Hundreds of students at the Xiahe middle school in China’s northwest Gansu province led a demonstration to protest education conditions. The Tibetan students were expressing their disappointment over the rise in the number of Chinese students in colleges, arguing that the seats normally given to Tibetans were being given to Chinese students instead. According to a local, there were a few police, but no violence. –posted by Catherine Gao
