Ngawang Sangdrol, of Garu Nunnery, was detained in 1992 and imprisoned for peacefully demonstrating against the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Her prison term spiked from an initial 3-years to a combined sentence of 23 years - a result of several sentence extensions within prison.
She remains an irrepressible champion of human rights and non-violence in spite of the daunting obstacles she faces. In Drapchi prison she continues to peacefully advocate for her beliefs while her sentence extensions mount.
