Amnesty International is trying to draw attention to them as the Olympic torch nears Tibet. It's scheduled to pass through the capital, Lhasa, on Saturday.
The group says 3,000 other people arrested in March were either freed or formally arrested. But Amnesty International says there's been no word on the other 1,000-plus.
The group adds that it's hard getting information out of Tibet because police and security forces have confiscated mobile phones and computers from monasteries, nunneries, and private homes.
The riots, which involved Buddhist monks, were aimed at winning Tibet's independence from China.
