Exposing the truth behind China’s occupation of Tibet
China has brutally occupied my homeland for over 50 years but my people continue their courageous resistance. Follow this blog, as I share what I see, feel, and experience... leaving Beijing wide open.
By protesting the video put out by the Tibetan Government-in-Exile that shows Tibetans being beaten and tortured in Tibet last year, and then blocking YouTube to make sure that nobody in China’s borders sees the footage, the Chinese government made international headlines and ensured that millions more people will see and hear about the footage.
This is the beauty of a lying, paranoid force like that of our friends in Beijing – they just can’t help themselves. It’s like my friend said to me the other day: “They’ve already lost, it’s just a matter of time.”
Rare footage of a protest made it out of Tibet this past weekend. The Tibetans who sent it will likely be caught, and if they are, they will definitely be tortured and imprisoned. That’s just how it goes in Tibet these days.
Tibet is under de-facto martial law. The plateau has been virtually sealed off from the outside world, and Chinese troops and security forces are in the streets everywhere. All communication is strictly monitored, and in some places mobile phone service has been shut down completely. » Read the rest of this entry «
The Tibetan government-in-exile just released this shocking footage smuggled out from Tibet. It is awful. I sat at my desk and cried while I watched it. The Chinese government doesn’t see Tibetans as human beings. They never have.
WARNING: This video includes extremely graphic footage.
We’ve heard so many accounts about the terrible violence the authorities have used against Tibetans in the past year, but this is the first video footage that has made it out. It’s very hard to watch, but it is our truth and nothing China does can hide this from the world.
It seems as if the English writers in China’s state media have completely lost it since the Dalai Lama’s annual March 10th statement – in which he calls life in Tibet under Chinese occupation a “hell on earth” – was released yesterday. This single phrase has instantly transformed what is normally mildly painful propaganda on Tibet, into almost incoherent ranting.
I wanted to pull out aÂ few good lines from this China Daily article: Hole’s in Dalai’s Story (Not even going there on the title) but I just couldn’t decide. Please read and see for yourselves. If nothing else, it’s good for a laugh.
Tibetans and supporters march in London on March 8
I am constantly moved by the incredible support that Tibetans receive from people of conscience all over the world. If it were up to the people, Tibet would have been freed a long time ago.
And, in times like these, when Tibetans inside Tibet are being so viciously terrorized by the Chinese authorities, global solidarity actions are like a light in the darkness – giving us all the morale boost we need to keep moving forward. » Read the rest of this entry «
