Does anyone, apart from those in denial, deluded or plain innocent of mind consider governments act with integrity, honesty and a genuine commitment to human rights?

If political systems forged from founding principles of justice, democracy, freedom and accountability to their citizens indulge in deception and manipulating public opinion it is naive on a colossal scale to regard information sourced to from China’s totalitarian regime as being factual, balanced or free from propaganda.

Such a reality of course is not allowed to obstruct the mainstream media’s goal of pumping out tasty morsels of news, no surprise then that the BBC today released a report of a 2012 meeting between the Dalai Lama and Mr Xiao Wunan. See HERE

An Executive Vice Chairman of the Asia Pacific Exchange and Cooperation Foundation we are informed that it was this card-carrying member of China’s communist regime who provided video footage of his meeting with the Tibetan leader. What a portrait of understanding, cooperation it presents, raising an illusory hope of progress in the notoriously failed efforts of an agreement on Tibet between China’s regime and the exiled Tibetan Administration.

Was the outreach by Mr Xiao indicative of a softening of attitude by the Chinese Regime towards the issue of Tibet, his unofficial meetings with prominent Tibetan leaders to be seen as a positive gesture, or was his presence reflecting a darker agenda?

“An Indian researcher Jayadeva Ranade (a former senior government official) in an article ‘A concerned dragon: China’s fresh overture to Tibetans’ wrote that Xiao Wunan probably carried a personal message from a senior Chinese leader, possibly Xi Jinping. Ranade wrote that he could have informed the Dalai Lama that he was welcome to spend his last days in Beijing provided he gave up ‘anti-China’ activities and expressed support for the Communist regime. The article also notes coincidentally, within a month of the meeting the designation of the Head of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was changed from ‘Kalon Tripa’ (Prime Minister) to the less controversial, from Beijing’s perspective, ‘Sikyong’ (political leader) Source: extract from2012  article by Jamyang Norbu ‘FREE RADIO FREE ASIA’!

One thing for sure his contacts with the Dalai Lama and Karmapa would not have happened without the consent or knowledge of China’s government, the same authority which consistently rejects any overture of compromise offered by the Dalai Lama and the exiled Tibetan Administration.

At the same time Beijing has long meddled within exiled Tibetan politics and its cancerous tentacles have extended into the heart of an Tibetan Administration that has abandoned the cause of its own people in pursuit of an autonomy under Chinese rule. Which brings us back to the objectives of Xia Wunan’s trip to Dharamsala, and despite the BBC description of him as  a former official, his role would have been far from informal. As suggested by the Indian researcher above, he would be able to exert further demands from the Chinese authorities. That he made available a video of his meeting too would suggest a propaganda objective, a moderate and flexible China, earnest in its efforts to reach an understanding! Whatever the motivations and directives which are concealed by the charm and smiles of Mr Xiao Wunan there can be no doubt that China’s Regime is relentless in its persecution and suppression of the Tibetan people. Until such time as China enjoys true political and civil freedom then the warm assurances of its envoys must be assessed with extreme scrutiny. Something which the BBC report failed to exercise in any great measure.

Reports yesterday from Tibet Express of what had been claimed to be an explosive device found near Namgyal Buddhist monastery; in the town of Dharamsala Northern India, home to the Dalai Lama, have today been updated by a statement from the Department of Security of Tibetan government in exile. The discarded and taped item was found to pose no danger. More details on Phayul HERE

 

The Fraudulent Defenders Of A Tolerant Society

If ever proof was needed that Earth is in truth a planetary detention center for the criminally insane then the manipulation and deception which was to hijack the Unity March, that challenged the appalling recent events on the streets of Paris, surely presents convincing evidence. The staged image of global political leaders seemingly leading this mass outpouring of solidarity against extremism was of course a fake, taken in a deserted street, surrounded by security forces! It was a photo-opportunity that simply could not be resisted and one that served a dark agenda, which predictably seeks further erosion of civil liberties and an increase in the power of the surveillance state!

The cynical sleight-of-hand, aided by a servile and at times hysterical media support was rightly exposed and criticized across the Internet, yet that outrage was eclipsed by the venom and condemnation at the presence of Israeli leader Benjamin Nentanyau, ‘The Butcher Of Gaza’ who has the blood of countless innocent Palestinians upon his hands. What had been born from the hopes and solidarity of French citizens was kidnapped and debased into a circus of propaganda. Those who had rained terror from the skies onto civilians in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq now donned the color of mourning and issued platitudes of deceit about freedom-of-speech, human rights and democracy! The terrorist elite  lifted aloft the birds of peace and justice and vowed to honor and defend freedom, it was a demonstration of delusion and deception on a scale reminiscent of 9/11.

Meanwhile China’s regime issued a statement condemning the shootings “We are deeply shocked at the terrorist attack and strongly condemn it,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said, “We mourn for the victims and express sympathy to the bereaved families and the injured.” SOURCE

Not much mourning from the global political elite for the murdered and tortured peoples of Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia, lands who suffer, at the hands of China, a genocidal assault against their culture, religions and national identity. The same leaders who engineered their duplicitous show of solidarity at Paris have done little but indulge the Chinese authorities, weasel words of diluted concern has greeted the endless list of atrocities authorized and committed by China’s totalitarian government. Freedom of speech will be defended in Europe while its violent suppression in Tibet and Palestine is callously ignored, such was the nauseating hypocrisy that shadowed the image taken on that protected and empty Parisian boulevard.

Latest Anti-Uyghur Propaganda From China's Regime

Latest Anti-Uyghur Propaganda From China’s Regime

Meanwhile ever vigilant to seek maximum advantage of global events China’s propaganda machine has been busy posting further anti-Muslim disinformation across the streets of towns and cities in East Turkestan. In these crude cartoons those forces which in reality are terrorizing Uyghur culture are transformed from soldiers of retribution to those of peace and unity. These racist inspired images have a perverse vulgarity reminiscent of anti-Jewish propaganda from the 1930s, with those deemed subversive by the state shown as worthy only for annihilation.  Untermensch (German for under-man, sub-man, subhuman) is a term used by the Nazis to describe so-called “inferior people”. An attitude not entirely dissimilar to that held by China’s regime to wards the brutalized, exploited, and colonized Tibetan, Uyghur and Mongolian peoples!

As commentators and politicians line-up to offer their insights and positions of freedom-of-speech, under the vicious tyranny of China’s regime people are denied that right, somehow their plight seems diminished, less valued by a western society that demands of its Muslim communities to respect and defend freedom-of-speech, while offering the mildest expression of unease as such freedom lies battered and bleeding across the occupied land of East Turkestan.

A New Year Resolution For Tibet

Well here we are at the close of 2014 and it’s been another very positive and successful year for our online activism on Tibet. A range of reports, campaigns and ground-breaking lobbying has ensured that the plight of the Tibetan people has been given wide exposure and the propaganda of China’s regime exposed and forcefully challenged. This work could not have taken place without the dedication, skills and commitment of folks who actively support our activism for Tibet.  In particular a shout-out must go to our Twitter account which, along with our presence on Facebook, has been a major voice for the cause of Tibet.

This activism has throughout the year received generous participation from many people across a number of countries, including China; in which we are striving to increase awareness and understanding on the issue of Tibet. We have also been kindly aided by donations towards our listed work. Such contributions have been a great encouragement and were directed towards annual costs for our online presence, service charges and maintaining security measures to preserve anonymity and afford protection against cyber-attacks. Additionally we are hoping that with further support we can at some stage replace computer and back-up resources.To those of you who have donated thank you for making it happen.

We look forward to dedicating our activism throughout 2015 to Tibet’s just cause and hope you will continue to support our efforts. Together we make the difference! Meanwhile wherever you are reading this may you enjoy happiness, health and prosperity during the coming year.

Information received and published from sources in the North Indian town of Dharamsala, home of the exiled Tibetan Administration, have reported a number injuries to Tibetan monks as Chinese paramilitary opened fire upon them as they sought to prevent the charred body of a Tibetan self-immolator being confiscated.

According to reports that quoted a localTibetan, ‘the police forcefully cremated the body of Kalsang Yeshi, 37, who died minutes after setting himself on fire on Tuesday, in an electric crematorium’. Other accounts claim that relatives of the Kalsang were at gunpoint forced to dump his remains into a nearby river! Two family members of the deceased were forced to throw the remains into a river at gunpoint, the source said. The same source also reported that other Tibetans injured in this latest assault are fearful of attending hospital lest they be arrested.

Reports late today from Phayul and Dossier Tibet of another self-immolation, this time in Tawu, in Tibet’s Kham Region.

The Tibetan man, named as Kalsang Yeshi, a 37 year-old Buddhist monk was said to have died following his protest, which he carried outside a Chinese ‘security’ post located at the nearby Nyitso monastery in the town of Tawu.

Chinese forces have confiscated and as in other cases are refusing to return the body to Kalsang’s family, thus denying traditional Buddhist rites for his death. This has resulted in large protests in the town, which no doubt will be responded to with a merciless crackdown by Chinese paramilitary. For more details please read: HERE
