Reports coming out of occupied Tibet that Tibetans are being forced to prostrate to images of Chinese dictator and his politburo thugs. Domestic Shrines to Tibetan Buddhist deities and images of the Dalai Lama are being torn sown, only the political leadership of China’s regime is worthy of adoration. Of course as you can see from the photo above Tibetans are so contented and happy to make obeisance to the enlightened, all compassionate Xi Jinping!
There are many just causes of freedom to support, actions demanding solidarity with those who face oppression and human rights violations. Each and all require opposition and exposure we respect Anonymous for being engaged in such activism.
Sure we’re biased, yet it’s fair to emphasize an important consideration that should be of considerable importance to all those who value a peaceful and non-violent response to injustice, oppression and abuse.
Of all the world’s conflicts and struggles for freedom there’s only one, which at its very core holds firm to the principles of non-violence. That is waged by the Tibetan people under the brutal tyranny of the Chinese regime. Despite the terrorism forced upon them by the illegal Chinese occupation of their country Tibetans in their hearts hold fast to the values of their Buddhist and native culture.
People who suffer under the violent suppression of a government or foreign occupier have the right to determine the nature and course of their resistance. Many understandably support such causes, indeed there seems to exist a strange calculus operating in which the bloodier the opposition, the greater level of global concern. What solidarity though for the courageous Tibetans who face the occupying Chinese regime with a non-violent response?
To fellow activists within and beyond Anonymous who express a personal commitment to the principles of peace and non-violence we invite you to show an equal degree of active solidarity to Tibet as offered to equally just causes such as Palestine.
Our amazing team across Twitter have just reported that the anonymous action which operates as #Op_Tibet has released a video statement ahead of Tibetan Independence Day February 13 in which they announced an intention, as a demonstration of solidarity on that day, to strike out against websites of China’s regime.
Our resolution for 2019 is to continue reporting and opposing the tyranny of China’s regime against the Tibetan people. In addition we’ll be exposing those governments, institutions, politicians, corporations and media who choose to appease China. Across social-media our amazing team on Twitter and Facebook shall ensure that the just cause of Tibet is given a clear, accurate and determined presentation. Those who misrepresent Tibet’s history, it’s present situation or the plight of Tibetans will be vigorously challenged.
There’s four main areas of activism forming our focus this year.
On February 13 we shall be celebrating ‘Tibetan Independence Day’ raising awareness across social-media of Tibet’s rightful claim to national freedom.
In the week before March 10 we’ll be launching our online lobby of political representatives, to make sure that Tibet’s cause for independence is represented to your politician.
Following that action from March 11 through March 22 we report on and challenge the anticipated silence of the 63rd United Nations Commission On The Status Of Women and its associated NGO Forum on the issue of China’s forced sterilizations. We have friends who will be on site monitoring developments.
Then during May we’ll be actively supporting @Glasto4TIBET who will be present across the Festival during June 26 through 30 to raise the Tibetan national flag and enegage with folks about the cause of Tibet.
As ever we welcome and invite your participation in these actions. Keep updated and informed by following @tibettruth
In that tragic land, once a free and peaceful nation, reports today of a Tibetan who self-immolated in protest of China’s illegal and violent occupation of Tibet. Details are few at the time of this post. A Tibetan youth, named as Dhorbo, set himself ablaze on November 4 2018 in Ngaba region of eastern Tibet’s Amdo region self-immolation.

Thanks to those immensely courageous Tibetans for getting news of this to the wider world.
