“Although I have clearly articulated Tibetan aspirations, which are in accordance with the constitution of the People’s Republic of China and the laws on national regional autonomy, we have not obtained any concrete result. Judging by the attitude of the present Chinese leadership, there is little hope that a result will be achieved soon. Nevertheless, our stand to continue with the dialogue remains unchanged…..As a free spokesperson of the Tibetan people I have repeatedly spelled out their fundamental aspirations to the leaders of the People’s Republic of China” (emphasis added) (Extracts from March 10 Statement by HH The Dalai Lama 2010)
Many people will be asking what is meant by “Tibetan aspirations”? Does this refer to the wishes of the Tibetan people? If so what evidence supports an assertion that Tibetans inside Tibet are facing torture, prison and bullets for an aspiration, defined by and contained within communist China’s constitution?
As revealed by the decades of resistance to Chinese rule, the widespread protest of 2008, and presently, the common aspiration remains for national freedom and independence, a reality recognized by His Holiness:
“I also know that every Tibetan hopes and prays for the full restoration of our nation’s independence” (HH The Dalai Lama March 10-1994)
