Has the career activist and big bucks taken over ‘Free Tibet, a Tibet related organization in England? Are people with no genuine knowledge of Tibet, its people or cause dominating to the extent that Tibetans are being discriminated against and denied any meaningful employment by that organization? Is its focus more on generating cash to fund the salaries of staff than activism in solidarity with Tibet’s true cause? These and other troubling questions come to mind when reading an article by Adele Wilde-Blavatsky a former member of staff at that organization published today by the Tibet Telegraph Free Tibet Without Tibetans, No Thanks
This is the same group that refuses to support Tibetan independence, has for many years denied and been virtually silent and inactive on China’s forcible sterilizations of Tibetan women, while more recently according to @AnonymousTibet, has been linking Tibetan self-immolations with membership and donation promotions upon its website. For too long has there been those who have callously carved a career upon the corpse of Tibet, indifferent to the struggle waged by Tibet’s people, more concerned with self-promotion, career advancement and salary. As awareness of this exposure by Adele Wilde Blavatsky increases no doubt the reported 20, 000 membership of this organization will be giving careful thought to renewing a subscription, that some must now be asking, does it fund a gravy train, rather than a dedicated campaign for Tibetan independence?
