4 thoughts on “Six Truths Of Tibet’s Rangzen (Independence)

    1. Thanks Mandy for your comment..well as a first step perhaps it would be helpful, to work towards that objective, by establishing an international effort to establish. through an independent and internationally monitored plebiscite, what status for their nation the 6 million Tibetans desire. If China’s regime is confident that Tibetans given a free choice would decide to remain under Chinese rule then it would not have any objections for that to be assessed through such a vote.

      Equally if the exiled Central Tibetan Administration was secure in its claim that Tibetans in Tibet favor its Middle Way Approach over Tibetan independence it too would not oppose an internationally supervised vote to determine that. Such an action would be accord with the long expressed position of the Dalai Lama:

      “I have always stated that the central issue is that the Tibetan people must ultimately choose their own destiny. It is not for the Dalai Lama, and certainly not for the Chinese to make that decision. It should ultimately be the wishes of the Tibetan people that should prevail” (The Dalai Lama, Yale University, 9th October 1991)

      This is entirely reasonable and just, in that the fate of a culture and nation should be determined by respecting and allowing the voice of the people to decide any decision. As it presently stands what exists is a stagnant exchange between China’s regime and the Central Tibetan Administration, a dialogue that is entirely marginalizing the very rights and hopes of the Tibetan people.
