Doctor Sangay Is Flogging A Dead Yak!

Doctor Lobsang Sangay, the ‘Political Leader’ of the Central Tibetan Administration (formerly known as the Exiled Tibetan Government) has been busy again issuing declarations of appeasement in an effort to promote a ‘solution’ to the issue of Tibet, despite such overtures being consistently rejected by the Chinese authorities. Addressing a largely Chinese gathering in Washington DC he stated:

“The middle-way approach seeks for a genuine autonomy for the Tibetan people within the framework of the Chinese constitution. The Chinese government always alleges that Tibetans aim to split the nation, which is why we have taken into consideration not to challenge the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China,”.

This remark is wrong on so many levels, not least its cold betrayal of the struggle waged by Tibetans inside Tibet, who unlike Mr Sangay seek a re-establishment of Tibet’s rightful independence.  His comment also repeats and appeases a cynical fiction long peddled by the Chinese regime, let’s break that down.

Tibetans are not seeking to split China, why so? Well the cause waged by the Tibetan people has as its objective what in truth would be the restoration of a national freedom that previously was enjoyed by Tibetans living within the three regions of Tibet, prior to the invasion of 1950 and subsequent military occupation. This is not semantic argument but a political truth. Within international law Tibet has a very strong argument indeed to justify its definition as an independent nation under illegal occupation.

The latest appeasement from Doctor Sangay is a dangerous sellout of that fact, endorsing as it does an engineered falsehood that Tibet is an inalienable part of China. Such treacherous compromises are not advancing the cause of Tibet, nor realizing progress on what have been fruitless discussions with a Chinese regime that demands total capitulation!

  1. I already don’t want read anything what is linked with L.S. actions. I get allergic to him from the beginning and get very angry about his falshood. He thinks everybody is stupid and can’t think for them self. Perhaps the majority because they Love and Support HH Dalai Lama so much and don’twant to abandon that. But if L.S. succeeds than all the self immolations were for vain if he manages to sell Tibet out to the Chinese..and thats makes me really up set! :~[

    • Sangyi, your feelings are based upon your love for a Tibet free from Chinese occupation, many Tibetans no doubt share such frustration but choose to remain largely silent.
