I’m disappointed that our mainstream papers and media channels barely mention these acts of resistance inside occupied Tibet. Would it really require some similar self-sacrifice outside a Chinese embassy in London or Washington DC to draw their attention ?
Indeed so, mainstream media is by nature fickle, forgetful and often lazy…see how quickly it moved on from the nightmare of Fukushima, now virtually no coverage on the continuing radioactive catastrophe there..meanwhile on media coverage on Tibet would suggest you you read this article https://tibettruth.com/2012/02/14/people-deserve-the-truth-not-media-distortions-on-tibet/
