What you may ask gives legitimacy to
the demands of Tibetans inside occupied
Tibet for independence?
That Tibet enjoyed prior to invasion by China in
1950 national governance and freedom?
Or is it based upon the fact that Tibetans are a
distinct people, with a unique culture, language
Could such a right be due to the reality
that in terms of international law Tibet may
be correctly defined as an independent nation
under illegal occupation?
The reasoning extends beyond these
factors, deriving from the tyranny and
cultural genocide waged against
Tibetans and their culture.
It is the fundamental truth that as a people
who are being violently denied their cultural,
political, civil and religious freedom Tibetans
recognize that only an end to Chinese rule
can offer genuine protection to their culture and
