Tibetan Town Placed Under Paramilitary Occupation For Unauthorized Internet Use

In a land already suffocating under the terrorism imposed by the Chinese regime Tibetans continue to be targeted, criminalized, abused and viciously oppressed. Reports emerged today of Chinese paramilitary on the streets of Dza Wonpo, a town in occupied Tibet’s Kham region during  late 2019. That the information has surfaced now is due to the  complete lock-down forced upon Tibetans, daily activities are constantly monitored and recorded, informers are ever present, while the internet is under 24/7 surveillance by the Chinese authorities.

Under such circumstances it is remarkable that these images and report has been made available, due entirely to very courageous Tibetans from inside Tibet. From their information over thirty Tibetans were arrested and held between November 21 and December 12 2019, with a further eight people detained. Their ‘crimes’ it appears were being suspected of using the internet to contact exiled Tibetans, and possessing images of the Dalai Lama.

The response from the Chinese regime was typical, dispatching a massive convoy of ‘security’ vehicle and flooding the town with paramilitary troops. Such is the reality for Tibetans existing under the illegal and brutal rule of China.
