In a further effort to Sinicize Tibetan culture, and deceive the wider world into thinking that Tibet’s an intrinsic part of China, a series of propaganda events have been staged coinciding with the Lunar New festival a crucial celebration within Chinese tradition.

Tibetans, such as those in Shigatse, were pressurized into performing rituals (which since ancient times have marked the actual Tibetan New Year celebration of ‘Losar’) on or close to January 25. This date during 2020 marks the Chinese the Spring Festival,  it has nothing to do with traditional Tibetan New Year festivities.

That will be celebrated on February 24 and features a series of rituals that date back to the beginnings of Tibetan history, these are totally distinct and unique to Tibetan culture. However as they form such a significant component of Tibet’s cultural and national character the Chinese regime is now seeking to assimilate, dilute and manipulate those traditions to meet their political and disinformation purposes.

Please remember this on February 24, 2020, the first day of Tibetan Losar (New Year) the year of the Iron Mouse, 2147.
