Each passing day that Tibetans endure the brutal occupation of their land, and in exile voices are raised to oppose and expose China’s tyrannical and illegal presence in occupied Tibet, something extraordinary is taking place.
An action in support of the just cause of Tibetan national freedom which often goes unnoticed by many organizations and individuals who are active on Tibet.
Due to its covert nature it does not attract the attention of the wider Tibetan movement, but we have been very pleased and honored to report on such activism over recent years.
We refer of course to those anonymous activists who collaborate across ‘Operation Tibet’, ‘Team-Riddler’ and ‘The Creed‘. These individuals carry out amazing work in solidarity with Tibet and have inflicted much damage upon the digital infrastructure of the Chinese regime and its corrupted corporations.
As part of that action Anonymous launched a campaign targeting China’s mass-surveillance system, and have been quietly removing Chinese servers linked with that from the internet.
Today this incredible activism has witnessed yet another such server being taken offline, reported across Twitter. At the time of writing https://126.96.36.199/ is not accessible, a very welcome situation to all those supporting human rights and freedom.
We wish to express our respect and genuine appreciation to all those individuals who are engaged in those operations.
With the commemoration of the 1959 Lhasa Uprising on March 10 we’d like to invite friends and subscribers to show support for Tibet’s just cause by joining our online lobby of political representatives.
It only takes a few minutes but sends a powerful communication in support of Tibetan national freedom to your local and regional politician.
Our Twitter crew @tibettruth has received a couple of hours ago a communication from #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet #TheCreed Anonymous activists involved in covert operations against China’s regime.
In an action described as ‘Operation Warm Up’ Anonymous crashed some of the available 6,057 RDP Chinese targets, disabling large numbers of computers from connecting to networks, including those of the Chinese authorities.
This remarkable strike was launched in advance of what chatter across Twitter suggests will be further action on February 13, a date marking Tibetan Independence Day.
We’d like to thank all those who engineered and implemented this latest digital assault against Chinese targets, we are aware of the risks and sacrifices required to plan and launch such actions. That activists operating within #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet #TheCreed are prepared to take a stand in support of Tibet’s just cause is a greatly welcomed expression of solidarity.
Taking the path of anonymous hack-tivism must be a lonely, challenging and indeed a courageous action. After all the corrupted governments and corporations targeted regard such activity as illegal. There exists a real risk of prosecution. Yet despite such risks anonymous activists are prepared to stand against injustice, tyranny and censorship in defense of liberty and human rights.
The anonymous support given to the cause of Tibet by #Op_Tibet is such an example. Exposing and challenging the Chinese regime. Targeting websites that channel disinformation and propaganda calculated to conceal the harrowing oppression suffered by Tibetans.
As a digital network dedicated to reporting and campaigning in support of Tibet we applaud those across Anonymous for their solidarity with the Tibetan struggle. We thank those who strike a blow against the terrorism of China’s government. Your determined activism is always greatly valued.
Our crew over on Twitter has today been sent a video statement from the Anonymous project called ‘Operation Tibet’. It calls upon those taking part in the global Million Mask March on November 5 to remember Tibet and also highlights China’s disturbing policy of forcing Uyghur children from their families and detaining them in brainwashing centers. Many thanks to @tibettruth and @AnonymousTibet @Project_Tibet for news on this.
As Chinese police today fired live rounds at protesters in Hong Kong what a disturbing yet utterly appropriate reminder that 70 years ago today a regime was born that inflicted genocidal suffering upon its own people through insane ideological policies. The so-called Great Leap Forwards, in truth it plunged China’s people backwards into a feudal condition, tortured by famine and environmental catastrophe. Millions perished as a consequence of the crazed dogma of the Chinese communist party ruler-ship. The misery was extended by the harrowing excesses of what was laughingly described as a Cultural Revolution, the only culture which prevailed was one of terror, thought-control, mass arrests, labor-camps and countless numbers of people murdered or broken enduring the misery of prison. This brutal state-approved and engineered madness was inflicted across not only across China, but brutalized too the occupied territories of Tibet, East Turkistan, Southern Mongolia and Manchuria. The destruction ran wild year-after year, families destroyed, monasteries dynamited, culture targeted for violent assimilation.
Nixon trumpeted a rapprochement with China, the CIA pulled the funding of Tibetan resistance fighters, the great betrayal had fallen. After Mao a respite, some hope flickered of an easing, but that proved to be illusory. The decade of the 1980s arrived bringing cynical moves of Deng Xiaoping and a supposed opening of the Chinese market, much was made of the economic reforms. Companies across the world licked their lips, while the machinery of terror remained, to maintain control for China’s corrupt authorities. The draconian policies continued, mass campaigns of forced sterilizations, censorship and a vicious denial of human rights were enforced. During 1987 through 1989 Tibetans again rose against Chinese rule, and the tanks rumbled past the Potala Palace. Many were shot, more tortured and disappeared. Then in the Summer of that last year Chinese students massed around a beacon for a democratic China, their dreams bled across the cold stones of Tiananmen Square following a government ordered massacre. As the blood was being washed away the US Administration was covertly arranging an emergency visit to Beijing, its envoy to reassure the Chinese authorities that business would not be interrupted.
Economic growth and the opening of Chinese markets witnessed throughout the 1990s a global rush to trade with China. The scent of money was on the wind and western corporations, backed by their governments wanted some of that profitable action. The human rights violations persisted, as did the oppression and tyranny, under the approving rule of Jiang Zemin. When questions were raised about doing business with a Chinese state that abused and tortured the response was to insist that ‘constructive engagement’ would result in progress. That economic liberalization would be followed by an improvement on civil freedoms and human rights. That was another deception. In 2001 China was admitted into the World Trade Organization and since that time its economy has risen to a position of global dominance, not without a creeping realization that there was a troubling cost to such expansion.
Along with the consumerism and commercial revolution, which in part has transformed Chinese society, China’s regime under, then President, Hu Jintao consolidated it’s power. While the world applauded China’s miraculous economic rise and salivated at the prospect of trade the denial of basic freedoms persisted. Torture, executions and prison camps maintained the social ‘harmony’. A condition inherited by the current glorious leader Xi Jinping, like Emperor Nero he has assumed the mantle of a supreme being. What cosmetic scraps of political accountability that previously linked his office to the Chinese communist party were swiftly abandoned. This dictatorship is engineering a new China, intensifying totalitarian control, extending state surveillance into every area of society, constructing more detention camps, dispatching thought-control police onto the streets. There exists only one truth according to this new cult; loyalty to the leader and complete obedience and devotion to the communist party of China.
Today Xi Jinping observed a mass military parade in Beijing. The choreographed thousands dutifully waved their flags, as the jackboots, missiles and tanks paraded in celebration. In Hong Kong the bullets were flying. Seventy years have passed, the brutalized people of Tibet, East Turkistan, Southern Mongolia, Manchuria, Hong Kong and China are asking how few are left for this corrupt and genocidal regime?
To anyone who would like to spend a few minutes online in support of Tibet’s just cause then we’ve excellent news for you!
March 10 is the Commemoration of the Lhasa Uprising of 1959, an important date within the Tibetan calendar.
It serves as a focal point to remember all those Tibetans who have given so much for Tibet’s national freedom and provides an opportunity for the exiled Tibetan community to remind the world about the plight of occupied Tibet and the hopes of its people to be free from Chinese occupation and tyranny.
Now not everyone can make it to their nearest Tibet rally, of which there will be many world-wide on that day. But there is an action you could take that’s in total solidarity with the March 10 protests.
With a few swipes and taps of the screen you can ensure that the the political aspirations of the Tibetan people reaches your political representative and government. This is critically important, as many within the political establishment are either unaware or misinformed about Tibet. Ask yourself, does your representative realize that Tibet was an independent nation, which has been illegally occupied? Let them know between now and March 10.
We’ve provided all the information needed in a Tibet Action Pack, it’s simple, will take only a few online moments, yet is powerful and critical information that presents the facts on Tibet’s independence and also poses an important question.
The Tibetan Youth Congress the largest exiled Tibetan organization dedicated to Tibet’s independence unveiled at a press conference, held yesterday in Dharamsala, Northern India, plans for three days of rallies, a peace march and vigil in Delhi to commemorate the 60th Lhasa Uprising on March 10, 2019.
“Tibet is in a critical state and at this moment in history, it is imperative for us to come together united in our stand for our nation and our people. Let us make our voices heard for our brothers and sisters inside Tibet,” said TYC President Tenzing Jigme
The action on Tibet this Tibetan Independence Day has been white hot.
Our crew over on Twitter have been reporting on the Anonymous strikes against Chinese government sites.
Working in support of ‘Operation Tibet’ activists called #Op_Tibet #blackhat_global and #teamriddler caused havoc to many sites run by China’s regime. Hundreds were hacked as reported by #blackhat_global with sensitive data exposed and vulnerable to further attacks. Others targets have been crashed and taken offline, cutting off the oxygen to the propaganda and lies such sites push.
It’s been truly amazing to see such solidarity, particularly on a day of such importance in the Tibetan calendar, when Tibet’s independence is honored and remembered.
We want to pay serious credit to @tibettruth for their tireless efforts in channeling news and networking. Special thanks and total respect to all those Anonymous activists within #Op_Tibet #teamriddler and #blackhat_global for donating your skills, support and commitment in your collective actions.
Lastly please put your hands together for the following @AnonymousTibet @anonriddler @teamriddler @_The_Puni_sher_ @Obrigadatialeni
