Looking at the image above we see the arrogant triumphalism of the colonizer, imposing their culture upon an oppressed people, whose lands and freedom have been stolen. More closely still and an underlying racism is present, a sense of superiority, regarding itself as a bringer of so-called civilization.
Yet there’s an even darker force at work here, a calculated and socially engineered assault. One that seeks to eliminate a cultural identity, to degrade, criminalize, humiliate and replace a culture, forcing a people into accepting the traditions and values of a foreign tyranny.
The First Nations of North America have of course been through that genocidal process, they too were forced into the clothes of their oppressor, marginalized, brainwashed and terrorized into complying with the dictates of an oppressive, merciless and exploitative occupier.
Cultural genocide is not a fading sepia page of history, as the Tibetan people know very well.
The following religious leaders are utterly silent on China’s genocidal persecution of Tibetans in occupied Tibet and Uyghurs in occupied east Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang region)
Grand Imam of al-Azhar
Regarded by some as the highest authority in Sunni Islamic thinking, the present incumbent, Ahmad al-Tayyeb has offered no words of concern or opposition on China’s genocidal assault against his Uyghur Muslim brothers and sisters.
Primate Of The Russian Orthodox Church
Mr Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev like his political colleagues within the Kremlin is completely silent on the odious excesses of the Chinese regime and has not spoken a word of concern on the terrorism being inflicted upon the Uyghurs.
His church cut a secret deal with the Chinese regime in a what has proved to be a failed effort to protect Catholics in China. That arrangement required from the Vatican silence on issues such as the plight of Tibetans and Uyghurs.
Chief Rabbinate Council Of Israel
This body, headed by the Rabbis of various Jewish schools, has neither condemned or opposed the brutal tyranny waged against the Uyghur people.
Archbishop Of Canterbury
The Church Of England is deeply enmeshed within the British political establishment. The current office-holder Justin Welby has like his Catholic colleague, remained tight-lipped on the persecution of Uyghurs.
Moderator Of The Church Of Scotland
Martin Fair, like his predecessors refuses to comment on China’s vicious oppression of the Uyghurs, or indeed offer any concern on the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh offering a fellowship to Professor Jiang Hiefu. An individual with close links to China’s forced-organ removal atrocities.
There’s numerous reasons for the ghastly silence of these supposedly compassionate and spiritual figures, in essence though their refusal to speak out against China is a result of political and economic forces. Be that a shared political ideology with China’s regime, trade considerations; or in the case of the Vatican naive and misguided collaboration, the result is complicity.
Caution: Disturbing viewing advisory.
But this footage shot inside one of the many child detention centers run by the Chinese regime in occupied East Turkistan, demands to be witnessed. Because it shows a glimpse of the brutality and abuse inflicted upon Uyghur children, already abducted from their parents and mentally and emotionally traumatized inside what are indoctrination prisons.
This is happening on a massive scale and like the sickening abuse suffered by infants who are targeted by pedophiles, the scars left by such violations last a lifetime.
Yet these atrocities are being deliberately ignored by the very organization which declares itself as a guardian and champion of children’s rights. Despite being repeatedly informed, lobbied and appealed to Save The Children (STC) is refusing to offer a word of concern or condemnation against the terrorism being inflicted by China’s regime against Uyghur infants.
We are determined to continue our exposure of and challenge to STC and invite all those supporting human rights and opposing child abuse to join us. That organization’s silence is nothing less than complicity and as such makes them a legitimate focus for action!
Make known your concerns to: @ingerashing (Ms Inger Ashing CEO) of @save_children

Tibetans and friends of Tibet are today celebrating the birthday of the Dalai Lama. Yet several million Tibetans will not be. This is because to do so will risk extreme punishment by the Chinese regime. who have ordered the the people of occupied Tibet to reject their beloved Buddhist leader in favor of Xi Jinping.
Any expression whatsoever supporting, respecting or celebrating the Tibetan leader is treated as criminal activity. The consequences are severe and dangerous. There is only one party to honor and that is the Communist Party of China.

Well the inevitable has arrived and the goal of China’s regime, to extend its cancerous control over Hong Kong, realized. Defended by what that fetid authority claims as ‘law’. According to declarations from Beijing it ‘s now a criminal offense to show any sign of dissent against the Chinese authorities. Opposition to the dark excesses of Xi Jinping’s dictatorship is met with a range of vicious and oppressive punishments.
Torture, executions, forced-labor and disappearances are the incoming abnormal for Hong Kong, a grim and dangerous future awaits. One that was entirely predictable and known to those British politicians and civil servants who in signing their 1984 agreement with China cruelly and cynically betrayed the citizens of Hong Kong.
It is unlikely that the true nature and extent of Britain’s appeasement during those negotiations shall ever be fully known, even what will prove a heavily a redacted account of events is scheduled to remain a secret until 2026
What is blatantly clear is that the British in their early talks with Deng Xiaoping’s regime told ithemselves that it was possible to keep control and influence over Hong Kong. That position soon crumbled and Margaret Thatcher and her advisors adopted a strategy of prioritizing UK financial interests in the region. The assurances on protecting freedoms, democracy and autonomy were always destined to be little more than posturing, diplomatic face-saving for the British. After all in their over a century of rule in Hong Kong they had done almost nothing to build genuine democratic rights and infrastructure. It was a colonial occupation.

The platitudes offered by Britain on its treaty obligations to ensure civil and political freedom for Hong Kong’s citizens are exposed when measured against the economic determination of several UK governments to secure lucrative trade relations with China. That remains the policy of Boris Johnson and his advisors. Even as protestors today took to the streets in Hong Kong to oppose the tyrannical law imposed by Beijing the focus of British foreign policy consultants is securing profits from the Chinese.
In truth, like the State Department, the British Foreign Office and political establishment have long known about the odious excesses of China’s regime. Just like they knew in their negotiations on Hong Kong that they were consigning its people to the bloody maw of Chinese rule. We see reports today that one or two members of the British authorities have spoken in their Parliament of their concerns about Uyghur women being forcibly sterilized on order of the Chinese authorities.
This is political opportunism, not a legitimate commitment to human rights. We say this because as part of activism over the years our network worked tirelessly to tell governments including that of the UK of China’s mass forced sterilization campaigns. Yet despite detailed documents and reports on the issue made available to political representatives in England, no action was taken. Indeed those women whose lives had been viciously traumatized by China’s forced sterilization policies were ignored, while the very same foreign relations advisors who counseled the UK government on Hong Kong remained tight-lipped. Fully aware of the atrocities but more concerned with encouraging and maintaining commercial relations with the Chinese tyranny.
A similar duplicity and appeasement contributed to the failed treaty on Hong Kong, there was never any genuine commitment to protecting citizens rights there. The emphasis was upon securing long-established British economic interest in the region It was with that in mind that Margaret Thatcher and her negotiating advisors signed up to the empty promises agreed by China.

It was from the beginning a treachery forged from financial interests, with a final tragic and unavoidable conclusion. Those architects of the Sino-British Joint Declaration knew damn well what the outcome would be, but it was not the fate of Hong Kong’s people which troubled them. Rather protecting British political, diplomatic and economic interests!
For anyone needing to get a closer inspect on the tangled corruption of US governance and policy on China, here’s a short breakdown.
Trump and his Administration, advised by intelligence agencies shut the door on Huawei, asserting national security interests. Meanwhile economic sanctions on China tighten against an increasingly hostile narrative cautioning on China’s expanding global influence.
Yet while the President struts and postures on China, a corporation who some have claimed he held investments in, is supplying DNA kits to the Chinese regime. So what you may ask that’s just international business.
Well the equipment in question is a vital component of a disturbing policy that’s forcibly taking DNA and blood samples from hundreds of millions across China, and occupied lands such as Tibet and East Turkistan. The aim of this campaign is to assemble a colossal data-base enabling the state even greater control, monitoring and identification. It is genetic surveillance and oppression.
A researcher with Thermo Fisher Scientific stated that:
“The company designed one testing kit to look for the specific genetic markers sought by the Ministry of Public Security, Zhong said, a common industry practice. Another was tailored to distinguish between China’s ethnic groups, including Uighurs (sic) and Tibetans”. (emphasis added) Source
A February 2019 Fortune report claimed that Thermo Fisher Scientific has chosen to stop selling genetic testing equipment in occupied East Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang Province). What of the rest of China? Supplies sold in Beijing are not capable of transport to that region?
One thing for sure there is no consent, people must comply, failure to do so results in arrest beatings, torture and prison.
This worrying reality however does not appear to concern either Trump or the company itself Thermo Fisher Scientific, whose involvement was reported on by human rights organizations.
China is intensifying its DNA terrorism against not only its own people but Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians and Manchurians. There is of course no choice when the jack-booted thugs stop you in the street, march into your place-of-work, or breakdown your front door.
You comply and give up your blood and saliva or face torture and prison. To think that Thermo-Fisher, a good ‘ol American corporation is profiting from this tyranny by supplying the Chinese regime with ‘testing kits’
Meanwhile in occupied Tibet the oppression continues under the ever present surveillance systems, facial recognition cameras and body-scanner check-points. To further eradicate any sense of Tibetan cultural identity the people of Tibet are being coerced into removing Buddhist prayer flags
These latest actions, set against the backdrop of over a million Uyghurs held in concentration camps and Tibet in chains, its children forced to speak only Chinese is a form of genocide that Himmler and his Nazi thugs would have recognized!
To those who claim any parallel with the harrowing crimes of National Socialist Party is invalid and inaccurate you are referred to the Tibetan women whose lives have been forever traumatized by China’s mass-sterilization program. Or talk with an elderly Uyghur woman now without her family, all held in the camps, while she is daily enduring the misery of carrying out forced-labor.
If that doesn’t convince you pay a visit to one of the countless detention centers across occupied East Turkistan where thousands of Uyghur infants are being held, heartbroken, confused and in shock at being taken from their Mothers and Fathers. This is child abuse on an industrial scale.
What is being inflicted upon the Tibetan and Uyghur people is nothing less than cultural genocide, some may wince at the analogy, tough!
Is anyone really surprised at the idea of an American President endorsing the torture and genocidal policies of the Chinese regime? More here If so then such incredulity is based on a lack of knowledge. The cold fact is that the photo-opportunities at the White house and occasional comments on human rights are a concealment. US Administrations care little for the plight of Tibetans or Uyghurs under the brutal rule of China.
Now John Bolton’s claims that Trump supported Chinese dictator Xi Jinping’s establishment of concentration camps to incarcerate untold numbers of Uyghurs may or not be accurate. What though is a matter of record is that successive Presidents and State Department officials have valued trade and geo-political interests with China far beyond the protection of human rights or freedom.
How else can we explain the disclosure that ‘interrogation’ techniques used in Guantanamo were in part based upon a Chinese ‘Cold War’ torture manual! This was without doubt only possible with the knowledge and approval of senior US officials, with the unwritten consent of the Administration. More Here
Just how far US Presidents have been willing to appease the Chinese regime was exposed by reports that back in 2002 Chinese intelligence officials were allowed into Guantanamo to interrogate, threaten and abuse Uyghurs held there. More Here A visit approved by Bush (Junior) and the State Department, during a time when requests were being denied to US Congressmen for access to the detention facility!
It’s not about the truth telling or not of Bolton, nor if Trump really did applaud China’s concentration camps, rather the focus should be upon the decades of appeasement towards China by successive Presidents and State Department officials. That’s not news or speculation but a matter of fact!
So let’s get this right shall we..the Tibetan Youth Congress and Students For Free Tibet welcome and support the idea of U-Tsang being recognized as independent but not Amdo or Kham?
What on earth has happened to the Tibetan movement? Have the TYC and SFT forgotten the sacrifices and political aspirations from Tibetans across all three of Tibet’s regions? Well if so it looks like we are are the only activist network in solidarity with national independence for Chol-ka-Sum.
According to a SFT report: “This bill represents a historic milestone for the Tibetan people who have struggled for freedom and independence from China for the last 70 years and it will go down in history as an important moment when the American people recognized Tibet’s legitimate claim to independence,” said Gonpo Dhundup, President, Tibetan Youth Congress.
While H.R.6948 refers to the “Tibet Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China,” Students for a Free Tibet and the Tibetan Youth Congress have engaged with Congressman Perry’s office to request that he amend this language so as to include the whole of Tibet, not just the TAR. “.
The key question for those organizations is this: will they still be publicly applauding and backing the Congressman’s bill if he refuses to change the wording??
