An Appeal From @tibettruth

Attention:
Jack Dorsey
CEO
Twitter

Jack,

We’ve had our Twitter account since 2009. During the years it has grown to become a powerful voice supporting human rights, justice and national freedom for the people of Tibet.

@tibettruth brings you facts, information that’s not censored or distorted to appease the Chinese regime. We provide uncompromising exposure of China’s vicious treatment of Tibet.

In addition to news, special reports and related information we also run and update a range of online actions that address human rights issues, challenge organizations that are deliberately silent on Tibet or actively appeasing the Chinese authorities.

Our digital activism has attracted support, encouragement and active solidarity from around the world, at one stage we had a community of nearly 13, 000 followers.

We had hoped to build upon that progression, with the objective of expanding outreach, bringing the issue of Tibet to an ever wider audience.

Such ambitions however curiously stalled some three years back, as we began to notice a halt to the total of folks foillowing the account. It was as if a throttle had been applied.

This was followed by a steady and consistent reduction in followers, despite our active presence and engagement across the social media platform.

Then came news in 2018 that Twitter was implementing a policy to remove fake accounts and address the bot problem, with people reporting a marked drop in followers.

Had our account been wrongly tangled up in that cull by Twitter’s algorithms? Well on a number of occasions we experienced a lockdown, claims that we we’re an automated account, or other assertions of violating policy. Each time these were overturned and apologies offered by Twitter.

Yet the reduction of followers continued, our tweets to @TwitterSupport on the issue ignored. At the time of this statement the total has fallen to 10, 290. Meanwhile we see that other Tibet related accounts are showing increased follower rates.

We do not believe this is down to the form or content of our Twitter engagement, nor do we consider that people don’t wish to subscribe to our account, or receive news and information on Tibet.

Having closely monitored this decline we regard @tibettruth has been unjustly targeted by Twitter as a rogue account, and penalized through a limitation of, and reduction upon our community of followers.

Whatever the reasons behind this, we are being denied the freedom to expand our account, prevented from reaching more followers. This has the effect of censorship. A consequence which must bring some twisted pleasure to the Chinese regime, that detests our online activism and reportage.

It’s our hope Jack that on considering this appeal you will be able to exert some influence to free up our account, stop the ongoing cull and so allow us to grow. If you support human rights, civil liberties and freedom-of-speech we trust you can assist and so enable our voice for Tibet to reach ever more people across Twitter.

Thanks for your patience in reading this.

Asking Friends Of Our Tibet Activism To Donate Towards Laptop Replacement

Asking Friends Of Our Tibet Activism To Donate Towards Laptop Replacement

Image: archivenet

 
Firstly, apologies to friends and subscribers who may have noticed our online absence recently. This has been caused by two laptops used for editing the site and social media actions crashing and becoming inoperable.

This has meant using community libraries, but with the hysteria surrounding the current flu-virus that alternative has been shut-down.

Right now this post has been possible via a friend’s kindness, but we sorely need to get a replacement and wondered if those who support our activism for Tibet would consider making a donation towards our goal of buying a  Dell 15 Inspiron 7000 .

Our blog is not usually a chosen platform for such a request, however to restore unrestricted online operations we need ASAP support towards our very limited funds. Which is why we’ve decided to make this post in the hope you may kindly consider donating towards our goal of $1000, that would enable us to invest in a new laptop.

If you can help us please visit our dedicated Paypal donations link: http://paypal.me/tibettruth

Anonymous Crash Chinese Sites In Online Attack Supporting Tibet

Anonymous Crash Chinese Sites In Online Attack Supporting Tibet

Image: original @_Roger_s_ augmented by @tibettruth

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.

Thanks To Those Anonymous Across The Million Mask March For Supporting Tibet

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.

All things reach their end and so it is that the Glastonbury Festival in England has concluded, tents are being put away, bags filled, cars prepared for the journey home. Many wonderful memories, good music, new friends, sunshine and solidarity under the sun.

We’ve been very happy to support and report on the activism of our UK colleagues, #teamGlasto4TIBET who did an amazing job raising the Tibetan flag across the event, special shoutout to @goonchild4 @_silverbomber @MrChrisBrand  They were very kindly sponsored by a number of our longstanding supporters, who made it possible to supply Tibet Flags, poles and other items. Genuine thanks to @dh_a_heller, @HeyJude408, @JamesDoorley, @ofhominidae.

Appreciation must also go to @tibettruth who were tireless in reporting and networking the action. Respect too for the many Tibet Flag images shared by @anonymzmeduza and @ZerodEgo.

Next year is the 50th anniversary of the Festival it would be a great occasion to see once more the beautiful symbol of Tibet flying.

Anonymous Crash Inside Tibet A Chinese Propaganda College Site

We are just seeing on Twitter reports from Anonymous activists #Op_Tibet of a cyber attack against a Chinese regime website located in occupied Tibet. According to a number of tweets the servers of a site for a propaganda college have earlier this morning been hacked and disabled. As we write it’s presently offline, no doubt their admin will be trying to restore. Even if successful however it’s another vulnerability exposed and as we’ve witnessed with other sites targeted by Anonymous in the past it will in all likelihood be subjected to further strikes. This latest offensive has been linked with recent events at University of Toronto when a Tibetan, Ms Chemi Lhamo on election as student leader was barraged by by Chinese trolls in an organized campaign of hatred and disinformation. Thanks to our twitter team @tibettruth and special shoutout to @AnonymousTibet and @anonymzmeduza

Macron’s Elitist Fetish Appeases China Oppresses French Protests And Ignores Tibet

If you want an indicator of the venal condition of international politics then look no further than today’s visit to France of China’s dictator, Xi Jinping. Currently enjoying the many pleasures of French hospitality and hosted by President Macron. Whose developed sense of ‘pragmatism’ and devotion to globalized economics facilitates a nauseating appeasement of the Chinese regime.

Amid the photo-opportunities and spray-on smiles it’s contracts which are firmly on the table, prominent is the 300 jet deal signed off by Airbus. No doubt some folks are set to make a killing on the markets as France’s elite wine and dine the man who authorizes the state-inflicted terrorism against the people and culture of Tibet.

The principles of liberté, égalité, fraternité have no place within the negotiations and hand-shakes offered to China, those values are an inconvenience to an open and profitable engagement with the Chinese authorities.

Such principles however are very much alive within the hearts of France’s people, as displayed by ongoing protests waged by the des gilets jaunes (the yellow vests). A grassroots movement that arose during November 2018 to demand social, economic and political justice.

These legitimate demonstrations have on numerous occasions been met with police violence, baton charges, tear gas and rubber bullets. The streets of France are home to armored personal carriers, armed paramilitary, body-armored police and most recently units of the French army have been deployed.

All this against its own citizens, measures however which Xi Jinping would heartilly approve of, although he would counsel Macron to authorize the use of live rounds, electric batons, mass detentions and incarceration in ‘re-education’ camps!

Such a totalitarian nightmare is not likely to be imposed upon France yet in his elitist zealotry for globalization, and salivating hopes of securing trade agreements with China, President Macron forgets the history and guiding spirit of his nation. As he countenances a military response to ongoing unrest, orders police to forcefully break public opposition to his policies, and tramples over citizens rights he’s dishonoring the principles upon which the French Constitution was founded.

Those values of freedom, justice and human rights, so brutally denied when France itself experienced a brutal occupation, are the very same aspirations of the Tibetan people, who endure a miserable existence under an illegal and suffocating rule by China! There is a shared experience between France and Tibet, both have known immense suffering under foreign rule, equally their respective peoples value greatly and seek freedom, justice, political and civil rights.
