With Tibetan Independence Day arriving tomorrow along with the launch of Anonymous action in support of Tibet news just dropped in from our Twitter team about a strike against a Chinese government website by ‘Operation Tibet’. Information posted on social media reveals the action was taken in response to an attempted cyber attack which was made against our email account./. Genuine thanks to @tibettruth and @_The_Puni_sher_ for sharing news on this
Many thanks to @Op_TibetHQ @AnonymousTibet
Subscribers and visitors will realize that a central objective of our activism is to expose and challenge the disinformation and propaganda of China’s regime and its allies. As such we are engaged in an information campaign to reach out across social-media to the many who have little or no idea about Tibet and the plight of its people.
Our main platforms for such action involve Twitter and Facebook, and thanks to the dedication and creativeness of amazing colleagues we’ve established a strong profile and presence for Tibet’s cause.
In addition this site is an important and resource-rich source of information, online actions and news on Tibet. It’s global reach is impressive and we monitor traffic regularly and note rising numbers of views from within China.
We’d like to expand on such progress and to that end we recently upgraded its functionality, navigation and look to ensure a fast and easy access to our information, performing across a range of devices.
Help Us Build Global Connections
You can easily help give greater exposure and reach to our site, and in doing so connect even more people across the internet to the facts on Tibet.
If you have a Blog, website or social media page we ask you to please consider placing a link to our site https://tibettruth.com
Such a simple action, collectively, will be a direct assistance in further increasing our site’s prominence on search-engines. A development which we are sure will bring a frown to the faces of China’s regime 🙂
Our resolution for 2019 is to continue reporting and opposing the tyranny of China’s regime against the Tibetan people. In addition we’ll be exposing those governments, institutions, politicians, corporations and media who choose to appease China. Across social-media our amazing team on Twitter and Facebook shall ensure that the just cause of Tibet is given a clear, accurate and determined presentation. Those who misrepresent Tibet’s history, it’s present situation or the plight of Tibetans will be vigorously challenged.
There’s four main areas of activism forming our focus this year.
On February 13 we shall be celebrating ‘Tibetan Independence Day’ raising awareness across social-media of Tibet’s rightful claim to national freedom.
In the week before March 10 we’ll be launching our online lobby of political representatives, to make sure that Tibet’s cause for independence is represented to your politician.
Following that action from March 11 through March 22 we report on and challenge the anticipated silence of the 63rd United Nations Commission On The Status Of Women and its associated NGO Forum on the issue of China’s forced sterilizations. We have friends who will be on site monitoring developments.
Then during May we’ll be actively supporting @Glasto4TIBET who will be present across the Festival during June 26 through 30 to raise the Tibetan national flag and enegage with folks about the cause of Tibet.
As ever we welcome and invite your participation in these actions. Keep updated and informed by following @tibettruth
Grateful thanks to @tibettruth for the graphic

Following yesterday’s news of a fire at Lhasa’s Jokhang temple, questions are turning to the cause. Of course it wont be long now before a servile and uncritical mainstream media dutifully report the official version from China’s regime. This will claim that faulty wiring or insufficient attention to safety measures caused the blaze, alternatively Tibetans may be blamed for their traditional practice of lighting butter lamps as offerings. Anything is possible with a regime that is dependent upon deception and propaganda!
Across our digital planet however people rightly look to other reasons for the fire and wonder, given the violent and oppressive nature of China’s occupation of Tibet, if responsibility rests with the Chinese regime. There are grounds for such speculation, not least that China views Tibetan Buddhism as representing Tibetan cultural and national identity. As such it is targeted with a number of highly repressive controls, with monasteries now run by approved members of the local Chinese communist party, totalitarianism has placed a suffocating stranglehold over Tibet’s Buddhist culture. Military check-points, barbed wire and machine guns are a common site at monasteries. Given this reality, you won’t be surprised to know that there will be no tears shed by China’s government at the sight of the Jokhang consumed by fire.
There have been other Buddhist sites burned down across Tibet, which were attributed to ageing Tibetan architecture, electrical faults or unguarded fires in kitchens. Such claims. coming from the mouth of a regime which is actively repressing the practice Buddhism in Tibet are problematic and remain unable to convince. Which explains why in the wake of yesterday’s inferno social media was buzzing with images and questions on the Jokhang fire. Meanwhile today Anonymous activists have been posting across Twitter of their intent to target Chinese government websites, an action which they presumably is justified, not only on the possibility that China’s regime may have been responsible for the blaze, but also as a response to the ongoing tyranny against Tibetans and their culture.
