China’s Psychological Assault On Tibet’s Children

One of the areas in which the Chinese regime excels in is its use of euphemism. Like all dictatorships it uses such language to dilute, distract and conceal the more odious of its policies and practices.

The onslaught against Tibetan culture marches relentlessly on. China’s regime targets the children of occupied Tibet robbing them of their cultural identity within indoctrination centers. Such as the one above in the Tibetan town of Chamdo near the border with Tibet’s Kham region.
