Less than twenty-fours hours after City officials of Alameda were hiding under their desks to avoid the controversy generated by plans to praise China’s regime by hoisting the Chinese flag, and issuing statements about honoring the people of China, some 7400 miles to the west of California Tibetans in Driru; situated in part of Tibet’s eastern region of Kham, were also troubled by thoughts of China’s flag. They have every reason to be as squadrons of jackbooted Chinese paramilitary had been dispatched to the area, along with motor-mouthed communist part officials. Their task, to ensure that the Tibetans displayed above their homes and monastery China’s flag. Unlike the well-suited members of Alameda’s City Hall who chose silence and evasion when pressed to commit themselves to opposing honoring the Chinese regime, Tibetans in that area, despite being acutely aware of the genuine dangers of resisting took a courageous stand and refused demands to fly the Chinese emblem.

The result was inevitable, with China sending a reported 18000 extra troops to enforce the dictate issued by the Chinese authorities, the town is now under lock-down, schools have been shut-down, Tibetans arrested, amid a barrage of other punishments, including Tibetan children threatened with expulsion from school and Tibetans banned from hospital  services.Details Here

A vicious martial law has been imposed, the area effectively a prison with a prison and all because Tibetans declined to honor the Chinese flag and respect the so-called Motherland, an action Mayor Gilmore of Alameda was seemingly all too happy to endorse. Meanwhile we understand from our friends over on Twitter that Anonymous have today launched an action against another Chinese government website, the hacktivists have disabled the Chinese regime’s Nagchu website. As this post was written www.naqu.gov.cn was offline. Many thanks to @anonyzmeduza for the heads-up on this.

Are There Reds Under The Bed At Alameda City Hall?

Extract From Alameda City Website

Thanks to the wonderful support and activism of our friends and subscribers, who took time out to contact the Mayor of Alameda in protest at the planned raising in that city of China’s flag on October 1 we were interested to note that yesterday a response was issued by¬† Alexander Nguyen the Assistant City Manager. In his email Alex was very clear in claiming that the event was “not a formal City Hall event” and that it was “sponsored by our local Sister City Association….,”. So no connection then with the city authorities? Well the same day this claim was made, at 7.pm during a meeting of Alemada’s Social Service Human Relations Board, a Mr Robles Wong was appointed as a representative of City Hall to guess which body? You got it the Sister City Association! The very organization which Mr Nguyen was at pains to assert was sponsoring the ‘private’ flag raising event. Hmmm!

The fingerprints of Alameda’s civic authority seem to be all over this, and its fair to consider that they have influence and input, meanwhile we notice that Mayor Gilmore has thus far declined to issue a statement making clear that she nor her Council colleagues support flying China’s flag in the city, an act of appeasement that endorses China’s regime. Well Ms Mayor??????

Sincerely,
