Our Twitter team received a report today from @AnonymousTibet that an English psychologist, Susan Mitchie; a key advisor to the British Government on manipulating and influencing public behavior, has jointly authored a paper (published by the University College London) which advocates children being injected, with what in truth is an unlicensed and experimental genetically modified product. The mid and long term health impacts of these drugs are unknown, while the worrying numbers of adverse health damage, and fatalities following current injections is being ignored and unexamined by governments, public health bodies and media.
None of this seems to bother Ms Mitchie, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party and admirer of the Chinese Regime.
As subscribers, readers and friends of our digital activism will have noticed, our reportage on Tibet has been lacking during the past months. We wanted to reach-out and lay bare the reasons for that absence. Firstly, there’s an increasing challenge in securing information on the situation inside occupied Tibet as the Chinese regime intensifies its suffocation of Tibetan culture. The borders are sealed. What goes down is concealed and suppressed by a digital tyranny, every movement and daily activity is monitored, assessed and recorded. It is mass-surveillance and subjugation; of a nature and scale, which even Orwell’s nightmares could not have imagined.
Then, we have the reality of a world changed. Damaged beyond recognition in less than two years, by governments implementing policies which have torn-up democratic practice and respect for individual rights. This plunge into totalitarianism employed a justification, long used by the tyrant, that the curtailment of freedoms is for the ‘good-of-the-nation.’. Of course to steer a people into quiet obedience requires an extremely powerful force. Nothing can paralyze a mind with greater efficiency, than ‘fear’. To that end citizens across the globe have been subject to a relentless program of psychological manipulation that has terrorized and traumatized. Being kept in a condition of dread and confusion, by precisely engineered messaging, has produced a frightening measure of compliance.
So it is, that our society is degraded and fractured, while rights once cherished and defended are replaced by an orthodoxy which elevates the edict of the state to a position of unquestioned authority. Dissent is met with derision, slander, and censorship. Police and security forces are given additional powers, draconian legislation is rushed into existence, all implemented to produce conformity. There’s no critical or independent media challenging the strangulation of democracy and human rights. Indeed, journalism has become a willing conduit for the propaganda narrative, an enthusiastic delivery-boy of fear.
These oppressive measures, constructed patriotism, state-control, censorship have worrying similarities with the default governance of the Chinese regime. There are darker parallels. Since the reported emergence of this flu-variant virus digital technology has been employed by governments as a form of identity card. Under the claim of monitoring infection spread, invasive apps enable a person’s movement to be directly tracked. Cell phones have been occupied by your authorities, it is you which is being surveyed.
In an echo of Pavlov’s experiments you’re groomed to respond to the latest ping alert from a public health body, it is behavioral control and reinforcement. More than that, in serving as a certification of injection it’s part of a process that creates division and suspicion, bringing into being a corrosive social virus of ‘them and us’. Will such technology, as it is in China, soon be used to record, assess and reward approved social behaviors? A model-citizen on the end of a virtual leash!
The activism on Tibet provided by our network is volunteered by people in differing locations and cultures. Yet since the start of 2020 there’s, without doubt, been a commonality of experience within those respective places; which has witnessed the disintegration of civil liberties and rise of government control. It is increasingly observable that democracy and human rights are in retreat.
Such is the nature of these troubling circumstances, and potentially catastrophic impacts for fellow citizens, that we decided to dial-down our focus on Tibet. We’re still reporting across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook but less frequently. While this platform is committed to bringing Tibet linked news, as and when required, resources and attention so generously donated by our team is directed towards a human rights struggle which is now urgently demanded within our own communities.
The world’s insatiable appetite for PPE as a stated precaution against infection from viruses has lead to a range of issues, not least the environmental impact of untold numbers of discarded masks. The panic (or calculation) of governments to shroud their health-workers and general citizenry in masks, gowns and gloves has also made a number of businesses very, very rich. Including some based in China (where as the world knows very well, employment and human rights are non-existent).

But those realities have not prevented countries such as the United Kingdom from engaging in a number of shadowy deals to procure medical equipment, that often times has proved to be dangerously ineffective and required withdrawal, so much for cautious management of public expenditure! We see a report today from, ‘The New European’ (an English online journal) that the British have paid the equivalent of $125 million to a Chinese corporation that uses a hotel room in downtown Beijing as its offices!
The Beijing Union Glory Investment Company, like many such corporations operates closely with, and no doubt invested by the Chinese regime. An authority that inflicts genocidal policies against the Tibetan and Uyghur peoples. Such however is the crazed momentum for PPE the British Department for Health (with the knowledge and support of England’s version of the State Department) ignored entirely the harrowing misery suffered across Tibet and East Turkistan. Yet in only January this year the British Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Dominic Raab announced in Parliament that UK companies would face fines if they could not show that their products or supply chains were free from any association with forced labor in so-called Xinjiang.

It is, of course, a matter of fact that the region is a huge producer of cotton and it has become increasingly apparent and well documented that slave-labor is used in that production.Which returns us to the subject of medical protective clothing and equipment. Did the British not realize that a major component used in the manufacturing of such products is cotton? Surely either Matt Hancock or Dominic Raab stop to consider where the source of a government backed Chinese company would source their materials from when producing PPE items? Maybe they asked the Chinese where the cotton used in such items was from? If so they would take credulity to a whole new level if believing any refutation that the cotton content was not from the very region cited by the UK authorities for housing forced-labor camps!
We hope any of our UK friends and readers will seek a freedom-of-information disclose from the British ministries of health and foreign affairs on this issue. As it stands the government in Britain looks to be in violation of its own foreign and trading policies with respect to the importation of goods linked to forced labor. Is this how the British seek to tackle human rights abuses in so-called Xinjiang?
Of course in truth it doesn’t give a damn about the condition of Uyghurs enslaved and exploited to produce and process cotton, most likely a core component of the PPE bought by the UK government. Nor is it troubled that its people will be wearing equipment made in the traumatizing misery of China’s concentration camps.

Of course Secretary Blinken did not appear Feb 12 with the Tibetan national flag, either behind him or upon his lapel. He followed a long line of Secretary’s of State by avoiding any reference to the notion of Tibet as a nation, either through displaying emblems or via his carefully scripted New Year greeting. While many Tibetans are encouraged that he offered up solidarity on Tibetan culture, language and religion, it should never be forgotten that since Nixon reached an accord with Mao Tse Tung in 1972 successive administrations, be they Republican or Democrat, have recognized the bogus claim, and affirmed, that Tibet is part of China. This been the central policy of the State Department for decades, encouraged and shaped by a powerful coalition of corporate interests, whose prime goal is maintaining and expanding financial ties with China.
Recent declarations signed by outgoing President Trump supporting the Tibetan tradition of selecting the Dalai Lama and demanding non-interference in that process have no doubt offered comfort and encouragement within the exiled Tibetan community. Political solidarity however has its shelf-life, and changes or is abandoned according to events of economics and politics.
With that in mind, as China’s regime is covertly engineering a plastic figure to propose as the rightful next Dalai Lama, we wonder what response will be forthcoming from future US Administrations and the State Department when faced with the following inevitability.
Having carefully constructed its bogus Dalai Lama every effort will be made to exploit this creation for political and propaganda purposes. For example we envisage the plastic figure will be sent on global tours spreading its message of ‘harmony’ and ‘good will’. A key destination for such orchestrated deception will of course be the USA.
So what will the reaction be from US authorities to a request from the Chinese regime that every diplomatic courtesy and support is extended to its plastic representative? Would the Secretary of State decline a meeting with this polymer puppet and declare support and recognition only to that Dalai Lama chosen by exiled Tibetans in accord with genuine tradition?
Or would the ever-present pressure of trade with China reassert itself? These are sobering questions that need to be raised as a reality-check against the integrity and motives of a US political establishment. Which since 1972 has betrayed the just cause of Tibet’s people for national freedom.
The Chinese regime declared August 24 2020 that during the year “Tibet helps 543,000 farmers, herdsmen find jobs”. See print-screen below
Let’s disentangle the euphemisms and distortions at work in that wording to reveal the facts behind the claim.
Firstly the ‘Tibet’ mentioned is not all of the traditional lands that comprise the country. It refers to a truncated region of Tibet, renamed following the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet as the so-called ‘Tibet Autonomous Region’.
Regarding the phrase ‘helps’ in reality this is a euphemism for coercing, as the Tibetans supposedly ‘helped’ had no choice. It was a dictate at the end of machine guns!
As to the ‘farmers’ and ‘herdsmen’ these are mostly Tibetan nomads who were rounded up, their animals confiscated and given to Chinese meat companies and animal by-product manufacturers. They were, like their farming compatriots, forced onto convoys of buses and placed into concrete concentration settlements or camps such as the one above.

Lastly we come to the mention of ‘jobs’, not as understood in democratic societies, this is slave-labor and political indoctrination in the most wretched of conditions. Tibetans exploited to a merciless degree, prisoners with no hope of release.
These are the cold truths behind the eye-catching headline of China’s regime. In that context our title for this post is neither a betrayal of accuracy, or exaggeration.
Slave-labor has long been a go-to component of the Chinese regime’s oppressive tool box. Having inflicted millions of deaths since the rise of the communist party of China it continues to destroy lives.
It’s become increasingly used in occupied East Turkistan and indeed Tibet. With growing international concern that products sold around the world are manufactured at such places of misery and abuse.
Such anxieties are of no importance to China’s tyrannical authorities who continue with mass-arrests and deportations of Uyghurs and Tibetans in bondage to Chinese run companies and government backed projects.
Anonymous activists at ‘Operation Tibet‘ issued August 22, 220 a video statement calling for action on Save The Children due to that organization’s continued silence concerning China’s mass abuse of Uyghur children. Many thanks to @AnonymousTibet for sharing news on this.
