Tibet Is Being Tortured!

Through popular culture and news reports there’s an image burned into our consciousness that generally conceives torture as being inflicted upon an individual. The plight of a prisoner-of-conscience or innocent protestor abused in the cell has become firmly established. Tibetans know very well that harrowing experience at the hands of the Chinese regime.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The torment suffered inside occupied Tibet is not however restricted to a room in a forced labor-camp or Chinese security center. Nor is the abuse directed only at individuals and not contained to the crude horrors of physical persecution. Any tool of oppression that’s calculated and implemented to instill fear, confusion and compliance may be justly considered torture.

In that context it’s important to understand that the violations imposed upon Tibetans are not contained behind the walls of a prison. Equally it should not be thought that, beyond the detention centers and indoctrination camps, Tibetans are free from tyranny. The systemic oppression and misery forced upon Tibet also has a psychological component. There’s no doubt the emotional and mental impact of decades of Chinese occupation, and the unrelenting assault upon Tibetan cultural and national identity, has inflicted trauma, anxiety and depression on a massive scale.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The witnessing of Tibetan culture being bulldozed towards oblivion, forced relocations into concentration camps and exploitation as forced-labor have left Tibet’s sense of itself in shreds. What has happened to the Tibetan people, forever scarred by such a cultural genocide and engineered terrorism? With no escape from the 24/7 cult of China’s communist party and its glorious leader, Xi Jinping what choices are there?

Resistance is of course fraught with dark and grim consequences for the dissenter and their family. Compliance is for many the only way to survive. But there’s a price to pay for that also. The daily indoctrination sessions, public propaganda events, all under the un-sleeping eye of mass-surveillance and the ever present dangers of informers. There’s a mental and emotional cost for compliance, as it involves the breakdown of personal and cultural identity.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The societal and personal values which sprang from Tibet’s Buddhist culture are replaced by a fanaticism, and delusion. Individuality is rejected, there’s only subservience to the Chinese authorities and its political ideologies. The nature and extent of control which China has over Tibetans is staggering, not a single aspect of daily life is free from the intrusion of the occupying regime.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

It is no exaggeration to say that Tibet itself is being tortured, and will be released from such anguish only when it regains its just national freedom. Otherwise the suffering will continue until the last remnant of Tibetan identity is destroyed.

China Admits Incarcerating Over Half A Million Tibetans As Slave-Labor

China Admits Incarcerating Over Half A Million Tibetans As Slave-Labor

Image: researched and produced by @tibettruth

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.

A Spiritual Silence On China’s Genocidal Regime

The following religious leaders are utterly silent on China’s genocidal persecution of Tibetans in occupied Tibet and Uyghurs in occupied east Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang region)

Regarded by some as the highest authority in Sunni Islamic thinking, the present incumbent, Ahmad al-Tayyeb has offered no words of concern or opposition on China’s genocidal assault against his Uyghur Muslim brothers and sisters.

Mr Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev like his political colleagues within the Kremlin is completely silent on the odious excesses of the Chinese regime and has not spoken a word of concern on the terrorism being inflicted upon the Uyghurs.

His church cut a secret deal with the Chinese regime in a what has proved to be a failed effort to protect Catholics in China. That arrangement required from the Vatican silence on issues such as the plight of Tibetans and Uyghurs.

Martin Fair, like his predecessors refuses to comment on China’s vicious oppression of the Uyghurs, or indeed offer any concern on the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh offering a fellowship to Professor Jiang Hiefu. An individual with close links to China’s forced-organ removal atrocities.

There’s numerous reasons for the ghastly silence of these supposedly compassionate and spiritual figures, in essence though their refusal to speak out against China is a result of political and economic forces. Be that a shared political ideology with China’s regime, trade considerations; or in the case of the Vatican naive and misguided collaboration, the result is complicity.

There’s Only One Party In Tibet And That’s Not For The Dalai Lama’s Birthday!

There's Only One Party In Tibet And That's Not For The Dalai Lama's Birthday!

Original Image: thestar

Tibetans and friends of Tibet are today celebrating the birthday of the Dalai Lama. Yet several million Tibetans will not be.  This is because to do so will risk extreme punishment by the Chinese regime. who have ordered the the people of occupied Tibet to reject their beloved Buddhist leader in favor of Xi Jinping.

Any expression whatsoever supporting, respecting or celebrating the Tibetan leader is treated as criminal activity. The consequences are severe and dangerous. There is only one party to honor and that is the Communist Party of China.

Tibet’s Phone Users Under 24/7 Surveillance

Tibet's Phone Users Under 24/7 Surveillance

Image: @tibettruth/chogo

Couple of days back the Chinese regime trumpeted that phone usage in Tibet had increased to nearly 4 million.

Of course that would be worthy of celebration if such claimed increase came with attendant progress in human rights, religious freedom and respect for Tibet’s cultural traditions.

However far from indicating such improvements (or ideas of economic progress and social modernity, which is what China’s authorities seek to plant in your mind) for Tibetans, the expansion of cell phone networks and personal use is yet another component of the suffocating control over Tibet.

All networks are authorized and monitored by the regime, as is internet and phone use, while the roll-out of 5G across Tibet enables mass surveillance technology. No phone call inside occupied Tibet is safe!

Tibetan Collaborators Aiding The Destruction of Tibet

Tibetan Collaborators Aiding The Destruction of Tibet

Image; @tibettruth

If Tibetans inside occupied Tibet were allowed, under international monitoring, to determine the future status of their country do you think they’d vote for a continuation of Chinese rule?

The subject of building what has been laughingly described as Striving to be a Model of National Unity Together and Building a Beautiful and Happy Tibet was today the topic of a meeting organized by the Chinese regime and attended by  politically indoctrinated Tibetans.

These are individuals who join the communist Chinese party to gain financial and employment security, others are ideologues, while younger ‘delegates’ have been completely brainwashed.

Tibetan Collaborators Aiding The Destruction of Tibet

It is of course impossible for the people of occupied Tibet not to be exposed to the daily flood of Chinese disinformation, political slogans are on virtually every street, television broadcasts and the internet are dominated by official propaganda. Towns and villages are targeted with staged public events in praise of Xi Jinping. While as we have reported previously Tibetan children are being  denied their cultural identity and heritage and groomed into loyal Chinese speaking citizens.

Yet whatever the reasons for becoming a collaborator those Tibetans approving and implementing the latest edicts on Tibet from China’s regime, far from building a contented and thriving Tibetan society, are assisting in the oppression and elimination of Tibet’s cultural and national identity.

Tibetan Town Placed Under Paramilitary Occupation For Unauthorized Internet Use

In a land already suffocating under the terrorism imposed by the Chinese regime Tibetans continue to be targeted, criminalized, abused and viciously oppressed. Reports emerged today of Chinese paramilitary on the streets of Dza Wonpo, a town in occupied Tibet’s Kham region during  late 2019. That the information has surfaced now is due to the  complete lock-down forced upon Tibetans, daily activities are constantly monitored and recorded, informers are ever present, while the internet is under 24/7 surveillance by the Chinese authorities.

Tibetan Town Placed Under Paramilitary Occupation For Unauthorized Internet Use

Image: made possible by courageous Tibetans inside Tibet

Under such circumstances it is remarkable that these images and report has been made available, due entirely to very courageous Tibetans from inside Tibet. From their information over thirty Tibetans were arrested and held between November 21 and December 12 2019, with a further eight people detained. Their ‘crimes’ it appears were being suspected of using the internet to contact exiled Tibetans, and possessing images of the Dalai Lama.

The response from the Chinese regime was typical, dispatching a massive convoy of ‘security’ vehicle and flooding the town with paramilitary troops. Such is the reality for Tibetans existing under the illegal and brutal rule of China.

December 23 2019 The Chinese regime forcibly removed nearly three thousand Tibetan herders from their traditional lands in Nagchu region of U Tsang, occupied Tibet.

Tibetans were rounded up and forced onto a number of convoys which headed off to Gongkar in the South of Tibet.The traditional Tibetan nomadic culture has been targeted for eradication, Tibetans who enjoyed the independence of living across Tibet’s grasslands and mountain valleys are promised a dream life of prosperity in ‘socialist paradise villages’.

What they get is a miserable existence in a concrete concentration camp, where they are entirely dependent upon their Chinese oppressors for fuel, food and power supplies.

The Big-Brother Command Center Which Coordinates Tyranny Over Tibet

Image: @tibettruth

Having placed Tibet under a suffocating military occupation since invading in 1950, with every village and town swarming with Chinese paramilitary, China’s regime has more recently completed its totalitarian grip on the Tibetan people through the implementation of CCTV surveillance, bio-metric identity cards and facial recognition systems. This high-tech tyranny has been rolled out across occupied Tibet ensuring instant monitoring and assessment of almost every aspect of daily activity, Tibetans are existing under a digital terrorism. One that has the objective of eradicating Tibetan national and cultural identity.

The Big-Brother Command Center Which Coordinates Tyranny Over Tibet

Image: @tibettruth

The Chinese regime is central to the administration, funding and expansion of this oppressive and intrusive system. To ensure ideological compliance and coordination of its cultural genocide against Tibetans it has launched a ‘Big Brother’ command center that links to operation rooms in various regions of Tibet. Titled the ‘National Security Command of the Tibet Autonomous Region (sic)’ this week it held an online conference session to “Fully promote the implementation of various stability maintenance measures in place, resolutely win and complete the “final war” of stability maintenance at the end of the year”.  The latest dictates issued to its communist party zealots for implementation against the Tibetan people.

We thank our Twitter team for their resourceful work in securing these images,

China Unleashes Another Brainwashing Program Across Kongpo Region Of Tibet

China Unleashes Another Brainwashing Program Across Kongpo Region Of Tibet

Image: @tibettruth

Kongpo is a region of occupied Tibet, renamed as so-called Nyingchi by the Chinese regime. It lies in the southern eastern area of Tibet next to Kham and bordering to the south the neighboring countries of India and Myanmar. A land of waterfalls, lakes, steep river valleys and rich forests, although much of that has been plundered by Chinese logging companies.

China Unleashes Another Brainwashing Program Across Kongpo Region Of Tibet

Image: @tibettruth

It is home to sacred mountains and ancient traditions. Including the native Tibetan religion, Bon. Then the Chinese invaded in 1950 and now the culture and environment of Kongpo has been ruthlessly oppressed and exploited, it is not tradition, Buddhist or Bon philosophy that Tibetans enjoy, those rights have been removed, but an enforced loyalty to the communist Chinese party ideology and its dictator Xi Jinping.  Every town and village is subject to regular indoctrination events, attendance is of course obligatory, failure to show public support and loyalty receives a range of penalties including fines, detention, torture or forced labor.
