Another day in occupied Tibet as the Chinese regime rolls-out the latest propaganda drive to induce loyalty towards the dictator Xi Jinping. Central to this indoctrination program are those Tibetans who have chosen to collaborate with and endorse the extreme and oppressive ideology of China’s communist party.

After publicly demonstrating their support for the tyranny which is oppressing Tibet and its people these loyal Tibetan stooges sit through hours of study, soaking up the enlightened political wisdom of their glorious dictator.

The medium of communication for these brainwashing sessions is Chinese, we wonder what trace of Tibetan cultural or national identity (if any) exists within these collaborators.

The loyalty of those Tibetans actively supporting the Chinese regime is rewarded with a certain political and local status, fringe benefits on housing and travel within occupied Tibet and a regular salary. Yet their dedication and obedience to the foreign occupier who so brutally suppresses Tibetan culture and identity is ultimately not trusted, and valued only for the furtherance of the violent policies and dogma represented by Xi Jinping. These sad and treacherous Tibetans are no more than disposable puppets, whose position of security is utterly dependent on their submission and fanaticism. In that regard they are the ideological foot-soldiers of China’s oppressive rule in Tibet the regime. In another word, traitors.

Asking Save-The-Children To Speak Out Against China’s Abduction And Harrowing Abuse Of Uyghur Infants

Asking Save The Children To Speak Out Against China's Harrowing Abuse Of Uyghur Infants
On the issue of China’s abduction and abuse of Uyghur children all we’ve had so far from Save The Children is silence

We have today issued an appeal to the organization Save The Children, asking them to speak-out against China’s harrowing abuse of Uyghur children, detained at what are in reality indoctrination centers. The emotional and psychological damage of forced separation from their parents is traumatizing countless numbers of infants across occupied East Turkistan.

This little Uyghur girl was filmed weeping for her mother, completely ignored, no comfort. The executives of Save The Children need to look into her traumatized face and note the anguish, is their silence on this issue acceptable for an organization dedicated to championing children’s rights?

There’s many simple actions to be taken in support of Tibet’s cause for national freedom and human rights, here’s one right here. Don’t use the TikTok app on your device, as the Chinese company is in bed with China’s regime in banning mention of Tibet. Any references are censored, as are subjects such as the 1989 slaughter at Tiananmen Square or ongoing persecution of Uyghurs. Don’t choose the censors, boycott this app and let your friends and family know.

Chinese Regime Intensifies Control Over Tibet’s Reincarnation System

Chinese Regime Intensifies Control Over Tibet's Reincarnation System

The Chinese regime and its Tibetan stooges are currently running a 10 day ‘training program’ in Lhasa, more accurately described as an intense brainwashing exercise targeting senior Buddhist figures from across occupied Tibet. The aim of this event, run by the ‘Institute of Socialism in Tibet’  is to indoctrinate and coerce on the subject of reincarnation, a process which Xi Jinping and his thugs are seeking to control and define.

Take these comments (from a Tibetan collaborator and active member of China’s communist party) issued on Friday 23rd August. Mr Suolang Renzeng, of the so-called ‘TAR United Front Work Department’ cautioned that reincarnation is “never a religious-only issue or a living Buddha’s personal right” going onto insist it being an important representation of the Communist Party of China’s strategies and policies in the region. 

Ever fearful of Tibetan cultural and national identity, particularly the role of the Dalai Lama China’s seeking total control over every aspect of Tibet’s Buddhism. Under this suffocating and dictatorial lockdown only the enlightened wisdom of the Chinese regime has the authority to declare what constitutes a genuinely reincarnated Tibetan Buddhist!

Tibetan Nuns Beaten To A Pulp For Crying During Forced Indoctrination

Tibetan Nuns Beaten To A Pulp For Crying During Forced Indoctrination

This is what happened. Yachen Gar, a major Tibetan Buddhist center, the size of a small town was invaded couple years back by Chinese paramilitary. On the orders of China’s regime the bulldozers moved in, centuries old buildings demolished, thousands of monks and nuns homeless. Rounded up by armed Chinese troops they were forced onto convoys of buses, destination prison camps. Held there under a brutal program of political indoctrination, mental and physical abuse, Tibetans whose daily life was dedicated to following the teachings of Buddhism now are forced to renounce their cultural identity. Failure to comply results in beatings, torture and additional years of detention.

Today we read that Tibetan nuns being held at Jomda near Chamdo in occupied Tibet have been beaten to a pulp by Chinese thugs, their supposed crime? Having each and every day being forced to sing songs in Chinese praising Xi Jinping and China’s communist party, followed by hours watching propaganda films on Chinese military campaigns these Tibetans are in psychological trauma. Some breakdown into tears. It was this response, which was seen as disloyalty and dissent against the glorious Chinese government, that resulted in a number of brutal assaults against these Tibetan women. Left unable to walk, barely conscious and seriously bruised they were removed into isolation cells. Following this attack they were informed their detention would be increased, more endless days of misery and indoctrination.

While these atrocities are being inflicted and China wages cultural genocide against Tibetans the political world shrugs, what kind of world are we inhabiting, in which such atrocities are ignored so as to maintain positive relations with China’s terrorist authorities?

Latvian Academic Peddles China’s Deceptions On Buddhism In Tibet

Latvian Academic Peddles China's Deceptions On Buddhism In Tibet
Tibet academics who play the game with China’s regime are rewarded with research trips, university partnerships, career advancement and published papers

Look right from the get go we’re going to make it plain. We’ve little respect for academics specializing in Tibetan culture and history, who (usually for the purposes of career and research enhancement) collaborate with the Chinese regime. Why? Because there’s always a dangerous compromise on the facts, there has to be. Don’t forget it’s a totalitarian authority which demands compliance to its official narrative on any aspect of Tibet. Unless a scholar signs-off on that there’s no deal, applications for visas are denied, cooperation from Chinese universities and research bodies is not extended. So what do you do? After all you have a passion for your area of study? It would be a real shame not make progress on that project you’ve been considering, right?

So the justification begins, and any concerns on partnering with a regime that you know is brutalizing the Tibetan people and eradicating their cultural and national identity, is rationalized away. With the support and encouragement of intellectual colleagues, the prospect of exotic field trips, and dreams of acclaim for that paper you will now be able to complete and publish, it becomes remarkably easy to ignore the harrowing reality endured by Tibetans. That’s the great thing about being inside the bubble; you are insulated the work becomes everything, while a remnant of concern may remain it’s pushed away into some neglected junkyard of your thinking.

This arm of the Chinese regime is an indoctrination and propaganda center that liaises with foreign academics specializing on Tibet.

The Chinese authorities will prove extremely helpful and generous, facilitating your research in Tibet, such support and cooperation comes with a price! The work you produce has to conform to standards expected and dictated by a number of government bodies including; Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Tibet Academy Of Social Sciences and China Tibetological Research Centre. You will be required to use certain phrases when describing Tibet, its culture, regions, place-names and people, these of course are propaganda constructions to emphasize China’s bogus claims that Tibet is part of China. At first including such terminology in your writing is awkward but that feeling soon passes and it becomes natural, it also ensures your visa gets renewed!

Field trips are arranged, monitored, controlled and carefully selected and approved, you will liaise on a regular basis with a Chinese academic ‘partner’, At a number of sites you will meet with Tibetans, who will no doubt inform you of the great progress being made in occupied Tibet, while addressing the subject of your researches. The monastery you have access to seems thriving, new buildings and unrestricted Buddhist practice, the perfect location for your study!

Chinese paramilitary an ever present tyranny at Tibetan Buddhist monasteries

An experience no doubt encountered by Professor Agita Baltgalve (University of Latvia/Latvian Society for the Study of Religions). On May 8 she was a key speaker at the screening of a propaganda film shown at the Chinese embassy in the capital city of Riga, Latvia. Her comments clearly met the approval of Xinhua, the official mouthpiece of China’s regime, who reported her as saying: ‘..Latvia has seen visits of several Tibetan delegations, now the documentary films provides an opportunity to learn more about the land and people of Tibet by means of cinematography. ‘. Anyone watching a film on Tibet authorised by Xi Jinping’s regime will be educated with disinformation and falsehoods, not that this seems to trouble Ms Baltgave!

She is an active collaborator in endorsing and promoting Chinese propaganda, seemingly content with the engineered illusions presented to her during visits to a handful of selected Tibetan monasteries during 2018. Her report ‘Current Situation of Tibetan Monasteries in China’ (note the title wording) no doubt fails to mention the paramilitary presence at such sites, the asphyxiating control from China’s ideological storm-troopers who dominate and control every aspect of daily life at Tibet’s monasteries. Missing too will be the transformation of once Buddhist centers of study into indoctrination camps, where the political thoughts of Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party are forced upon Tibetans.

We wonder how Ms Baltgave would have responded to news of a documentary film being shown at an embassy of the Soviet Union which portrayed Christianity as thriving in Latvia during the time it was under Soviet occupation? How would she have regarded a western academic’s willing participation in promoting such propaganda? Such ethical considerations appear to be of no importance to Tibet academics who choose to collaborate with the Chinese regime.
