A serial abuser is holding a woman hostage, having raped and beaten her into disfigurement. He then releases a statement to the cops that under his care she is making a recovery. Crazy right?

To most folks of normal intelligence and integrity sure, but then as we know the Chinese regime seriously fails that standard!

It declared today, via its official mouthpiece the Peoples Daily that forest ‘recovery rates’ in Tibet have risen by over 12%, now there’s a development that requires closer scrutiny! Having reduced vast areas of Tibet’s once verdant forested valleys to a lunar-like landscape (an ecocide that continues) we are now supposed to applaud this cynical public relations announcement.

Natural forests which have developed over thousands of years within the environment are cut-down for profit, the land left bare to add to erosion and flooding hazards. In some extremely limited cases they are replaced with low-quality, mono-culture plantations, which is what lies behind this announcement today. Such replanting has to be measured against what has been lost, the incredible species diversity, ecology, wildlife and vital role in flood prevention.

Tibet’s Nomads Have No Choice But To Agree To Be ‘Relocated’

Imagine for a moment you’ve been transported back to 1944 and you spot a headline in the newspaper that reads ‘Gypsies give support to relocation plan’. On further reading you notice a quote from a Nationalist Socialist Party official stating that: ‘The policy is entirely voluntary and no force is used in relocating Gypsies to the constructed settlements’. No doubt you would be feeling a real dissonance at that point.¬† After all it’s been established¬† those deemed by the Nazi State as ‘undesirable’ have been forced from their homes at the point of a gun. Failure to comply means torture, forced-labor or being shot!

Back in 2019 and the headline “Tibet nomads give support to relocation plan'” published January 22 by the China Daily, propaganda mouthpiece of the Chinese regime. Under the patently false claims of respecting the Tibetan environment (“We would rather slow down or give up our economic development than harm nature. This is important to ensure that future generations can also see the green mountains and pure rivers”. Mr Zhang Jianhua Chinese colonial official”) the ‘transfer’ of Tibetan nomads is justified as part of a process of environmental protection.

Let’s have a reality breakdown on this engineered deception. Firstly, the Chinese authorities claiming to protect Tibet’s environment is like a serial sex offender insisting he fully respects women’s rights! Folk across the digital world know too well that the rivers, mountains and grasslands of occupied Tibet are being polluted and seriously damaged by Chinese mining corporations, approved by China’s government. Removing Tibetans from resource rich lands is a key aspect of a greed-driven agenda’.

Lastly it’s important to be aware that the Chinese tyranny employs a wide range of euphemisms to conceal the dark reality of its illegal occupation and exploitation of Tibet. Take the innocuous sounding ‘relocation’, could be describing a wished for movement to another place, right? Look a little closer and the phrase is nothing more than code for the forced removal of Tibetans into concentration settlements. As we reported previously one of the key aims of China’s regime is to eradicate Tibetan national and cultural identity, the two central pillars of that character is Tibet’s nomadic traditions and its Buddhist and native religions. By a program of of ‘ethnic-cleansing’ Tibetans are denied their self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle as nomads, bused into ‘socialist paradise villages’ to become dependent and compliant. Such is the harrowing truth behind China’s cynical use of the inoffensive term ‘relocation’!

Tibetans In Kham Region Protest Chinese Mining Corporation Poisoning A Local River

Cell phone footage of Tibetans protesting against pollution of a river near Lhagang in Kham region of occupied Tibet, increased mining by Chinese companies is having a disastrous effect upon the Tibetan environment.

Within Tibetan culture fish are considered sacred and so the poisoning of this water and the death of so many fish causes anguish, as can be heard from the protestors.

This footage was uploaded across a number of social sites by Tibetans and also featured May 6 by Voice Of America. Unfortunately VOA reports repeat and endorse Chinese propaganda claims regarding Tibetan territory and so are misleading those who know little of Tibet.
