Sonam Tso Self-Immolated Against Chinese Rule In Tibet
The woman, named as Sonam Tso and said to be aged about 50 years reportedly self-immolated earlier today in Ngaba, Amdo region of Tibet.
Anonymous activists supporting Tibet have had a busy week. Twitter threads were hot with reports of a major attack, in which the server of a Chinese government website, that covers the area of Yushul in eastern Tibet’s Kham region, was hacked. Resulting in the site being taken offline. The action according to news issued via @AnonymousTibet was taken by a hacking collective called #teamriddler in support for ‘Operation Tibet’, which has been targeting official Chinese sites for the past two years. Today an updated video statement on this latest action was released onto Youtube.
A Tibetan, named in a Dossier Tibet report as Sangyal Khar died on December 16 after self-immolating in protest at China’s illegal and violent occupation of Tibet. His action took place outside a police station of China’s occupying regime in Amchok, in Tibet’s eastern region of Amdo. According to the latest information the Chinese authorities have confiscated the body and refused to return the remains to Sangyal’s family!

Nelson Mandela was throughout his life exposed to the cynical vapors of politics, felt keenly within internal struggles, that occasionally struck the movement to overthrow Apartheid, or via the political necessities of government. His years as an activist, resistance fighter and eventually President made him acutely aware of expediency, corruption, sacrifice and economic and political pressures that necessitate a governing authority to abandon principle in favor of national interest. Such factors play a key role in foreign policy and South Africa’s elite cabal have identified central areas of advantage and like other States are engaged in an active appeasement of China’s regime, in the name of commerce and positive relations.
China’s Vice President Li Yuanchao was afforded a central and prominent position at the memorial for Nelson Mandela, along with world leaders whose governments once branded him as a terrorist, such hypocrisy and political posturing would probably have raised a wry smile on Mr, Mandela’s face. There was no such honor extended to the Tibetan leader, who was barred from attending, and once again South Africa’s government has banned the Dalai Lama, from participating at a Nobel Laureates meeting.
Denied visas on previous occasions by South Africa, notably to attend Desmond Tutu’s 80th birthday celebrations in 2011, the Dalai Lama is not welcome and the suited leaders of the Rainbow Nation have it seems forgotten their own history of oppression and denial of human rights. Interesting how the allure of trade with China’s regime induces such amnesia! It is a disgraceful action that highlights the odious nature of real-politic in which those whose currency is tyranny, exploitation and violence are honored while the truly principled and compassionate are rejected. Shame upon South Africa’s government!
China’s regime announced today the appointment of Mr. Losang Gyaltsen aged fifty five, as it’s latest colonialist governor tasked with heading ongoing oppression of Tibetans, in the so-called Tibet Autonomous (sic) Region. Which western media wrongly describe as ‘Tibet’, in truth it comprises around a third only of historic, geographical and cultural Tibet. His promotion and job description is straight out of the collaborator’s handbook and like Norway’s infamous traitor, Vidkun Quisling who loyally served Nazi Germany this Tibetan deserves the condemnation and contempt of all who value human rights, justice and national freedom.
