Appeasing China, News Item, Tibet

Special Meeting Vows To Continue With Failed Policy That Betrays Tibetan Struggle

As predicted in the previous post the ‘Special Meeting Of Tibetans’, convened recently by the body formerly known as the Exiled Tibetan Government, in Dharamsala, Northern India revealed itself as little more than a public exercise to endorse the long failed strategy of appeasement towards China’s Regime. In essence this seeks so-called meaningful autonomy, with Tibetans left under the tender mercies of China’s national and regional laws, in effect it would see Tibetans submitting to China’s claims that Tibet is part of China, and its people just another Chinese national minority. Anyone who has doubts on this should make a big pot of coffee and devote an hour to read carefully theĀ Memorandum On Meaningful Autonomy For Tibetans a document which surrenders Tibet’s nationhood and is the suicidal basis of Tibetan negotiations with China’s authorities.

Yet, within the 31 recommendations agreed by the meeting was, naturally, a resounding approval to continue with a policy, which the Dalai Lama himself conceded has proved a singular failure

“The meeting resolved to pursue the Middle-Way policy to find a meaningful solution through dialogue with the Chinese government as per the past resolutions adopted by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile and wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.” Source

Once again the struggle of Tibetans in occupied Tibet, who so bravely resist China’s tyranny to demand their nation’s independence, has been entirely ignored and marginalized by a cabal which draping itself in Tibet’s national flag, in truth has exchanged courage and determination with compromise and capitulation.
