It’s difficult to grasp the degree of terror, suffering and oppression which Tibetans have endured since China invaded Tibet in 1950. The instances of torture, loss and personal tragedy are of a magnitude that can be found in descriptions of genocide or prolonged war. there have been countless examples of Tibetans who when faced with China’s vicious tyranny have bravely resisted, sacrificed their lives to demand Tibet’s national freedom and to protest against the persecution and erosion of Tibetan Buddhism. All such accounts are deeply moving, demand answers of governments and the United Nations who have offered self-serving platitudes while appeasing the Chinese regime.
A report just released today, via Radio Free Asia, documents another such case, this time a Tibetan nun, named as Rinzin Dolma, who lived at the Larung Gar Buddhist Academy, in Serthar County, Kham region of eastern Tibet who hung herself in protest at the forced demolition of Tibet’s largest Buddhist center by the Chinese regime
“Rinzin Dolma, a nun of Larung gar Buddhist center hanged herself to death when Chinese began demolition at the center on July 20, 2016.”according to RFA’s Facebook page.
The global religious and political community has remained virtually silent as this major seat of Buddhist learning is bulldozed into oblivion by the Chinese paramilitary, a silence that speaks volumes of their merciless in difference to the plight of Tibet and its culture!
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.
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!
An earlier report has now been confirmed of another self-immolation by a Tibetan protesting China’s illegal and violent occupation of Tibet.
“Phagmo Samdrub, 29, set himself ablaze at around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday near the Panchen Day School in Dokarmo township in Tsekhog county.Samdrub had been taken away by Chinese authorities.By the early hours of Thursday, Chinese forces had tightened security in Tsekhog and nearby Rebgong county, the scene of several earlier self-immolation protests.Communication channels have been restricted in areas around Tsekhog and no further details are available.”
Less than twenty-fours hours after City officials of Alameda were hiding under their desks to avoid the controversy generated by plans to praise China’s regime by hoisting the Chinese flag, and issuing statements about honoring the people of China, some 7400 miles to the west of California Tibetans in Driru; situated in part of Tibet’s eastern region of Kham, were also troubled by thoughts of China’s flag. They have every reason to be as squadrons of jackbooted Chinese paramilitary had been dispatched to the area, along with motor-mouthed communist part officials. Their task, to ensure that the Tibetans displayed above their homes and monastery China’s flag. Unlike the well-suited members of Alameda’s City Hall who chose silence and evasion when pressed to commit themselves to opposing honoring the Chinese regime, Tibetans in that area, despite being acutely aware of the genuine dangers of resisting took a courageous stand and refused demands to fly the Chinese emblem.
The result was inevitable, with China sending a reported 18000 extra troops to enforce the dictate issued by the Chinese authorities, the town is now under lock-down, schools have been shut-down, Tibetans arrested, amid a barrage of other punishments, including Tibetan children threatened with expulsion from school and Tibetans banned from hospital services.Details Here
A vicious martial law has been imposed, the area effectively a prison with a prison and all because Tibetans declined to honor the Chinese flag and respect the so-called Motherland, an action Mayor Gilmore of Alameda was seemingly all too happy to endorse. Meanwhile we understand from our friends over on Twitter that Anonymous have today launched an action against another Chinese government website, the hacktivists have disabled the Chinese regime’s Nagchu website. As this post was written www.naqu.gov.cn was offline. Many thanks to @anonyzmeduza for the heads-up on this.
