New York’s March 10 Tibet Rally Needs Genuine Autonomy!

Later this year a new executive is set to be installed in the offices of Regional Tibetan Youth Congress (New York & New Jersey) and the Tibetan Community of New York and New Jersey is also to renew it’s staff members. For those Tibetans who are in solidarity with their brothers and sisters inside occupied Tibet these developments may bring about a much needed change in the direction and agenda of Tibetan political activism within New York. A proper debate and the opportunity to elect independently minded representatives, dedicated to the same goal of national freedom as their compatriots in Tibet, may mean an end to the promotion of an officially approved agenda that has blighted the March 10 rally.  There are many local Tibetans who work tirelessly for Tibet’s just cause, even more attend events to raise Tibet’s national flag and demand freedom for their country. It is time that their aspirations were respected and given due prominence by organizers of political events. Hopefully the forthcoming changes within RTYC (NYNJ) and Tibetan Community (NYNJ) will mean that next year’s March 10 rally shall offer a more united and forceful message. One in tune with the heartbeat of Tibetans in Tibet.

Despite his failures in Tibet, Xi Jinping will be officially welcomed to the White House in Washington DC by President Obama in late September. And that is why Xi Jinping needs to hear our calls for freedom in Tibet loud and clear!

Save the date and join the protest on the ground in Washington on Sept. 25th. Let’s tell the man behind the crackdown against Tibetans in Tibet that he will be held accountable for his atrocities – that wherever he goes, his shame will follow him.

When Xi Jinping became China’s new leader in 2012, the world had high hopes that he would be a reformer. But, instead, under Xi Jinping’s rule, the brutal crackdown in Tibet has intensified and Tibetans in Tibet are living in a climate of fear and terror.

China is bullying world governments into avoiding to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Together we have to ensure that Xi Jinping does not deserve a grand welcome in DC, when he meets President Obama at the end of September.

Right now, Tibetans in Tibet are risking everything to call for freedom in Tibet. We have a prime opportunity to amplify their message and force Xi Jinping to hear their calls. Join us in showing up in full force outside the White House when Xi Jinping visits.

Let’s take inspiration from Tibetans in Tibet and call directly on Xi Jinping to end the brutal occupation in Tibet. Save the date

Paris Rally To Stand For The Surrender of Tibetan National Identity

Info-graphic by @tibettruth

Paris, France on March 14 is to host an event titled ‘Europe Stands With Tibet’ sounds like a gathering that’s in solidarity with the Tibetan people, right? Wrong! This rally should be more correctly termed ‘A Platform To Promote The Surrender Of Tibet’s Right To Nationhood’ Why so? Well take into account that its been organized and promoted by the Central Tibetan Administration and will feature as main speaker Doctor Lobsang Sangay who will be peddling his message of autonomy under Chinese rule, in the hope of appeasing China.

As with recent Tibetan demonstrations in New York and Dharamsala it is likely that the issue of Tibetan independence will not be welcome, at what we understand is to be tightly restricted and orchestrated meeting. Tibetan communities are being bused across Europe to attend and ensure that this propaganda theater has a compliant and obedient audience. No doubt Tibetan flags will be tolerated but that will be a distraction, the central message will be that ‘We are only seeking genuine autonomy’ a condition if ever realized under the brutal oppression of the Chinese regime will not be allowing any degree of Tibetan national identity and certainly will arrest, torture and shoot anyone who dares to raise Tibet’s national banner.

Don’t be mislead either should you read of or hear the cynical use of the term ‘freedom’ by the Harvard trained lawyer. While it sounds suggestive of independence it’s used by Lobsang Sangay as it may exist under the various forms of ‘autonomy’, for anyone who doubts such an assessment we refer you to an interview Video Here  in which he made clear that his proposals on resolving the issue of Tibet ruled out the prospect of democratic rights for Tibetans in Tibet!

This is an individual who while cloaking himself in the Tibetan flag and delivering carefully scripted rhetoric designed to appeal to and manipulate the exiled Tibetan community, is opposed to Tibetan independence and has willfully ignored the demands and political aspirations of Tibetans inside occupied Tibet.

If anyone reading this truly wishes to stand with the Tibetan people they will not be doing so by attending this event in Paris, better to show your solidarity with the peaceful resistance being waged by Tibetans in Tibet, join and get active with those organizations who clearly state an objective of national liberation and independence for Tibet.
