Tibet Is Being Tortured!

Through popular culture and news reports there’s an image burned into our consciousness that generally conceives torture as being inflicted upon an individual. The plight of a prisoner-of-conscience or innocent protestor abused in the cell has become firmly established. Tibetans know very well that harrowing experience at the hands of the Chinese regime.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The torment suffered inside occupied Tibet is not however restricted to a room in a forced labor-camp or Chinese security center. Nor is the abuse directed only at individuals and not contained to the crude horrors of physical persecution. Any tool of oppression that’s calculated and implemented to instill fear, confusion and compliance may be justly considered torture.

In that context it’s important to understand that the violations imposed upon Tibetans are not contained behind the walls of a prison. Equally it should not be thought that, beyond the detention centers and indoctrination camps, Tibetans are free from tyranny. The systemic oppression and misery forced upon Tibet also has a psychological component. There’s no doubt the emotional and mental impact of decades of Chinese occupation, and the unrelenting assault upon Tibetan cultural and national identity, has inflicted trauma, anxiety and depression on a massive scale.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The witnessing of Tibetan culture being bulldozed towards oblivion, forced relocations into concentration camps and exploitation as forced-labor have left Tibet’s sense of itself in shreds. What has happened to the Tibetan people, forever scarred by such a cultural genocide and engineered terrorism? With no escape from the 24/7 cult of China’s communist party and its glorious leader, Xi Jinping what choices are there?

Resistance is of course fraught with dark and grim consequences for the dissenter and their family. Compliance is for many the only way to survive. But there’s a price to pay for that also. The daily indoctrination sessions, public propaganda events, all under the un-sleeping eye of mass-surveillance and the ever present dangers of informers. There’s a mental and emotional cost for compliance, as it involves the breakdown of personal and cultural identity.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

The societal and personal values which sprang from Tibet’s Buddhist culture are replaced by a fanaticism, and delusion. Individuality is rejected, there’s only subservience to the Chinese authorities and its political ideologies. The nature and extent of control which China has over Tibetans is staggering, not a single aspect of daily life is free from the intrusion of the occupying regime.

Tibet Is Being Tortured!

It is no exaggeration to say that Tibet itself is being tortured, and will be released from such anguish only when it regains its just national freedom. Otherwise the suffering will continue until the last remnant of Tibetan identity is destroyed.

Help Us Buy A Back-Up Computer For Our Tibet Activism

Help Us Buy A Back-Up Computer For Our Tibet Activism

We need $800 to invest in a back-up computer that will support the work we do on the cause of Tibetan national freedom, and our researches and exposure of the abuses and tyranny of China’s regime. But before we dive into that a little background is required.

In March we issued an appeal following the burn-out of a couple of laptops. The timing could not have been worse, the lock-down had just kicked in and our internet access was hit further by libraries being closed for weeks. This had a major impact on our digital work for Tibet and we had to borrow resources from friends to ensure our online activism.

What was a short-term solution has extended up to the present and we are extremely grateful to those good folk who stepped up to help. But while it’s been an amazing kindness it would be better for us to rebuild our computing resources and enable an added layer of protection against any future circumstances. This would allow our work to continue, without the disruptions and inconveniences we’ve had during the past months.

There has been some progress, we’ve acquired a new laptop that’s kept us online, this was funded in part from the wonderful donations we received from our friends and patrons. However, while this has been a excellent resource, we clearly need to restructure and with that in mind we’re hoping, with your help, to invest in a back-up computer.

Having looked into this we’ve chosen upon a mini-system, that would have all the capacity and computing power needed for our purposes, yet be extremely portable (a major assist). As well as featuring a high level of security and reliability. The configuration we’re choosing for a Linux installed system would give us the required processors and memory to meet all the tasks we carry out on a daily basis. Here’s the computer we’re hoping to secure: https://system76.com/desktops/meerkat

But you would be right to ask, why it is that we need to ask you for help? Well it’s simply this, unlike other Tibetan campaigning organizations we’re entirely based on volunteers and we are non-profit. We don’t charge for membership, receive grants and awards, nor are we being paid for our activism. It’s not a job for us, but a dedication and commitment

Digging into the customized specs of this computer, that would match the demands of our digital activism, the cost would be $800. That’s our goal.

If you would like to help us to purchase what would be a totally invaluable asset towards our efforts in support of the Tibetan cause then donations can be made simply and directly via our online PayPal link. Which is:

China Admits Incarcerating Over Half A Million Tibetans As Slave-Labor

China Admits Incarcerating Over Half A Million Tibetans As Slave-Labor

Image: researched and produced by @tibettruth

The Chinese regime declared August 24 2020 that during the year “Tibet helps 543,000 farmers, herdsmen find jobs”. See print-screen below

Let’s disentangle the euphemisms and distortions at work in that wording to reveal the facts behind the claim.

Firstly the ‘Tibet’ mentioned is not all of the traditional lands that comprise the country. It refers to a truncated region of Tibet, renamed following the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet as the so-called ‘Tibet Autonomous Region’.

Regarding the phrase ‘helps’ in reality this is a euphemism for coercing, as the Tibetans supposedly ‘helped’ had no choice. It was a dictate at the end of machine guns!

As to the ‘farmers’ and ‘herdsmen’ these are mostly Tibetan nomads who were rounded up, their animals confiscated and given to Chinese meat companies and animal by-product manufacturers. They were, like their farming compatriots, forced onto convoys of buses and placed into concrete concentration settlements or camps such as the one above.

Lastly we come to the mention of ‘jobs’, not as understood in democratic societies, this is slave-labor and political indoctrination in the most wretched of conditions. Tibetans exploited to a merciless degree, prisoners with no hope of release.

These are the cold truths behind the eye-catching headline of China’s regime. In that context our title for this post is neither a betrayal of accuracy, or exaggeration.

Chinese Regime Launching New Slave-Labor Facility In Southern Tibet

Chinese Regime Launching New Slave-Labor Facility In Southern Tibet

Image sourced, researched and produced by @tibettruth

Slave-labor has long been a go-to component of the Chinese regime’s oppressive tool box. Having inflicted millions of deaths since the rise of the communist party of China it continues to destroy lives.

It’s become increasingly used in occupied East Turkistan and indeed Tibet. With growing international concern that products sold around the world are manufactured at such places of misery and abuse.

Such anxieties are of no importance to China’s tyrannical authorities who continue with mass-arrests and deportations of Uyghurs and Tibetans in bondage to Chinese run companies and government backed projects.

Thank You Anonymous For Supporting Tibet

Thank You Anonymous For Supporting Tibet

Image: shared on twitter by @anonriddler

Each passing day that Tibetans endure the brutal occupation of their land, and in exile voices are raised to oppose and expose China’s tyrannical and illegal presence in occupied Tibet, something extraordinary is taking place.

An action in support of the just cause of Tibetan national freedom which often goes unnoticed by many organizations and individuals who are active on Tibet.

Due to its covert nature it does not attract the attention of the wider Tibetan movement, but we have been very pleased and honored to report on such activism over recent years.

We refer of course to those anonymous activists who collaborate across ‘Operation Tibet’, ‘Team-Riddler’ and ‘The Creed‘. These individuals carry out amazing work in solidarity with Tibet and have inflicted much damage upon the digital infrastructure of the Chinese regime and its corrupted corporations.

As part of that action Anonymous launched a campaign targeting China’s mass-surveillance system, and have been quietly removing Chinese servers linked with that from the internet.

Today this incredible activism has witnessed yet another such server being taken offline, reported across Twitter. At the time of writing https://182.240.228.93/  is not accessible, a very welcome situation to all those supporting human rights and freedom.

We wish to express our respect and genuine appreciation to all those individuals who are engaged in those operations.

Time Save The Children Broke Its Silence On China’s Mass Abuse Of Uyghur Children

Time Save The Children Broke Its Silence On China's Mass Abuse Of Uyghur Children

Caution: Disturbing viewing advisory.

But this footage shot inside one of the many child detention centers run by the Chinese regime in occupied East Turkistan, demands to be witnessed. Because it shows a glimpse of the brutality and abuse inflicted upon Uyghur children, already abducted from their parents and mentally and emotionally traumatized inside what are indoctrination prisons.

This is happening on a massive scale and like the sickening abuse suffered by infants who are targeted by pedophiles, the scars left by such violations last a lifetime.

Yet these atrocities are being deliberately ignored by the very organization which declares itself as a guardian and champion of children’s rights. Despite being repeatedly informed, lobbied and appealed to Save The Children (STC) is refusing to offer a word of concern or condemnation against the terrorism being inflicted by China’s regime against Uyghur infants.

We are determined to continue our exposure of and challenge to STC and invite all those supporting human rights and opposing child abuse to join us. That organization’s silence is nothing less than complicity and as such makes them a legitimate focus for action!
