Once there was unity between the struggle waged by the brave Tibetan people and their exiled government. The shared vision was to regain the rightful national freedom of Tibet. Now, as Tibetans inside occupied Tibet suffer the terrifying oppression of Chinese tyranny and yet still demand independence for Tibet, in exile an elite Tibetan political cabal is on its knees to the Chinese regime seeking a dangerously compromised ‘solution’.
This treacherous surrender has been going on for a number of years now, but since the election, as ‘political leader’ of Doctor Lobsang Sangy the pace of capitulation has increased. His latest public overture on the subject was given to the US Heritage Foundation May 25, 2017 during which he repeated the mantra of a negotiated settlement. The aim of which would be autonomy under Chinese rule.
“If the Chinese government implement their own laws listed in the Constitution and minorities nationalities act, we could take that as genuine autonomy,” Lobsang Sangay ‘Political Leader’ Central Tibetan Administration May 25 2017 Address To The Heritage Foundation)
This is a universe away from the objectives and dreams which are held in Tibetan hearts, no accommodation with China’s tyranny is sought, no appeal for autonomy raised by Tibetan protests. As the final words of Ms Sangay Dolma, and other Tibetans who have sacrificed their lives testify:
“Look up, Tibetans, look at the snow mountains. The snowland’s era has begun. And Tibet is free and independent”
Any reading of Tibetan political protest inside Tibet reveals the goal is, and has been consistently, one of national independence for Tibet and the return of the Dalai Lama.
