We Are All China Now!

We Are All China Now!

As subscribers, readers and friends of our digital activism will have noticed, our reportage on Tibet has been lacking during the past months. We wanted to reach-out and lay bare the reasons for that absence. Firstly, there’s an increasing challenge in securing information on the situation inside occupied Tibet as the Chinese regime intensifies its suffocation of Tibetan culture. The borders are sealed. What goes down is concealed and suppressed by a digital tyranny, every movement and daily activity is monitored, assessed and recorded. It is mass-surveillance and subjugation; of a nature and scale, which even Orwell’s nightmares could not have imagined.

Then, we have the reality of a world changed. Damaged beyond recognition in less than two years, by governments implementing policies which have torn-up democratic practice and respect for individual rights. This plunge into totalitarianism employed a justification, long used by the tyrant, that the curtailment of freedoms is for the ‘good-of-the-nation.’. Of course to steer a people into quiet obedience requires an extremely powerful force. Nothing can paralyze a mind with greater efficiency, than ‘fear’. To that end citizens across the globe have been subject to a relentless program of psychological manipulation that has terrorized and traumatized. Being kept in a condition of dread and confusion, by precisely engineered messaging, has produced a frightening measure of compliance.

So it is, that our society is degraded and fractured, while rights once cherished and defended are replaced by an orthodoxy which elevates the edict of the state to a position of unquestioned authority. Dissent is met with derision, slander, and censorship. Police and security forces are given additional powers, draconian legislation is rushed into existence, all implemented to produce conformity. There’s no critical or independent media challenging the strangulation of democracy and human rights. Indeed, journalism has become a willing conduit for the propaganda narrative, an enthusiastic delivery-boy of fear.

These oppressive measures, constructed patriotism, state-control, censorship have worrying similarities with the default governance of the Chinese regime. There are darker parallels. Since the reported emergence of this flu-variant virus digital technology has been employed by governments as a form of identity card. Under the claim of monitoring infection spread, invasive apps enable a person’s movement to be directly tracked. Cell phones have been occupied by your authorities, it is you which is being surveyed.

In an echo of Pavlov’s experiments you’re groomed to respond to the latest ping alert from a public health body, it is behavioral control and reinforcement. More than that, in serving as a certification of injection it’s part of a process that creates division and suspicion, bringing into being a corrosive social virus of ‘them and us’. Will such technology, as it is in China, soon be used to record, assess and reward approved social behaviors? A model-citizen on the end of a virtual leash!

The activism on Tibet provided by our network is volunteered by people in differing locations and cultures. Yet since the start of 2020 there’s, without doubt, been a commonality of experience within those respective places; which has witnessed the disintegration of civil liberties and rise of government control. It is increasingly observable that democracy and human rights are in retreat.

Such is the nature of these troubling circumstances, and potentially catastrophic impacts for fellow citizens, that we decided to dial-down our focus on Tibet. We’re still reporting across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook but less frequently. While this platform is committed to bringing Tibet linked news, as and when required, resources and attention so generously donated by our team is directed towards a human rights struggle which is now urgently demanded within our own communities.

China’s Viral Scaremongering In Occupied Tibet

China's Viral Scaremongering In Occupied Tibet

So yesterday Chinese media reported a person in occupied Tibet had contracted the flu-variant known as Corona Virus, the individual we are told showed no serious illness and is seemingly in a stable condition. What’s not so secure however is the Chinese regime. This largely mild infection has put the oppressors of Tibet into panic mode.

Paranoid of public reaction in China itself, with the nightmare vision of social unrest and dissent, Xi Jinping and his psychopathic dictatorship are posing as patriotic defenders of the state. Indeed the public narrative is about winning a war. Those of a more skeptical disposition could be forgiven on regarding this as an exercise in mass propaganda. To a considerable degree it is just that. Sure there’s a public health need towards a virus which thus far appears relatively mild, but make no mistake China’s government is also exploiting the situation for political purposes.

Bombarding Tibetan homes with 24/7 propaganda reportage on this virus, instilling a sense of fear and uncertainty while presenting itself as a trusted and reliable savior is just another psy-op being waged against the people of occupied Tibet.

Tibetans Being Hit By Deadly Virus That Carries A Gun And Speaks Chinese!

While mainstream media pumps out sensationalist headlines and scare-mongering reports on the corona virus in China the regime is doing what it does best, locking down populations, putting paramilitary on the streets, banning travel and of course censoring reportage. It is also taking full advantage of the situation (which some are wondering may well be an engineered ‘crisis’) to present itself as savior of the people.

In Lhasa today the man who signs the orders to brutalize the Tibetans of U Tsang Region of occupied Tibet, Mr Wu Yingjie paid a propaganda visit to a medical facility. How the tortured and oppressed  of Tibet must have celebrated knowing that this Chinese regime thug was in the forefront against this virus!

It was of course another staged performance, serving as ever the political needs of the Chinese authorities, there’s little evidence that Tibetans have contracted this latest viral condition. Menwhile amid the reporting frenzy surrounding this story there’s much disinformation and as usual a lack of realism. Well for anyone currently scared by what they’re seeing across the internet or on news reports (and we hear in exile a Tibetan lama has offered a protective mantra to protect Tibetans) let’s put things into perspective with some hard math. Are you ready?

106 (today’s total reported from China as having died from this virus) 1,439,323,776 (China’s population)

The formula being: 106 divided by 1,439,323,776 multiplied by 100 

Which equals: 0.000007365% (the percentage of China’s population that have reportedly died from the virus)

Now compare that tiny figure with the following:

2400 (reported CEC figure for Seasonal Flu Deaths in the US 2019) 327,096,265 (population of the US)

The equation now being: 2400 divided by 327,096,265 multiplied by 100

Which equals: 0.000733729% (percentage of USA’s population that died from Seasonal Flu in 2019)

Kinda brings home the reality as to why the panic and anxiety being whipped up by media and the actions of the Chinese authorities is misplaced.

There’s only one virus in Tibet that’s causing misery, illness and death, and that’s the presence and policies of China’s regime and its tyrannical military.!
