I was pretty upset last night when I did a Google search on “news in Tibet” and got this pro-China search result to an article that mentioned how Tibet was always a part of China, blah blah blah. It was disgusting Communist propaganda launched amidst the protests by Tibetan monks and nuns for refusing to denounce the Dalai Lama and show allegiance to China.
Tibetan monks and nuns have a moral right to practice their own religion and the Tibetan people have a moral right to practice their culture!
Tibetan monks and nuns shouldn’t have to be forced to denounce the Dalai Lama in favor of China! Here’s a brief history of Tibet, forwarded to me by Jessica.
Various Headline News
Angered by foreign sympathy for the protesters and support for the Dalai Lama, China is bearing down hard on the exiled Tibetan religious leader, blaming him and his followers for stirring up trouble in an effort to sabotage the Beijing Olympics in August.
The Foreign Office annual report on human rights says there has been a “disappointing” lack of progress towards a peaceful settlement, and people are regularly “harassed” for their religious beliefs.
“Violations of human rights continue in Tibet,” the report states.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Tuesday that he cannot rule out the possibility he might boycott the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics if China continues its crackdown in Tibet.
An official from France’s state television company said the broadcaster would likely boycott the games if coverage was censored, and the European Union, United States, Australia and Canada urged China to show restraint as it tries to quell continuing unrest in its Tibetan areas.
China has succeeded in stemming the flow of information out of Tibet in recent days, according to Tibetan activists in India who had relied on e-mails and mobile phone calls to piece together the extent of a Chinese military crackdown on pro-Tibet demonstrations.
I openly boycott the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and I encourage everyone to do the same. To support Tibet in its struggle for religious and cultural freedom is the morally correct thing to do.
It’s a shame, a great nation like the United States can not help Tibet. It’s unfortunate how things in this world are politically driven, and the powers-that-be have their priorities.
If China’s quest for Tibet is a final victory, then who’s to stop them from marching into Nepal, Burma and India? And maybe by the time they reach India it’ll be too late to tilt the world in favor of Democracy.
Show your support to FREE TIBET. And denounce the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. China is already using this as a political struggle and is using their newfound economic power for world domination.
