Death In Tibet

Real life Intrudes today:

I'm a very angry person today, after watching the film of the murder a Tibetan nun. I won't put the URL , all you need to do is type "tibet nun shot" in Google, and it's everywhere.

I was a member of Free Tibet about 10 years ago, and I wrote letters to Governments, asking for help for the Tibetans, and the recognition of the Dalai Lama. But I realized it was a dream more than reality. China will never leave Tibet, it sees no reason to, it's like asking when the US will leave Hawaii.

I've read the books and articles from the refugees, the stories of the torture and killing of the Tibetans by the Chinese, the shooting in the film happens every week, it's nothing new, so why am I so angry?

But then as the Chinese have said, they were attacked, and the Army was just defending itself, and this film shows that they are just blatant liars, and they always have been when it comes to Tibet.

Now they have been caught out, and the Chinese Govt are very keen to decide when black is white, and they will screem and shout that black is white and anyone who disagrees is an enemy of China.

You may have seen a few films about China, rememer that Richard Gere film where he has sex with his Chinese lawyer? I have been told that woman who have sex with a non-chinese will be a social outcast All films with Chinese woman havign sex with non-chinese, are either heavily cut or banned. Why? because it's institutionaly racist.

Naturally films with Chinese men and non-chinese woman are fine.

Time to start some activisim.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. Dalai Lama

That is a great quote from the DL. What is the point in protesting if the tipping point is not near? What would you propose to change the Chinese gov?

Actually I think it's all over for the Tibetans.

It does not register on the world stage, and Tibet does not have any minerals or oil that makes it important.

It's biggest mistake was to stay isolated in the early 20th century.

If it had joined the League of Nations when it had the chance, it would have been recognized as an independant state, not a vassel state of China, as the Chinese gov have always claimed.
