Dharamshala: – With the wave of self-immolation protests spreading across Tibet, the entire region is now ‘under undeclared martial law.’ The Chinese regime has banned international tourists and journalists from entering the Tibet, exile Tibetan government said on Thursday, August 30, 2012.

“The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) is gravely concerned by the deteriorating situation in Tibet. Despite repeated appeals by the Central Tibetan Administration to refrain from drastic actions, over 51 Tibetans have now set themselves on fire in protest against the Chinese government’s repressive policies,” said CTA in a statement.

“Since March 2009, over 51 Tibetans between age of 16 – 64, comprising of monks, nuns, student, nomads, farmers, have now set themselves on fire asking for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet and freedom for Tibetans,” the statement said.

The Tibetan government in exile said that the “whole of Tibet is effectively under undeclared martial law, and remains closed to foreign tourists and journalists. Such brutal response from the Chinese government has pushed an increasing number of Tibetans to continue taking drastic steps. The responsibility for the tragic self-immolations in Tibet lies entirely with the Chinese government, so does the solution.”

“The international community, including governments and parliaments of countries such as Australia, Canada, the Czech Republic, European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Poland, South Africa, and the US, have expressed serious concern over the critical situation in Tibet,” CTA said.

“Resolutions have been passed and statements issued urging the Chinese authorities to take proactive steps to ease security clampdown in Tibet, address the underlying grievances of Tibetans through dialogue, and cease promoting policies that threaten the Tibetan language, culture, religion, heritage and environment. Central Tibetan Administration urges the Chinese government to heed the urgent appeal of the international community,” the statement further added.

However, the authorities have simply ignored or disregarded those resolutions call upon Hu’s regime to respect human rights and religious freedoms of Tibetan people.

CTA also said, “the Chinese people, who have the right to know the real situation in Tibet, include individuals who have expressed their concern over the grim situation in Tibet. This included renowned Beijing-based artist, Ai Weiwei, who recently expressed his personal embarrassment at how the Chinese government is dealing the tragic self-immolations of Tibetans in Tibet.”

“We appeal to individual governments to use their good offices to engage the Chinese government to end the crisis in Tibet at the upcoming United Nations General Assembly meeting in September, to allow fact-finding delegation and international media to visit Tibet, and to pursue substantive dialogue with the Central Tibetan Administration to resolve the issue of Tibet,” the statement concluded.

    “The Chinese regime has banned international tourists and journalists from entering the Tibet, exile Tibetan government said on Thursday, August 30, 2012.”

    are these “democrats” like the syrian “democrats” the zionazis are running?

    i think so:

    “Although the Dalai Lama claims that Dorje Shugden is a demon and that the cult is a deviation, the worship of the Dorje Shugden is widespread throughout traditional Tibetan Buddhism. Since the Dalai Lama’s decision to outlaw this practice, thousands of monks have been excluded from visiting temples. In fact, the Dalai Lama’s dictatorial campaign against the Dorje Shugden religion threatens to exclude over 4 million Tibetans from practicing their religion.

    According to the Dalai Lama, the Dorje Shugden are traitors to the cause of Tibetan independence. Such is the Tibetan leader’s “tolerance”. The Dalai Lama’s violations of human rights are rarely, if ever, mentioned among the cacophony of hysterical “free Tibet” sloganeering in the mass media.

    Death threats and the ostracism of whole families who practice this traditional form of Buddhism are common in Dharamsala. Thousands of people have had to flee Dharamsala due to the “tolerant” Dalai Lama’s commands. Many people have been murdered.

    The French documentary made it abundantly clear that the Dalai Lama functions as an absolute dictator in Dharamsala. The French film crew was even prevented by Tibetan officials from recording a dispute between a Dorje Shugden monk and his pro-Dalai Lama opponent.

    Breaking with official orthodoxy, the France 24 report admitted that the Dalai Lama and his independence movement has no popular support in Tibet and that many Tibetans actually fear a return to the days of Lama autocracy. One of the thousands of Doje Shugden practitioners who fled from Dalai Lama worshipers told France 24 reporters:

    If he’s really Buddha, if he’s really god, you know, he won’t create so many problems, you know, he won’t give us such trouble. I believe if he is a Buddha, he won’t create any problem for one human being, so we have changed our mind now, we don’t see him as we saw him earlier.

    The Dalai Lama’s problem with these Buddhists is simply that they worship the symbolic god Dorje Shugden and not “his holiness, the Dalai Lama”. The exiled leader is persecuting Buddhists for not worshiping himself and his insatiable desire to become the puppet dictator of a ‘free Tibet’ under NATO hegemony. Any worshiper of Dorje Shugden is, then, automatically dismissed as an ‘agent’ of China.

    The France 24 report also admitted that the Dorje Shugden community constitutes the majority in Tibet and that they were almost all pro-Chinese government.

    In France we tend to associate Tibet with the Dalai Lama but there are many Tibetans who are Buddhists, who think that China actually contributed something to Tibet.

    The reporter adroitly omitted the “quelque chose” which Tibetans thank the CPC for; namely, the liberation from serfdom!

    After the reportage, the France 24 presenter asked one of the correspondents Capucine Henry:

    So just how taboo is it to criticize the Dalai Lama?

    To which Madame Henry replied:

    It’s completely taboo. Actually our shooting of the reportage was very difficult because we had our camera smashed in. The Dalai Lama is considered as a living god. He has achieved a level of clairvoyance that means that every decision he takes is the rule of law. If you criticize the Dalai Lama, you are judged to be a Chinese spy.”

    one could say the dally lama’s “democrats” are almost zionist jewish in the way they view dissent.

      the zionazis have probably increased their operations in china because the chinese refused to abandon their principles on syria. they’ve done the same thing in russia. that’s how the jewish mafia operates.

    meanwhile, ukraine is thinking of becoming an sco observer nation:

    “Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said he is interested in the export of Ukrainian high-tech products to Asian countries and said Ukraine would like to get observer status in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).”

    I am not really bothered about the Dalai Lama myself, Hero worship never appealed to me, due to my immense disdain for authority figures. Although I have read 2 of his books. Have you read any who_me?

      “Have you read any who_me?”

      no, but i did see some documentary material about him and saw/heard several interviews with him back in the 80’s-90’s. back then i was a mild fan and thought he was a pretty cool, likeable man of peace, and took him at his word. it was later when i found out what was really going on with the guy that i realised the same sort of misrepresentation of fact about him and tibet was going on, as was being done about zionism and israel, in modern western representations. in both cases, the “unpleasant” facts are replaced with nothing but favourable propaganda.
