PAUSE FOR A MOMENT & THINK ‪#‎TIBET‬:
65 Top Chinese Government officials are currently in Lhasa celebrating the ‘peaceful liberation of Tibet’, and egregiously claiming that the colonized nation is currently in its golden age symbolizing harmony and joy, where Tibetans are showing steadfast confidence towards building a prosperous society living a happy life.

Standing in front of the Potala Palace, China’s top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng, vowed to “fight a protracted battle” with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and urged the Chinese army, police and judicial staff in Tibet to further crackdown on Tibetans.
Their state media used the anniversary to launch attacks on His Holiness, calling Him a “cheater”, “wolf in monk’s robes,” and a “cruel ruler in exile”.

During a visit to the holy Jokhang Temple, Yu reconfirmed on China managing Tibet’s religious affairs according to law (includes appointing the next Dalai Lama). They further added that His Holiness the Panchen Lama (the world’s longest-serving political prisoner and the second most important figure in Tibetan Buddhism) is “living a normal life” and “does not wish to be disturbed.”
