Just wanted to share a documentary i found regarding the current situation in Tibet. It's made by a man, who fled Tibet 10 years ago and returned for three months filming and staying undercover.

It's about 50 minutes in 5 parts and very interesting to watch. Sure, a man who fled will have some heavy bias, but what you see there are people who live there - the scars are real, the girl being shot is real, the brutality is real.

Unfortunately i seem to be too stupid to get proper youtube links embedded, so here are the links

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

Watch it please, then pass your judgement. In the moment i'm still watching part 5 and some accounts are plainly shocking.

And please, for the heck of it, stop trying to justify the chinese human right crimes with that of other countries. Two wrongs doesn't make one right.




the ethnic tibetan population jumped from 1.5million people to today's nearly 5 million people in 50years


from www.tibet.com...

The population of Tibet at the time of the Chinese invasion was approximately six million.


And please get your numbers right.

That Beijing guy is shilling for China elsewhere on the board. I don't think he can watch those YOUTUBES that have been posted. They are banned in China .. the China that he's shilling for.

if Two wrongs doesn't make one right,why not correct your wrongs first,and give back the land to native people ,and pack up to go back to your ancestral countris?

I just watched the first link. WOW. It was amazing.
I'll be watching the rest ...

I feel so fortunate to be living in the USA.
God bless those poor people.

I noticed that they briefly mentioned the Olympics. Dennis Miller was on TV the other day. He said that instead of this boycott ... the olympians themselves should all come out in the opening ceremony wearing either an armband OR part of the Tibetian Monk Robes. This would be a huge statement - bigger than politicians not going to the opening games.

I agree. And many of the Chinese and Tibetians would see that.

Thanks for sharing the videos.

I had no idea how bad it was for those people, walking for one month in that wide open terrain in that freezing cold.

Wow. What courage. Those people are the true heros, very inspiring.

I have watched the first two and will continue the series.

that was shot by a romanian mountaineer,althout the quality of the picutre is not very good,but i would say that probablly true footage.that is a border area and for long time different counties do daily border patrol around that area,and that is also a important passage way to china by many infiltraters in the history,border tresspassing is also forbidden around that area.in 1962,there was a war between china and india,and till now ,two countries troops are still hostile towards each other.that is a heavely guarded border area.if some tresspassers were found the soldiers probablly will shoot,same thing happens in other side of the border too in the history.but i still say shooting people is bad,even they kind of ilegally cross borders,but human life is worth more than anything esle,i m very glad to learn that the army commander of that aera was severely punished.hopefully that kind of tragedy wont happen again.

And imagine how beautiful life for the Tibetans has to be, to take such a journey, where your toes are freezing away and the danger to be shot in the back lurks anytime.
The other parts are even more shocking, forced sterilisation without sedation, people in total fear....

When seeing the people living in this conditions, the reasons for a violent riot become much more understandable, as sad as this is. Unfortunately, without international help, the Tibetans don't stand a chance against the chinese military - 1 soldier for 20 Tibetans is a disgusting ratio and i fear by no later then the end of the olympics, life will get even worse for the them.

Yes, getting shot at, watching children die, being sentenced to 15 years for protesting, tanks in the streets.

I really didn't have a clue that such things would be happening, particularly for so long.

The guy that made the video escaped and went back ten years later only to find it worse than when he left.

It seems so sacred and special up there in that area, the location filming alone is worth the watch of the videos, the awareness of the atrocity is simply mind boggling.

What can be kept behind the curtain when the keepers shoot to kill is just horrific.
