I am heartfully sickened by this terrible news. Oh but my prayers are going out. What more can we do? My home is open to any and all Tibetian monks and nuns. I will be traveling up the mountain in June with my family to go sit with and meditate with the monks. I will be taking donations and money for them as well. I am so sorry, if only you knew how special these enlightened beings are in real life.

It is really absurd that some Americans still stiffly believe that
Chinese people are inaccessible to foreign site, especially
when the amount of Chinese netizen is exceeding the total population
from this you can see how ignorant some Americans are.
If I were you I'd like to question about the information released by
Tibet separatists, obviously, they have the motivation to exaggerate
and distort the fact to get your sympathy.
Internet censorship in the People's Republic of China is conducted under a wide variety of laws and administrative regulations. In accordance with these laws, more than sixty Internet regulations have been made by the People's Republic of China (PRC) government, and censorship systems are vigorously implemented by provincial branches of state-owned ISPs, business companies, and organizations.
The apparatus of the PRC's Internet repression is considered more extensive and more advanced than in any other country in the world. The regime not only blocks website content but also monitors the internet access of individuals. Amnesty International notes that China “has the largest recorded number of imprisoned journalists and cyber-dissidents in the world.” The offences of which they are accused include communicating with groups abroad, opposing the persecution of the Falun Gong, signing online petitions, and calling for reform and an end to corruption.
Chinese authorities blocking internet for celebration of Tibetan New Year
Already closed to foreign visitors, the region is increasingly isolated from the world. Beijing is massing troops in the zone, ready to repress any protest.
Beijing (AsiaNews/Agencies) - In view of the Tibetan New Year (Losar), which falls on February 25, residents of the region are denouncing that the internet has been completely blocked, isolating them from the world. In recent days, Beijing has increased the massive presence of police and army personnel in Tibet and in the nearby areas of Tibetan ethnicity, in Gansu, Sichuan, and elsewhere. For some time, these areas have been off-limits to foreign tourists.
The Chinese government has cracked down on international media coverage of the unrest in Tibet, blocking websites and censoring the local feeds of broadcasters including BBC World and CNN.
"Human rights cannot interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crises," Clinton said in talks with China's foreign minister.

In today's world, if you show you flabbiness, those western ruffian
will be insatiable, endless compromise, explanation, communication can
only encourage them to oppress you, don't forget they are the offspring
of sea rover, slave trader, colonist, mobster....
Now more and more Chinese people realize this, we will instigate
our government to be more aggressive, not to yield an inch.
Russia is a shining example for us.
Then those western ruffian will shut up for ever.
