When China’s Communist Party celebrates the 60th anniversary of its rule in October it will want to present to its people — and to the world — the image of a Government in control of a booming economy and an increasingly open society.

This shows that they do not just treat Tibetans like crap, but they also treat their other oppressed minorities that way too.

Lesson learned, do not protest in china without buying a tombstone first

That is some hard core oppression there. Murderous oppression.

The LA Riots back in the 90's were far less intense than that. Apparently the LA riots were a cakewalk compared to China


heres my source for the death counts
www.cnn.com...

here is a link to the Xinhua news agency itself
news.xinhuanet.com...

do not worry, it is in english because they know theres no way in hell we can read Chinese characters (cuneiform?)
