Transcript of Tibet Genocide

Mike Roberts Tibet Genocide 1959(1949)- 1990's(present) What You Can Do To Help! Tibetans rose up against their Chinese occupiers, the up-rise was immediately halted by the Chinese military. Around the same time Dalai Lama (Tibet spiritual leader) and more then 80,000Tibetans escaped to India. After this the Chinese began the next phases of their occupation. 1959 Tibetan singers often sung pop songs on Tibetan and Chinese television stations. These routine shows showed citizens (in Tibet and China) that were not witnessing the occupation first hand that the Tibet culture was not being harmed by the occupation. Bystanders: ICT (International Campaign for Tibet): Resistors: Go to http://www.savetibet.org/ Victims: Tibetans, and their culture. Perpetrators: Communist Chinese Government Bystanders: Resistors: ICT, Dalai Lama, 1959 Uprisers Early Occupation For centuries Tibet was a fairly remote country between China and India. In 1949 after the communist Chinese government got a strong foundation they invaded Tibet and quickly over powered the small Tibetan military. After the invasion China began colonizing Tibet, and doing what they can to destroy the Tibetan identity. Tibet was targeted by China for strategic and economic reasons because of their Communist Party's imperialist ambitions. The Next Phases: 1959-1966: -Violent suppression of government and culture,
-Mass arrests,
-Large number of labor camps,
-Annexation of Tibet. 1966-1976: -Destroyed remaining monasteries and monuments,
-Killed those resisting destruction of the "four olds",
-Eradicate all traces of Tibetan Buddhist culture. 1976-1993 -Temporary liberalization, reversed by Xioping
-Mass influx in settlers
-Martial law and renewed suppression
