Soon after the Communist rose to power, they sent armed forces which easily defeated Tibet's army. The destruction of Tibet's culture and the oppression of it's people was brutal during the twenty years following the invasion. In this short period of time 1.2 million Tibetans, one-fifth of the population, died by Chinese hand, in prison, starving, or by being worked to death in labor camps.

Century-old Conflict?
Tibet Vs. China
Tibet has been under the sovereignty of China since the Yuan Dynasty (1368). Traditionally a culture with reverence for Buddhism as it was key in the development of Tibet. Since China's transition to communism in 1959, religious freedom dwindled. This religious disagreement and power struggle has been the source of Tibet's push for succession. Another event that fueled the flame was exile of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Buddhism and and leader of Tibet.
Why It's Important To Tibet
Tibet is highly valued for a multitude of reasons. While its cultural and religious importance has kept the flame of rebellion alive, the land is also extremely important to china's economy. It also serves as the center of Buddhism, so it resist the foundational beliefs of a communist sovereignity.

segregation of all of these
provinces. The chances of
these areas succeeding
would rise exponentially
if Tibet is successful in
its endeavor.
