Transcript of Tibet

Tibet Tibet Tibet lies on the Southwestern
border of China in the
Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
The region covers an area of approximately 1.2 million square kilometers, or 460,000 square miles The Tibetan Autonomous Region is home to more than 2.62 million people

History Traditionally, Tibet was a large independent country with its own culture, language, and government.
In 1951,
the People's
Liberation Army
invaded Tibet.
After the defeat of the minimal Tibetan forces, Tibetan officials were forced to send a negotiating party to Beijing. However, While in Beijing, the negotiating party was pressured to sign
the Seventeen Point Agreement Under this agreement, Tibet agreed to become sovereign to The People's Republic of China, but would retain much of its own government structure and autonomy. Though China had consented to allow a certain degree of autonomy for Tibet, its policies often violated the terms of the agreement. In one such instance, the Chinese government arrested a six-year-old boy who had been named the Panchen Lama, the second highest ranking in Tibet, after the Dalai Lama. This kind of behavior greatly angered many Tibetans, and conflict would arise countless times because of the issue. These conflicts escalated multiple times to the point of uprising against the Chinese government, the first instance of which occurred in
March of 1959. On the day of the revolt, Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, and many of his high priests and officers fled to India.
These government officials became the government-in-exile, known as the Central Tibetan Administration. Today, Tibet still has little autonomy. The Chinese impact on the country is growing, as more and more Tibetans leave the TAR while an even greater number of Han Chinese are moving to the area, enticed to move by incentives from the Chinese government. Cataclysmic Event! As the world clamors for the nuclear annihilation of China, the tiny voice of Tibet is lost in the crowd. However, before we wipe out all of China, we should remember the history of Tibet. Tibet never wanted to be part of China; it held its own independent culture, one that deserves to remain intact. To the Tibetans, their culture was more important than anything China had to offer, and for thousands, was important enough to fight and die for. SAVE So as China's wanton ways lead it to destruction, heed the voice of reason. If nothing else... By Zach Moxley
