Tibet: China forcibly takes Tibetan teens for propaganda indoctrination
Phayul[Saturday, June 23, 2007 16:35]
Dhartsedo (Tibet), June 2007: An eyewitness account from nomadic region of Amdo, Tibet, alerts to mass removal into China of every Tibetan teenager between the ages of 8 to 13.

"If a family has 3 sons aged between 8 and 13, all three are being forcibly taken to China by the Chinese military personnel,” says the informer. “Every Tibetan child within those age range is trucked into China; there is no choice, the Chinese are forcibly transporting to China Tibetan kids en mass. Kids from all the nomadic regions are being taken forcibly by the Chinese," the witness said.

When asked what could be the reason for that, he explains, "The Tibetan teens are going to be brainwashed down in China. This is a major preparation for the Games (referring to Beijing 2008 Olympics)propaganda."

The witness said that China is taking great precaution to paint a rosy picture of situation inside Tibet. "The Chinese are offering money to some poor Tibetan families with the condition that the locals parrot the official pretty lines to any foreign visitors during the upcoming Beijing Games."

These nomadic areas are within a day's bus ride northeast of the historic crossroad-town of Dhartsedo (Chinese: Kangding), in the eastern fringes of Tibet. According to the same source, what the Chinese are doing to Tibetans is "very dirty." "There is immense tension here and the facts about what are happening inside Tibet have to be extracted from talking to the nomads. They will tell you the truth," the witness says.


The story was transmitted to Phayul by a traveler (refusing to be named) who recently made a two-day unplanned tour inside eastern historical border area of Tibet with China from Chengdu. A Tibetan, on condition of anonymity, exposed the news of the appalling situation in Tibet “with the hope that I (the visitor) would pass it onto the free world.”
