China's internal party documents expose repressive strategy in Tibet
Phayul[Sunday, July 13, 2008 14:06]
By Tenzin Sangmo

New Delhi, July 13 - The April and May installments of the confidential bulletin Xigang Tongxun (Tibet Communications) which is circulated only within party officials uncovered that China is embarking on a series of predetermined political domination in Tibet. Translations of the original texts were obtained by The Sunday Times in Hong Kong.

Zhang Qingli who was appointed the Party Secretary of Tibet in 2006 is disclosed to have planned an operation of 're-education' in private communiqué with other Communist party members.

The March unrest broke out in Lhasa, Tibet after decades of brutal administration of a regime which has little or no record of human rights execution. The internal papers rated casualties of Chinese soldiers and police at 242, with 120 homes and business establishments destroyed in Lhasa. The Tibetan Government in Exile on its part accounts the loss of Tibetan lives at 209 with those injured above 1000 and 5,972 behind bars.

Amid China's claims of separatist acts by the Dalai Lama and followers alike, Zhang acknowledged that there was much 'destruction of social stability' during the anti-China protest in Tibet.

The head of party line in Tibet, Lie Que was even more overt in his comments carried by the official Tibet Daily June 2.

"We must clean out the monasteries and strengthen the administrative committees. After that we will absolutely control them," he said.

Accusing the Tibetan spiritual leader of masterminding the disturbances that took place Zhang has according to party manuscripts clandestinely said,

"We must learn lessons from this issue and organize our masses to build up an impregnable fortress against the tide of encirclement to beat our enemy."

"But we are far from final victory because the Dalai Lama group, which was exploited by western enemy forces, is making a new plan for separatism," he said. "So you, the leaders of work units, must guard your gates and manage your people well. Let leaders of street committees be vigilant and keep watch on all outsiders.

"Propaganda and education are our party's greatest advantages. These are the most useful weapons with which to defend ourselves against the Dalai Lama group. So let the propaganda department work more actively to expose its plots."

He is further quoted to have said, "Each department should make full use of those religious people who love the motherland and love religion, in order to make the administrative committees work with vigor," implying that the law enforcement, religious branches and all political divisions should apply his directives.

China's leaders have earlier blamed the Dalai Lama of plotting 'terror' in Tibet and conspiring with Uighur nationalists in Xinjiang to escalate tension in the region in the run up to the Olympic Games.

The Dalai Lama has always maintained that He supported Beijing's hosting of the Olympic Games but claimed that pro-Tibet demonstrators had a right to voice their opinion as long as they refrained from violence.

Zhang created much controversy during the Lhasa leg of the Olympic torch relay prompting the IOC to reprimand him when he said, "Tibet's sky will never change and the red flag with five stars will forever flutter high above it. We will certainly be able to totally smash the splittist schemes of the Dalai Lama clique." The remark made by Zhang was seen by many as politicizing the Games and a gross display of control over Tibet which was once an independent nation.

China's great will to tighten its grip of control and authority over Tibet in the coming days with mass restriction implied on practicing one's religion and exercising basic rights of speech and movement will cause Tibetan minorities to suffer depriving them further of their dignity and morality. Party leaders are in no doubt that their crusade against Tibetans will succeed; for them it is yet another feather in their unscrupulous caps.
