Subject: Senator Bob Brown and the real Tibet
Dec 20 2007 09:30 AM

Australian Greens Senator Bob Brown, who has just returned from an unofficial visit to Tibet.

Dr Brown's account of that visit, published in TheAge yesterday confirms what Tibet supporters around the world have consistently maintained: That Beijing's efforts to break the sway of the Dalai Lama have largely failed, that Buddhism is still an existential force, and the one drearn of most Tibetans is to have their revered religious leader back.

The senator has provided a timely reminder of what has been well documented by Amnesty International and other human rights organisations: since China invaded Tibet in 1950, non-violent protest byT ibetans has been brutally suppressed: the human rights and fundamental freedoms of the Tibetan people continue to be gravely abused; arbitrary arrests, disappearances and enforced labour camps are routine; and monks and nuns who do not make written denunciations of the Daial Lama fill the prisons, where they are subject to extreme torture.

While China maintains the fiction of Tibetan selfrule, mass migration of Han Chinese into Tibet means the locals will soon be a minority in their own land. Despite beijing's depiction of the Dalai Lama as the most evil face of the "splittist" movement, the Nobel Peace laureate is no longer demanding independence for Tibet, but has repeatedly offered to negotiate for an autonomous state.China wants Tibet for its minerals, its forests and its strategic importance it is a traditional buffer state between China and India.
