Subject: DEAD PEOPLE TALKING by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa
Mar 15 2008 10:05 PM

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

You can tell we were shot to death
By the holes in the back of our heads
You can tell we were buried alive
By the mud in our noses and mouths
You can tell we were bludgeoned to death
By the cracks on our skulls and bones
You can tell we were hung to death
By the marks on our bare necks
You can tell we were electrocuted to death
By the burns on our naked bodies
You can tell we were drowned to death
By the fluid in our collapsed lungs
You can tell we were starved to death
By our stomachs devoid of food
You can tell we were tortured to death
By the torture instruments lying in the prisons
You can tell we cry out for justice
By the voices of our living brethren

By the thousands we have been killed
By the thousands in death we speak out
So you can bear witness to the atrocities
Committed by the murderous Chinese
Against the innocent Tibetan people

What deadline to surrender?? Tibetan should set deadline for Han chinese to leave Tibet. Chinese should go back to their own country.

Subject: Not communal
Mar 15 2008 08:11 PM

Excuse me, I have noticed that the media is trying to give the protests in Tibet a a communal look. Excuse me you fine journalists, this is not a tension between ethnic Tibetans and Hans or Muslims. This is a call for national unity, a cal for independence. So please do not try to play it down by making it look like a riot created for communal reasons. And yes, it was not the Tibetan youths who attacked the police as RFA reports. It was a jump of a desperate dog as we say in Tibetan. It was a peaceful march which turned violent after police appeared on the scene. I would like to request the translators at RFA to be really careful in their work.

We all revere men like His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who preach and practice nonviolence. But for many of us, and clearly for the people in Tibet, passivity in the face of atrocity is no longer an option.

In America, the success of Dr Martin Luther King Jr was largely enabled by men like Malcolm X, who said "If your people point their guns at us, I'm not going to tell my people not to point their guns back."

Human beings, when faced with lawlessness and atrociy in their society, have the inherent right to protect their lives and dignity with appropriate means. Where nonviolence is ineffective...where the world turns a blind eye to a people's struggle...this people possess the right to point guns back at the oppressors.

This is not to advocate violence but to confirm the right of the Tibetan people to choose whatever necessary means will protect their faith, culture, dignity, and lives. The rest of the complacent world, who do nothing for Tibet, do not possess the right to open their mouths on this matter!

As much as I am saddened to see Lhasa erupt in violence, I am more heartened to see the spirit of the Tibetan people rising from the flames. Tibetans will resist the Chinese oppressors to the last!

And as far as this talk of protecting informers, I don't think China is capable of that!
