Subject: Non-violent resistance
Jun 23 2015 07:48 PM

A recent study showed that historically non-violent resistance was more effective than violent revolution or insurrection.

The reality is that Tibetans cannot win a war against China. We would also alienate many supporters in China & around the world. The Chinese military is too numerous & powerful.

But mass non-violent resistance can be successful & has been successful in other countries.

Most Britons supported colonial rule over India pre-1945 but opinions changed after Gandhi's non-violent movement. Most Americans supported the Vietnam War and were against the Civil Rights Act but opinions changed after non-violent anti-war and pro-civil rights mass movements in the USA.

The problem right now is the Chinese people are largely ignorant of what is going on inside Tibet. They believe the CCP propaganda but they have no other source of news about Tibet. Media freedom in Tibet & China can enlighten the Chinese people & turn public opinion in favor of Tibetan freedom. But the movement must remain non-violent to effectuate such change.
