I was in Lhasa less than a month ago and it's pathetic what the chinese are doing in the name of "tibetanization." Yuthog Lam in Lhasa is just one example of many recent actions taken by the chinese government and their poor attempt to try and portray a "new, proper" picture of tibet.
The fact that there wasn't a single tibetan worker among all the construction taking place was sad to say the least. It seems that the chinese government is willing to do anything and everything now to create a more "tibetan" looking area so they can appeal to the foreigners, world org's etc...and ofcourse it isn't the tibetans that will benefit from these "tibetanization" projects but the Han chinese.
The construction of the railroad and other modernization projects in the TAR region are deceptive because everywhere i went, most of the restaurants, shops, and businesses were all owned by Han people. the increasing Han population within tibet is so common that the fear of tibetans becoming a minority in our own country seems to be only a few yrs away.
