tibet

i visited tibet less than two years ago. despite the growing dominance of the han chinese community, the tibetans still lived relatively peacefully, albeit as the poor cousins.

right now the capital lhasa and other towns in tibet are in lockdown as riots between ethnic tibetans and chinese occur.  apparently no foreigners especially journalists are being let in and tourists are being told to leave.

i dont admit to knowing much about human rights in china, however, from my own eyes,  the way that tibetans have been treated is not right.
