The Tibet government in exile indicates that, in the 30 years between 1949 and1979, the number of Tibetans killed, beaten to death, died in detention, and starved to death reached 1.2 million people. The pro-communist Ngapoi Ngawang Jigme estimated that the casualties are not that high, but he also admitted that the number is at least around 300,000 to 400,000.
After nearly 30 years of so-called reform and "open" policy, today in Tibet almost all full-time, administrative jobs are taken by Han Chinese. In rapidly modernizing Lhasa, almost all the good local jobs are in the hands of Han Chinese.
Many of those who are so indignant concerning national sovereignty questions love to say that such and such place is "Chinese territory since ancient times." They do not care when this "ancient times" calculation started; neither do they pay attention to when the concept of "China" was established. On the Tibet question, they pretend not to have heard that the Dalai Lama has been saying for several decades that he "only seeks autonomy, and does not pursue independence."
In any nation there is a process where the concepts of sovereignty, territory, and borders begin to form. This involves an evolution of history, the attitudes of the people, and competitions in the political arena. Nowhere in the world is "since ancient times" invariable.
The map of today's China evolved over the past few millennia, in a much diversified way. Changes in political power resulted in changes in the territory. Obviously, in order to determine and discuss an area's political shape, social system and lifestyle, one must consider the fundamental factors of historical evolution, cultural norms, and the people's attitudes and so on. But among these factors, internationally, the people's wish is becoming the most important factor.
The despotic, cruel nature of governance in the Han areas of China is even more pronounced in Tibetan areas. The Chinese Communist Party's control over local language, culture, religious belief, environment, ecology, and even survival amounts to simple, brutal persecution.
We must ask those in Canada who profess that they must guard the unity of the motherland: who do they think the Tibetans are? Do they respect Tibetans? Do they understand the Tibet culture and Buddhist religion? Do they deeply love Tibetan rivers and mountains? Are they concerned about Tibetan living conditions, freedoms and human rights?
These critics use Tibetans' miseries to bolster their own concept of Greater China's power. They are like the pride-filled male offspring of a rich and powerful family who have no respect for challenges faced by ordinary people.
For decades the Chinese government has employed an information blockade, the rewriting and distortion of history and brute force to terrorize and control Chinese society. Again and again, when required by political circumstances, they have persuaded successive generations of Chinese people to help them maintain their political power and benefits.
In fact, in the nearly sixty years since the Chinese Communist Party gained political power, from the first generation of leader MAO Zedong, second-generation DENG Xiaoping, third generation JIANG Zemin, to the present fourth generation of HU Jintao, one can say that each and leader was, in every sense of the word, a traitor. They used their power to sell off one quarter of China's precious territory – more than 3 million square kilometers. This area that was sold is one hundred times as great as Taiwan's land mass.
They also secretly continue the sale of China's land. Over the past several years, the boundary of the northern part of China was redrawn once more by JIANG Zemin with the assistance of HU Jintao. The Chinese government transferred to Russia an area equivalent to thirty-nine Taiwan territories.
The demonstrators in the centre of Toronto showed their patriotism and indignation. With tears flowing freely, they pledged to fight to the death to guard the motherland's territorial integrity, and firmly oppose splitting China. But did they say anything about the Chinese Communist Party's selling off the Motherland? If they didn't, they are clearly currying favor with the powerful and are guilty of hypocrisy.
These new/old Red Guards, with their ignorance, bias and hatred, surrounded by a sea of red Chinese Communist Party flags, have once again created black sorrow among the Chinese people.
