The Dalai Lama on Tibet and China

His holiness the Dalai Lama recently spoke about how he is loosing hope of progress with the Chinese government on the Tibet issue that we have spoken about quite often. The Olympics went by, a testing time for the Chinese, but there was no respite for the Tibetans, many who lost their lives in the protest.

China’s Yin Affecting its Young

The Chinese seem to be having a spot of bad luck at the moment, and a last few moments as well, when the Tibetan protests started off during the planing stages of the Olympics they were met with brute force, murdered, vanished without a trace and clamped down unable to practice their own culture.

The Olympics, China and Tibet

I use Google everyday and if you have used Google to search for anything in the past two weeks, you would have noticed Google’s logo, which reflects the Beijing Olympics, with a different sport each day.

The Lives of Tibetans in Exile

With the 2008 Olympic games hosted in China, Tibet seems to be the center of attraction, the Chinese have been occupying Tibet after the invasion in 1951 just how America invaded Iraq in 2003 and are still occupying it.
