Chinese government banned tourism to Tibet after two Tibetan Monks self immolated in May protesting against Chinese occupation of Tibet and Dalai Lama’s exile. The situation in there is getting worse. Around 30 people set themselves on fire since 2011 in protest. The Chinese governments actions will make it worse. Tibet should not be kept away from people. I can’t believe you can’t travel there anymore. It’s horrible.
I signed the petition to stand up for Tibet and would urge everyone here to do the same. It’s our spiritual heritage and some fucked up government think they can take it away.
There is also an action to submit photographic protest you can find details here.
Dalai Lama will visit Inverness later this month. The tickets for his talk sold out all over the U.K. It seems an irony that although he is so popular around the world situation in Tibet is only getting worse. It makes me very sad.
