China Aims To Ramp Up Brainwashing Of Tibetans

The Chinese announced today that they would institute so-called “patriotic education” for Tibetan monks:

BEIJING, March 25 — China’s security chief called for stepping up “patriotic education” in Tibet’s monasteries, the state-run Tibet Daily said Tuesday, as prosecutors for the first time charged demonstrators in the largely peaceful, monk-led protests that later exploded into riots in the region.

Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu led the first high-level central government visit to Tibet since the riots broke out this month. In the face of international criticism of China’s crackdown, he stressed that the government would “fight an active publicity battle” and solicit the help of Communist Party cadres.

His call for broader “patriotic education” indicated the party would also move to exert greater control over religion in Tibet, requiring more Tibetans to accept the region as an inalienable part of China, denounce the Dalai Lama as a separatist and recognize the Chinese-appointed Panchen Lama.

Isn’t it about time that the world stopped treating the Butchers of Beijing as civilized people ?

    I would really like if some of you read another point of view about China. Don’t say they are doing the right thing, but even if it’s painful sometimes we should have the whole view to get a proper opinion.
