Really?

Why don't you link a single article from a western journalist in tibet then?

It is possible. However what isn't possible is to link an article from a single Western Journalist in Tibet who wasn't accompanied 24 hours by a state security officer and told specifically where he could go and who he could talk to.

Just one single article from one of the MILLIONS of people who work in western journalism. Can you do it?

No. So it looks like you just got caught lying. Again. You've lost so much face that you can't compete with John Merrick.

3 years posting on this forum... and your narrow mind has yet to learn...

you make a stupid statement then I correct it... and then you move on...

over 8 million tourist visited Tibet in 2011 and that number is increasing by 27 percent a year

...

no doubt you will just move on and talk about how China shut down Tibet in 2008 because of riots...keeping reporter out

but ill save you the trouble...

your so narrow minded you probably either dont care to know... or just dont care to be truthful...

if you used half your brain and did a news search you will realize the what sparked off the Tibetans rioting in 2008

was a dispute with a Ethnic Minority who happened to be Muslims... and their control of certain areas of the economy....

of course that dosent fit in with your narrative as the Tibetans being persecuted...

when they are persecuting another ethnic minority themselves

Yes, the CCP's lackeys and paid liars will of course tell you everything is just swell in Tibet.

But everyone else on earth as well as the United Nations details a VERY DIFFERENT PICTURE:

Authorities must end their crackdown on Tibetan Buddhism

Last Update 30 September 2013

In a joint report (also read the executive summary) published today for the People’s Republic of China’s second Universal Periodic Review, FIDH and ICT urge Chinese authorities to end their on-going crackdown on Tibetan Buddhism. The report highlights numerous violations of principles set in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as a result of increasingly systematic measures set by the government since 2008.

Following the overwhelmingly peaceful protests that swept across Tibet in March and April 2008, the most tragic evidence of the deteriorating environment for Tibetan Buddhism has been a wave of self-immolations, which has caused as of today more than 120 Tibetan deaths, including of students, monks, nuns, young mothers, farmers and nomads. Many of those who self-immolated clearly sought to underline the religious context of their acts: some have died with their hands clasped in prayer, while many self-immolated beside a stupa (reliquary building), a monastery or a nunnery.

“Tibetan political protest has been peaceful for decades, in spite of an ever-increasing pressure on all aspects of Tibetan culture and society. This unprecedented wave of self-immolations is certainly the result of a peak in Chinese crackdown on Tibetan Buddhism. The recent repressive measures combine propaganda, re-education, administrative regulation and punishment”, said Vincent Metten, ICT’s EU Policy Director.

...
ICT and FIDH report the following:

A direct correlation between legal measures tightening state control over Tibetan Buddhism and the self-immolations
New and more oppressive measures such as a ruling that reincarnations of “living Buddhas” who do not have Chinese government approval are now "illegal or invalid"
An intensified anti-Dalai Lama campaign across Tibet as Chinese authorities seek to replace loyalty to the Dalai Lama in Tibetan hearts and minds with allegiance to the Chinese Party-state, and in doing so, to undermine Tibetan national identity at its roots.
A deepening political (‘patriotic’) education campaign extended beyond the monasteries to civil society
A stepped-up presence of Party cadres and government officials in monasteries and an increased military presence at religious festivals when they are permitted

Tibetan religious activities and beliefs that are seen as posing a threat to the authority of the Party are criminalized and equated with “separatism”. This has already led to the arrest and detention of many Tibetans, including monks and nuns. FIDH and ICT are particularly concerned about the welfare and safety of three senior monks from Drepung monastery, who were detained in April 2008. Two of them have subsequently received life sentences, after hundreds of monks from the monastery were at the forefront of peaceful protests in Lhasa beginning on March 10, 2008.

“The PRC should allow all Tibetans, including monks and nuns, to exercise their cultural and religious rights without hindrance, re-assess policies that undermine Tibetan linguistic, religious, and cultural traditions, creating grievances and fostering unrest, and respect freedom of religion and belief for all”, said Karim Lahidji, FIDH president.

Well done. You finally managed a post that wasn't cut and paste spam. Sadly, it was really really stupid.

So why don't you link a single article from a journalist who was free to go where he wanted and report from Tibet. Just one.

Or you can tell us how many hotels there are in the world famous place that Billions of people would like to visit.

Failing that you could tell us how many of those 8 million tourists you claim visited tibet came from foreign countries.

if you read just one of the articles dummy.....you will find at least 150,000 tourist a year....from outside China travel to Tibet...

and you want a western journalist to have a fair objective view on Tibet?

give me a break that like me trotting out a Chinese State owned paper...and talking about fair and unbalanced...

just look at how Tibet is trotted out in the Media and movies...

until you admit the truth that...what your country did in Tibet when you colonized it

that ordinary Tibetans... were slaves...

the Tibetan Monks owned land...and raped little boys...

and TIbet wasnt the perfect Utopia it was before China took Tibet back into the fold...

then you are just a hypocrite

especially with your British history... when it comes to the world...

and closer to home Scotland and Ireland... northern Ireland ring a bell hypocrite?

im sure you can find a few Irish still wanting their freedom even though the IRA has stopped bombing your cities...

we have gone over this before retard...

if the Tibetan people wanted to rise up they could have done... it when the CIA funded Tibetan Elites who tried to go back into Tibet in the 1950s...

even the Dollar Lama has said he wants greater autonomy... not separation...

probably knows if they were to separate... HAN Chinese would still come and economically dominate the Ethnic Tibetans... and they would get no special rights or subsidizes from the Chinese government like they do today

just like the Han Chinese are going over to the UK and pushing out white trash like you...

I am sure there is a deep seeded resentment... as you realize your children and their children and so on will not be able to compete....

150,000 per year from outside China?

So when you tried to claim there were 8 million tourists a year, it was in fact a big smokescreen?

Just like the smokescreen you just tried to put up suggesting there isn't a single western journalist on the face of the planet who would give a fair report on Tibet.

Besides that idea being utterly stupid, I didn't even ask for an example of fair journalism. Just a single example of ANY western journalist being allowed to visit tibet and interview the general public.

You even failed to do that.

Or how about giving a valid reason for China not encouraging tourism to tibet when it could be worth billions of dollars, or investing huige amounts of money in keeping people out of tibet or making sure if they do go they aren't allowed to talk to the public?

The CCP policy on Western visitors and press to Tibet costs them billions. What is it you are pretending they find to be worth that investment?

go back and read "I CANT READ" what you claimed...as to who was allowed to go to Tibet...

I showed you statistics where 8 million tourist....(now 10 million tourist) were visiting in 2011

then you asked for the exact number of foreign tourist I gave you the exact number...

go back and read what your claim was...

racist white trash... wants the world to believe... 9 million Chinese go to Tibet see the horried conditions Tibetans are placed under and just pretend it dosent happen...

racist white trash... dosent even bother to go there... but talks shiet about it...

until you admit what your country did there... and in the world...until you admit

what life was like for Tibetans...

if they want to go back to how it was... tell them to go to the next CCP official they find give all their belongings to that person... get down on their hands and knees and grovel...

truth of the matter is... the Tibetans you encounter in the west are their elites... ones who fleeced their country and ran for it... maybe you are one of them wants to go back to how things were so you can rape little boys...

all you are doing is calling the Kettle black.... mr. Pot

you want an article on tibet... from a Westerner just type in "my trip to Tibet"
