A FREE TIBET: FREEDOM FOR WHOM?
Recently the U.S. media has portrayed a shocking Chinese army crackdown on peaceful protests by Buddhist monks seeking freedom and democracy in Tibet. But a closer look reveals violent riots against ethnic Han Chinese residents by Tibetan separatists, supported by the U.S. and other imperialist governments. Many U.S. progressives and liberals are supporting the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan opposition to the People's Republic of China. Also supporting this campaign are George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, the CIA and every other pro-imperialist government and media outlet. The majority of people in China, along with many in Tibet, oppose this U.S.-supported movement.
What are the real aspirations of the leaders of the “Free Tibet” movement? How does this struggle relate to the international situation? Who is the Dalai Lama and what are his ties to U.S. imperialism? Hear a Marxist analysis of the current struggle in Tibet, as well as the history of Tibet under the old feudal theocracy and its development since the 1949 Chinese Revolution.
