Timestream: Tibetan Genocide

Genocide Watch staff have published the twenty-seventh Timestream in a series of critical genocides in the world.

This Timestream covers the genocidal tactics used by China since 1959 to erode Tibetan sovereignty and culture, including religious persecution, attacks on traditional ways of life, and encouraging the movement of Han Chinese into Tibet. Destruction of monasteries, the expulsion of monks and nuns, and restrictions on the use of the Tibetan language are the means by which China seeks to undermine Tibetan identity. MIlitarization and mass threats are employed to eliminate any resistance to Chinese authority. China seeks to fully incorporate Tibet into its territory to secure its access to the mineral-rich region.
