Spare us Chinese propaganda on Tibet

by Visakha Kawasaki, Kandy, Sri Lanka, The Buddhist Channel, March 30, 2009

Dear Sirs, please spare us the official Chinese propaganda.

It's painful enough to contemplate fifty years of Chinese subjegation of Tibet without having to read how much money the Chinese are spending on repairs. (Labrang Monastery to witness biggest maintenance in 300 years/Xinhua/March 26, 2009).

Remarks about "integrating the wisdom Tibetan, Han, and Mongolian," "religious culture," "a better environment to study Buddhism," "maintaining religious harmony and political stability," and "protection of Tibetan folk culture and cultural relics and sites"   merely add insult to deep injury.
