Des témoignages provenant de Lhassa indiquent que le samedi 29 mars, d’autres manifestations sont survenues dans la ville, coïncidant probablement avec la visite « guidée » de diplomates étrangers dans la capitale tibétaine.

C’est littéralement une gifle dans la figure des démocraties occidentales, elles qui aimeraient bien que la crise s’estompe pour ne plus avoir à peser entre les relations commerciales avec la Chine et la protection des droits de l’homme. L’Union européenne, en réunion le 28 mars, a rejeté l’idée d’un boycott de la cérémonie d’ouverture des Jeux de Pékin. Seules la Pologne et la République tchèque, ayant vécu des décennies sous la botte d’un régime totalitaire communiste, ont indiqué qu’elles n’enverraient aucun responsable à la cérémonie.

Un petit message pour vous politiciens et diplomates : le casse-tête est loin d’être résolu. Les manifestations peuvent surgir à tout moment, comme la répression.

Voici différentes sources.

Radio Free Asia :

KATHMANDU—Witnesses in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, say fresh protests erupted there on Saturday afternoon despite a massive Chinese police and paramilitary presence there.
Witnesses told RFA’s Tibetan service that several hundred Tibetans rallied around 2 p.m. on March 29, beginning in the area near Center Beijing Road. Shops near the central post ofice on Lhasa Youth Road were closed, as security forces surrrounded the Tibetan residenitial areas in Barkhor and Kama Kunsang, Ramoche, and the Jokhang temple.
« People were running in every direction, » one witness said. « It was a huge protest and people were shouting. »
Another source who also declined to be identified reported seeing « fistfights » but she didn’t give details.
The protest continued for several hours but no further details were immediately available.
« The local government is now sending mass text messages using local cell phone companies to spread the word that the situation is now under control and people shouldn’t be influenced by divisive-sounding news and gossip, » another source said.
The March 29 protest coincided with a day-long visit to lhasa by foreign diplomats, who came at the invitation of the Chinese authorities. It also follows a closely scripted visit by foreign reporters.

BEIJING—Chinese security forces sealed off parts of Lhasa on Saturday and Tibet’s government-in-exile said it was investigating reports of fresh protests, weeks after the city was shaken by an anti-government riot.

The reports coincided with a visit by a group of diplomats, who were led on a closely guarded tour of the city that has been at the heart of unrest throughout China’s ethnic Tibetan regions just months before the opening of the Beijing Olympics.

« We don’t know how many people, but it seems it’s quite a lot of people, » Tenzin Taklha, a spokesman for the Dalai Lama said of the events in Lhasa. « I think it’s timed with the visit of the diplomats. »

The London-based International Campaign for Tibet said it had heard from three sources that security forces had surrounded Lhasa’s main temples, Jokhang and Ramoche. Lire tout l’article >>

Vidéoclip de la chanson Set Them Free, de Randall Effner.

Paroles :

I hear the chimes of freedom ring again
I heard them once before when they were blowin’ in the wind
The Chinese people walk in chains, they’re longing to be free
It’s time to tell the world the truth about the CCP (Chinese Communist Party)

I’d like to paint a picture in this song,
About what it’s like in China if you practice Falun Gong,
Or if you are a Christian or you’re for democracy
They’ll put you in a prison cell and throw away the key.

Set them free! set them free! set them free! set them free!
Set them free! set them free! set them free! set them free!

The labor camps are like a living hell
Where you’re beaten, starved and brainwashed and there’s
nowhere to appeal
There is no law or justice, there is just the CCP
Who hide their evil deeds behind a cloak of secrecy.

The free world should stand up for liberty
But now we sell out human rights to buy a cheap TV,
We see slavery and torture and we turn our head aside
I’d rather spend a little more than pay for genocide.

The world will not forget the Berlin Wall
And how the people danced with joy, just to see it fall
The Chinese leaders shake with fear remembering
that day
They know their time is almost up and soon they’ll
have to pay.

The blood red dragon can no longer fly
Nine swords have pierced its armor and it looks
about to die
Now millions of its members have renounced it publicly
The world will be a better place without the CCP.
