Tibet's Gift to the Library of Congress, and Revelations from the 2008 Crackdown

Thanks to Danny Fisher for the heads-up on these two Tibet-related items. The first is cheerful, the second disturbing:

  • TibetCustom.com: "The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. organised an event on Monday (19 July) during which the Librarian, Dr James Billington, received three gifts to the Library from His Holiness the Dalai Lama from his Special Envoy Lodi Gyari." Read more.
  • The Guardian: "Chinese security forces fired indiscriminately on demonstrators and brutally beat detainees during unrest in Tibetan areas in 2008, alleges a report released today by Human Rights Watch." Read more.

There is no interest in human rights for wogs after all. That is why I have taken the position that the NKT/WSS phoney 'sangha' is inherently racist.
