Chinese authorities are continuing the violent crackdown on Tibetans in all parts of Tibet using military force. China has begun executing plans to shut down schools and hospitals and arbitrary arrests of Tibetans in Tibetan capital Lhasa and Karze (Ch:Ganzi) County, Karze “Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture,” Sichuan province, eastern Tibet.The violent crackdown on Tibetan protesters since 10 March this year in Tibet has left 219 Tibetans dead and 1294 injured as of 31 October.

Around 5,600 people are still under arrest or detention and more than 1000 are reportedly missing, reliable sources in Tibet reported.

According to reliable information received from Tibet, on the morning of 22 November, a group of Tibetans consisting of 4 nuns and an unknown number of youth raised Tibet independence slogans around Bharkor Square in Lhasa. As soon as the protest began, the protesters were severely beaten up and taken into custody by the Chinese police. The identities of the protesters could not be ascertained.

Similarly, since the beginning of November, some Tibetans were arbitrarily picked up from their homes in Lhasa by a joint team of Chinese secret agents and officials of the Public Security Bureau. The reason behind those arrests still remains unclear and those arrested continue to remain in protective custody.

Plans to shut down private schools and hospitals in Tibet

Moreover, according to reliable information, the concerned departments in Lhasa have started monitoring private Tibetan schools, with the authorities planning to shut down many of the schools.

Similarly, the Chinese authorities are keeping close vigil on private schools and small health centers in Karze, Tibet. The campaign aims to hinder those dedicated Tibetans in carrying out welfare projects for the local residents and suspect political motives behind such activities.

On 1 December, reliable sources in Tibet reported about a decree to shut down the most prestigious and recognized educational and health institutions in Karze. These include the hospital and school owned by Khangsar Kyabgyon Tulku and Lamdag Tulku hospital and Karze Intermediary Tibetan language school.

Expressing deep concern and disappointment, parents and other Tibetan residents, both young and old, have voluntary approached the authorities and submitted petitions appealing for them not to close schools and hospitals.

Large numbers of armed security forces have kept the whole region under constant surveillance.

Moreover, the authorities convene meetings in every monastic institution under the pretext of preventing peaceful demonstrations by Tibetans. During the meetings, pre-emptive measures are being issued, such as the government’s supervision on renovation of monastery complexes. All the monks and nuns are ordered not to cause riots, for which they are required to register for a new book, exiled Tibetan official media reported.

On 09 December, more than 300 Chinese activists, including lawyers, writers, scholars and artists, issued an online statement, urging greater freedoms for Tibet and Tibetan people and an end to China’s one-party rule. Reports say the Chinese authorities have detained two of the signatories before the statement was even issued.
