Beijing-Vetted Tibetan Monks Turn Against Beijing

Chennai Centre For China Studies, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

"Beijing-Vetted Tibetan Monks Turn Against Beijing, B.Raman, C3SPaper No.142 dated April 7, 2008. After a relative lull of about nine days from March 19 to 27, 2008, there has again been unrest in Tibet and the adjoining Tibetan-inhabited areas of Sichuan, Gansu and Qinghai in the form of public demonstrations by the Tibetans and clashes with the security forces when they tried to disperse them. 2. Since March 27, 2008, the anti-Beijing and pro-Dalai Lama incidents have been more frequent and widespread in Sichuan and Gansu than in Tibet. [...] It is the younger monks ordained under the strict supervision of the Communist Party and the Public Security Bureaux after 1979, who have been in the forefront of the demonstrations and violent incidents. They have been effectively networking with the local members of the TYC [the Tibetan Youth Congress - ed.], which has reportedly set up many sleeper cells. 12. The Chinese authorities have been adamant that they would take the Olympi!
 c Torch to Tibet whatever be the consequences. They intend taking the torch twice. On the first occasion in the last week of April and the first week of May, it will be taken to the top of the Everest. It will then be taken to other Chinese provinces. It will be brought back to Tibet between June 19 and 21, 2008, and taken across Lhasa and some other towns. A further escalation of violence can be expected during these two periods." - b.raman
