Political history of Tibet from the viewpoint of those opposed to the Chinese occupation of Tibet: http://www.tibet.com/WhitePaper/white1.html
Very very sad.
“The Chinese government will unwaveringly protect its national sovereignty and territorial integrity”
Yeah, like they know what that means. I can't believe they actually have words for that in the chinese language (integrity)
It's easy to condemn China's occupation of Tibet, but remember, China invaded Tibet because Tibet is a giant plateau overlooking China on which tanks could be amassed for an invasion. In fact, when China invaded Tibet it was facing an invading Indian Army.
Meanwhile the people who are shedding tears over the poor Tibetans have nothing to say about, say, the Kurds--the largest stateless nation in the world.
China confiscatin' Tibetan TV's...
China seizes TVs, satellite equipment in Tibetan area
Sat, Dec 29, 2012 - Chinese authorities have confiscated 3,000 TVs from monasteries in a heavily Tibetan part of the west of the country and dismantled satellite equipment that broadcast anti-China programs, prompted by Tibetan self-immolations in the region.
Are you trying to disparage all Chinese people? Wtf?

This is really sad and needless - China will never be respected if it continues this behaviour. Statistics show that 69% of Americans are concerned by China's human rights record. Typical Chinese government reaction by the way, this sort of abuse as well as censorship is going to come back to haunt them eventually.
