On 7th October 1950, China invaded Tibet. A few years later, the systematic attacks by the Chinese Army against every element of the Tibetan culture and religion led to wide popular uprising and to a deep armed resistance. On 10th March 1959, the resistance of the Tibetan people culminated in a general uprising in Lhasa against the Chinese invaders. From that time on, the genocide and the culturcide - or ethnocide, initiated in the mid-fifties has been developed and has now reached an unprecedented width: 1 200 000 Tibetans have been exterminated by the Chinese (one fourth of the initial population). In 1974, the Tibetan military resistance stopped its guerrilla operations from the Kingdom of Lo, on the North of Nepal. The last twenty years saw the development of underground resistance against the Chinese occupation in Tibet and training of Tibetan radical groups abroad.
Although the idea of founding the present group was already in mind for few years, it became a reality when Dta-Wa-E, the Dark Khampa, founder of the group Raksha Mancham met Tibetan radical activists (based in uncontrolled mountaineous areas of Myanmar (Burma)) in the high plateau of Libya two years ago. That explains why that record involves determinant intervention of these Tibetan extremists with some help provided by members of the famous group Raksha Mancham.
The aim of that record is to denounce the reality of the genocide commited by the Cinese in Tibet. As the people involved wanted the denounciation to be unquestionable, they decided to use parts of the most unquestionable source on that subject (even if these facts were also documented by plenty of other reliable sources): the reports established by the International Commission of jurists (a non-governmental organization which has Consultative Status - Category 'B', with the United Nations Economic and Social Council) on the basis of the inquiries made by its legal inquiry committee on the question of Tibet. As a result of that, it is the very first time in the history of humanity that the basis of some recordings is an official report conceived to foster understanding of and respect for the Rule of Law and Human Rights.
But even considering the very high value of the report published by the International Commission of Jurists, they wanted to put a special emphasis on the direct testimonies of those who suffered the dramatic reality of the Chinese genocide againsts the Tibetans: one can find in the booklet of the Compact Disc transcriptions of these testimonies as well as drawings made by Tibetans who escaped the Chinese extermination camps from their testimonies.
The realization of the present record also implied a lot of investigations and researches worldwide in order to get rare documents, hard-to-find pictures, confidential reports, censored publications....
As the Tibetan civilization-the only surviving antique civilization-is now threatened of total annihilation because of the Chinese policy in Tibet, it was decided to add some suggestions of actions in favour of Tibet. But everyone is invited to think more about the way anyone can personally act to contribute to save Tibet as everyone's own resposibility is involved in the issue of that situation. We have all plenty of things to learn from the Tibetan civilization and it will be completely destroyed within a few years if there are no changes in the situation prevailing today. So everybody must act to save Tibet....Now!
This time 1 200 000 Dead Tibetans was a record, next time it will be a stage performance...or a military resistance operation against the Chinese occupation of Tibet!!!!
