I don't need to see it.  I'm aware of the brutality China inflicted on Tibet.

?Pales into insignificance with what the US has twice done to China's neighbours. And indeed, was doing right at the same time as China decided it wanted Tibet made a full part of China.

I came across this at ABC News:

In August, police broke up a brief protest outside the Chinese embassy in Hanoi over the operations of a Chinese survey vessel in the disputed waters.

Vietnam has repeatedly accused the vessel and its escorts of violating its sovereignty, and has demanded China remove its ships from the area. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-14/abominable-vietnamese-cinemas-nine-dash-line-south-china-sea/11601104

Proof positive, surely, that the Vietnamese lost their war of independence and are now totally colonised by the US.

China is far less brutal to its own citizens than Israel is in Occupied Territory.

International human rights groups, working with figures inside Tibet who aim to expose these killings internationally, will gather in Geneva in November for the UN hearing.

“The usage of live ammunition against peaceful Tibetan protestors does exist and it is also disproportionate,” Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay, the head of Tibet’s government-in-exile, told The Diplomat. “This is clearly in violation of international law,” said the prime minister, a former research fellow at prestigious Harvard Law School who wrote his graduate thesis on Buddhism and Human Rights.

Tsering Tsomo, executive director of the Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy, described the serial shootings of Tibetan protesters as “crimes against humanity.” She said the rights center has amassed powerful evidence that Chinese armed police consistently use overwhelming force to crush pacifist dissent in the former Buddhist kingdom.

In one assault on August 12 of last year, witnesses reported that troops fired into an assembly of protesters who were calling for the release of a detained religious and cultural leader in the village of Kardze; four of the 10 demonstrators who were shot were also arrested.

Denied medical treatment for their bullet wounds, each of these captured protesters died over the course of the next five days, Tsomo said.

You're doing much worse to two million people you beat from their homes, BM.

Remember your Wizop induction - you are encouraged to bring up and condemn all forms of racist oppression - but you must not, under any circumstances, confront the good people.

<EDIT> meant to go to our esteemed Wizop.
