Tibet in 2012: A Year in Review


The year 2012 has been a tumultuous and a disturbing year for Tibet, as out of the total of 95 Tibetan self-immolation cases so far, 81 such incidence have occurred this year alone. As a result of it, China’s official rhetoric and propaganda against the self-immolation has intensified and also the year saw a major crackdown on Tibetan dissent inside Tibet. As the year 2012 draws closer, Table Talk invites Lhaka Kyinzom, Dharamsala based VOA Stringer and Lobsang Yeshi, Spokesperson of Kirti Monastery to reflect on some of the major Tibet related events of the year.
