Since March 10, 2008, there have been an unprecedented number of protests against Chinese rule all across the Tibetan areas. Chinese crackdown in Tibet have already led to around a 100 deaths, hundreds of injured and wounded, and mass arrests in the region. His Holiness the Dalai Lama had urged Tibetans inside Tibet to renounce violence and called for an international inquiry into the events.
Kunleng TV will examine the possible causes of Tibetan resentment towards Chinese rule, how China has failed to win the hearts and minds of Tibetans after 50 years of occupation, and how the uprising may impact the upcoming Olympics. Kunleng has invited Mr. Tsegyam, the representative at the Office of Tibet in Taipai, and Mr. Jampal Monlam, deputy director of Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy to discuss the topic.
