Xinhuanet published a signed editorial by Zhang Jiangao on Apr.27, condemning that the poor show presented recently by the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) is nothing but another ugly trick attempting to mislead public opinions, mar the truth and deceive the world people. Under the disguise is their covert but vile intention to split the country.
TYC has long been seeking the so-called 'Tibet Independence', which is a hard fact; therefore, the so-called 'peace and non-violence' as they fervently preached is only a fig leaf to cover up their disgrace, and what they have conducted thus far is thoroughgoing terrorist activities and a real slap in their own face.
Immediately after it was established in India in1970, TYC alleged it 'regards violence and terrorist activities as its primary tasks to achieve Tibet's independence', and its ex-president once said, 'we have to achieve our goal by any means, be it violent or non-violent.' The Lhasa riots are actually the 'masterpieces' premeditated by the TYC.
More absurdly, the TYC has never ceased its criminal activities for more than 30 years on end since its establishment, but the 'golden opportunity' they have been daydreaming has never descended upon them. They tried any possible means to rally the support from the international anti-China forces to secede Tibet Autonomous Region from china, however, their despicable attempts have evidently proved to be abortive, as China's strength is growing peacefully and increasingly, and Tibetan people and all ethnic groups in China are increasingly united and even more closed knit than ever before.
They mistook the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games as 'a faint glimpse of hope,' or a slim chance to 'achieve their goal'. For this, they not only set forth the slogan--a life and death war against Olympics—instigating unrest and bloodshed, but called on 'Tibetans everywhere to involve in the war'.
On January 4th and 5th 2008, seven 'Tibet Free' Organizations held a press conference in New Delhi and released the so-called 'Tibetan Uprising Movement' Proposals. When failing to get what they expected, they plotted a series of attacks, looting and burning which took away innocent people's lives and property.
The day after March 14th, instead of mourning for victims, the TYC couldn't wait to hold a meeting in India and later passed the decision on 'armed struggles' by setting up guerilla. The head of TYC claimed that 'the violence has aroused the combative awareness in the areas inhabited by Tibetans, and it is a prelude to a large-scale combat this year'.
When the truth about the Mar.14 Lhasa riots was finally brought to light, the TYC members still desperately carried on their violence and terrorist activities, meanwhile, they began to fabricate lies to mislead people and went out of their way to slander China and demonize the lawful actions China has taken to restore security and social order in Tibet.
Facts speak louder than words. Whatever the TYC has been doing to denigrate China unveils its true face of terror to the whole world. The terrorist organization, TYC and its destructive deeds, going against human conscience and social development, will be cast aside by the peace-loving people.
China' central government is determined to join the efforts with its different ethnic groups of people as well as the world people to safeguard stability and unification, successfully host the Summer Olympics and achieve win-win progress with the international community. The Chinese people will face up to all kinds of tests and difficulties, and dedicated to the country's peaceful development, they will hand-in-hand together to greet a more splendid future.
