Question by theann: What is going on with the Tibet people?
I really don’t get what all this with Tibet. What are they doing to there people or what is everyone talking about
Answer by mishna83
It’s not what they are doing to their people, it’s what China is doing to the Tibetan people. They are technically a minority group belonging to China, but they are treated as second class citizens, limited rights, limited opportunities, limited access to education, etc. China claims this is not so, but I have lived in the Tibetan Autonomous Region and I have seen it first hand. The Chinese have an overly large military presence there and they use it whenever they feel the urge, meaning they tend to kill Tibetans every so often. They also have a resettlement plan where they force the Tibetan nomads to settle in places the Chinese government decides. They have another resettlement plan where they move Han Chinese into Tibetan territory and are forcing the Tibetans out.
