CNA: China’s State-Run Media Attacked the Dalai Lama for Three Consecutive Days during the 60th Anniversary of Tibet’s Anti-Violence Event

The Tibet anti-violence event reached its 60th anniversary. On March 8, China’s state-run media, The Tibet Daily launched a series of articles on “Recognizing the Reactionary Essence of the 14th Dalai Lama,” directly attacking the Dalai Lama as the “head of the feudal serfdom system of the old Tibet’s joined politics and religion.” The article called him, “The head of the separatist reactionary camp” and “the head of the separatist activities.”

The article accused the Dalai Lama of selling himself out to the international anti-China forces to find a backing for Tibet’s independence and to carry out separatist activities under the banner of national religious culture and environmental protection.

The second series of commentary articles, published on March 9, pointed out that the Dalai Lama is “a loyal tool of the international anti-China forces” and declared that the international anti-China forces are doing their best to make full use of the Dalai Lama as a tool and do everything possible to support his separatist activities. They beautify his image politically, provide support financially, offer a communication platform on public opinion, and support armed rebellion militarily.

The third series of commentary articles published on the following day accused the Dalai Lama of being the ultimate source of the class, thought, and organization that has created social unrest in Tibet. The articles said that the Dalai Lama travels around the world, running around and working hard, all (for the purpose of) beautifying the feudal serf system and attempting to restore this system.
