  • Of Course Tibet Should Be Free!!

    I am quite shocked and appalled that such a high percentage of posts here thinks Tibet should not be free. How can you talk about minerals and economics when people are being murdered for their beliefs? Freedom is a basic human right, it is as simple as that. The idea that China provides stability is lunacy! 1 million people are dead. Those that survive are in a desperate situation. China should be deeply ashamed, a culture so old should be more civilized, and the rest of us should boycott their products. Our only power is as consumers, sadly. FREE TIBET!!!

  • Yes it should!

    There are many nations in the world who separated because of different values, customs or cultural differences. Tibet wants to have the right to practice their religion "Buddhism" free of prosecution and they want different laws for their people. If a country refuses in majority and wants to be it's own nation, let it. China will still have a lot of land to themselves and they would be free of political upheaval and mass protesting from Tibet and the world will view China in a lot better light acknowledging their acceptance for understanding of their people. If they don't- there could be greater consequences in dictating a country to stay when it wants to be free. Free Tibet!

  • Yes It should

    Tibet has been an independent country for years until China decided to invade it in the 1950s. The Tibetan people have a culture that is very different from that of the Chinese. China supports policies that try to indoctrinate Tibetans against their will into the machine that is China. Region in Tibet is taking a beating from the Chinese government as are many Tibetan practices. China even tries to send people of the Han race into Tibet in an attempt to indoctrinate Tibet even further.

  • China has no place in Tibet.

    China's occupation of Tibet was, plain and simple, an invasion. That Tibet was of not international relevance is the reason that this takeover was allowed to happen. In a fair and just world, Tibet would be permitted to regain its autonomy and the Dalai Lama would once again be its spiritual and governmental leader.

  • Freedom is our birthright

    We have our own language, own customs, own history, own habits, own religion etc.
    Only in freedom we can keep our identity! Beeing a poor independent country is better than beeing under the power of a chinese majority that is waiting to engulf our identity!
    I never believe, that china is willing to give us real autonomy, that's fairy tale...

  • Tibet belong too tibetan

    China is a criminal Government using SS and Mafiosi methods to keep to force people in their communist frame. Truth is Tibet got forcefully occupied and unlawfully annected and Tibetans suffer to not have the right to be Free Tibetans deciding independently over our life. China can not be trusted at all. An independent Tibet is the only guarantee for the survival of the authentic Tibetan Culture and Tibetan Identity.
    The question is superflue and can be manipulated by China with its Milliards of population. Independence of Tibet is imperative, it is the birthright of every Tibetan.
    Every Tibetan knows that he/she's not Chinese and that we are Buddhists and not Communists , that life for Tibetans was never as inhuman as it is under CChina's occupation. Never before a million Tibetans got killed ... Never as before Tibetans self immolated to protest a ruling government. The question if Tibet wants to come free from China concerns only Tibetan people . No matter what the world leaders say they have no rights on us, just possibilities ... Tibets future will be decided by Tibetans. As long their is Resistance to Chinaand an Independence movement holding up the Snow Lion flag, Tibetans have not surendered ... Ttuth can't be silenced and where Injustice is , there will be Resistance and Rebellion. INDEPENDENCE FOR TIBET! FREE TIBET FROM CHINA! CHINA OUT OF TIBET!

  • China is commiting Genocide against Tibet

    Many tibetans have died under Chinese rule. Tibet has it's own cultural identity, Religion, And people. Tibetan culture is being oppressed by Communist rule. Before we know it, Tibet will be gone and Tibetan culture will be wiped from this planet. The Chinese government is a horrible government, Akin to Stalinist USSR or Nazi Germany.

  • Tibet Should Be FREE!

    The Chinese claim that Tibet was belong to China 800 years, Well that wasn't true. Tibet itself wasn't in China's control until the 1950 invasion. Tibet still kept it own country flag, Currency, Stamps, Passport and military. Therefore Tibet is still consider an independent country, While the Chinese didn't want to admitted.

  • Tibet should be free!

    Tibet has built up a culture of it's own that can't just be infused into China. It will put it's old and developed culture in danger and many Tibetans can't risk it. They need their own identity in order to continue life in peace. When cultures were forced to be mixed together in the Middle East for example, Many decided that it couldn't go on and as a result it has become a war-ridden place.

  • All countries got their land from conquest

    I support Tibetan freedom as much as an American supports that Hawaii should be given back to the Polynesians or all off the US mainland should be given back to the Native Americans. Look at it, All the land that belongs to the United States is land taken from the original inhabitants by force. In fact, All territory owned by countries was pretty much conquered so there’s no point arguing over Tibet because it was conquered. In fact, If you say Tibet should be freed just because it was conquered, Then you might as well say the same for the land other countries acquired through conquest. You might as well say only the Native Americans should rule America and everyone else should leave. You might as well say Hawaii should be freed from the US and become its own country.

    Who said the Tibetans in China are being oppressed and not getting benefits from China? China is not pure Communism and western ideologies, Like capitalism, Do exist in the country. China also sends money to Tibet for development and infrastructure. Many say that China is trying to wipe out the Tibetan language and culture but China allows Tibetan to be an official language of Tibet. Tibetans in China also receive affirmative action benefits like minorities in the US and are not affected by the one child policy. Those special benefits are actually not available to Han Chinese.

    Also, Tibet has actually been part of China centuries before modern China and I’m talking about the Qing Dynasty. The Qing collapsed in 1911and China fell apart and it was a gradual process to reclaim all the lost territory, Including Tibet. It’s not that Tibet was always its own state until China came in 1950.

  • Tibet should not be free

    Tibet should not be free from China because Tibet is a small country and doesn't have the power to protect itself from the bigger country. Tibet has limited resources to build a stronger military. Without China's support, The bigger country will take control Tibet. Also, Tibet has been part of China for a long time.

  • Tibet should not be free of China.

    Tibet has been a part of China for many years. If Tibet leaves China there is a question of will Tibet be able to support itself without the help from China? If Tibet can support itself years ago, Why were they even apart of China now days? Isn't it just ironic?

  • Tibet should be free

    Tibet have their own culture, Language, And etc according to the first argument. Therefore, They should be free from China because they had their own history. Plus, Tibet is no longer under China's supervision and they should be able to continue develop their own way of life and not controlled by China.

  • Tibet should stay and be part of China

    No one can really win this debate but we should consider what is good for the majority of Tibetan. I believe some elites may benefit from leaving China but majority will suffer. I am not sure a referendum result would be if there were one. If it did pass, I think it would be another Brexit case.

  • There is no Tibet, only Xizang!!!

    Tibet is and will always be part of China. Those who escaped Xizang in 1959 were the nobilities. They had been the lords of Xizang for many years and treat the rest as slaves and animals. Tibetan Buddhism is very different from that in China and Japan because it had been modified to be used as a tool to manipulate Tibetans. Qing government couldn’t do a lot because the traffic back then was bad. But in 1950s when PLA entered Tibet, those lords had had the help from British to repel the liberation. And we all know that British had done many wrong deeds as the colonial empire. A modern Chinese government in Tibet would both mean the loss of lords’ privilege and western colonial power’s defeat in China. As a result those Tibetans has to escape to the European countries which had tried to colonize China since the Opium War.

  • Tibet has always been part of China for 800 years! Also, Western propaganda is biased.

    These dynasties have had Tibet for 800 years. Yuan, Ming, Qing. It's all China. Also, without China, they won't be able to support themselves. They should be independent if they can support themselves, BUT THEY CANT! Also, China is not communist, and has not persecuted as many as you think. Those are all lies by stupid American Propoganda. You just say that because it won't affect You. Shame on all people who say YES!

  • What tibet want should not be based on what westerners or dalai lama think they want.

    The great leap forward was a tragic in chinese history as well as human history. However, this does not mean tibetan now are suffering from china. RPC government worked hard to boost the economy or Tibetan area while trying their best to maintain the natural environment. Now tibetan can earn as much as they want without the interference of dalai lama. Don't forget Dalai Lama was a high ranking communist. The only reason later he supported tibet's "independence" is because he lost control over tibet (now it belongs to RPC) instead of his own. If you not sure, travel to tibet, ask if they want "independence from china" or ruled by dalai lama. And they'll tell you no.

  • It's a stupid idea

    Tibet is part of China. That's like saying Tasmania separating from Australia, or Hawaii from America. They're as they are for a reason; in that without the larger, stronger and richer country to support them, they'd be crushed under their own destitution, be snapped up by some other foreign power, or just collapse under it's own weight. The economy of Tibet is dominated by subsistence agriculture. Due to limited arable land, livestock raising is the primary occupation mainly on the Tibetan Plateau. Such a country can't support itself. Perhaps it is the just and fair thing for Tibet to be independent, but it wont work, so the argument is redundant.
