A diffrent video view of Tibet



What’s going on in Tibet is an interesting view of our own society's - this video highlights a valued view you wont hear in the western media. We in the rich world romanticize far away peasants while repressing those closer to home. Shorly a discussen point, this video was watched more than a million and half times and has more that 100K comments and rated nearly 20,000 times at 4/5 must be a strong popular feeling out there…

So china is made up of many regions and is older than Australia and the USA...er so what gives it the right to thrash Tibetan culture, arrest activists and supress any form of alternative media?

Hamish- you may think you are be giving an alternative view on Tibet but this is just Chinese propaganda bullshit.

The point am making is that this is a veiled point of view about us in the west - am only commenting about Tibet as a side issue, as the film brings up truths that are uncomfortable for us - we need to answer these if we aren't to be hypercritical. And our media isent - this is the point am making.
