"The young all have the same dream : to free Tibet. Some quickly forget this dream, convinced that there are some important things to do, like having a family, earning money, Career etc. Others, though, decide that it really is possible to make a difference in society and to shape the Nation we will hand on to future generations. "
Saving Earth ?
How can we be so arrogant?

The planet is, was and always will be stronger than us, We can't destroy it, if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing.

Why don't we start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?

Because saving the planet gives a sense of power, action and nobility. Whereas not letting the planet destroy us" might lead to feelings of despair and impotence, and to a realization of just how very limited our capabilities are.
The Chinese Invasion of Tibet:
In September 1949, Communist China, without any provocation, invaded eastern Tibet and captured Chamdo on 19 October 1950. On November 11, 1950, the Tibetan Government protested to the United Nations against the Chinese aggression. Although El Salvador raised the question, discussions on the issue in the General Assembly was postponed at the instances of Great Britain and India.

On November 17, 1950, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama assumed full Spiritual and Temporal power as the Head of the State although he was barely sixteen years old. On May 23, 1951, a Tibetan delegation, which had gone to Peking to hold talks on the incision, was forced to sign the so-called "17-Point Agreement on Measures for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet". with threat of more military action in Tibet. The Chinese then used this document to carry out their plans to turn Tibet into a colony of China disregarding the strong resistance by the Tibetan people.

On September 9, 1951 thousands of Chinese troops marched into Lhasa. On March 10, 1959, the nation-wide Tibetan resistance culminated in the Tibetan National Uprising against the Chinese, who retaliated with ruthless force. Thousands of men, women and children were massacred in the streets of Lhasa and elsewhere.

On March 17, 1959, the Dalai Lama left Lhasa to seek political asylum in India. He was followed by over 80,000 Tibetan refugees. Never before in their long history has so many Tibetans been forced to leave their homeland under such difficult circumstances. There are now more than 130,000 Tibetan refugees all over the world.
