China Launches Education Drive In Lhasa, Warns Citizens

pro-china.jpgA re-education drive promised in the wake of Tibetan protests is now underway, according to a state-run paper in Tibet. From Reuters, via the Guardian:

The campaign to “fight separatism, protect stability and promote development” would focus on “unifying the thinking and cohesive strength of officials and the masses, deepening the struggle against separatism and counter-attacking the separatist plots of the Dalai clique”, said the paper.

Party members and officials would be assessed on their “performance” in the two-month drive, which will include television programmes and organised denunciation sessions.

The Dalai Lama has denounced violence and said he supports Beijing holding the Games in August, but also accused Beijing of perpetrating possible “cultural genocide” in Tibet.
