Chinese Troops Suffering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder In Tibet??

Yeah, what about the Tibetan people then??

Found an article from Telegraph that starts with: 

The battle to keep Tibetans under control is inflicting severe psychological damage on Chinese armed police, an internal training document has revealed.

  • The leaked 25-page training manual was given to members of the People’s Armed Police charged with keeping order in Tibetan areas.
  • Among the advice it offers are ways of combating depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for paramilitary troops involved in recent atrocities.
  • One section is titled: “How should you deal with flashbacks of brutal episodes?
  • Refers to an incident in Aba county on March 16, 2011 when a Tibetan monk named Phuntsok self-immolated in a market and to a protest on March 18, 2009 in Seda and Ganzi counties where Chinese armed police, confronted by protesting Tibetans, fired into the crowd.

As China battles to contain the problems in Tibet, the authorities have introduced a new, microscopic surveillance system to keep watch on the population and reduce the risk of troops being exposed to traumatic incidents.

Outlined in an annual report in February, the “grid” management divides Tibet into units of as few as five or ten households, each of which is watched over by at least five administrative and security staff, according to Human Rights Watch.

The staffs are also charged with collecting information about their grids in order to nip any problems in the bud.

So in conclusion it is the Chinese police that suffers? And by putting more pressures on them to keep even more control over the Tibetans it will be better? The Chinese government needs to pull out every single Chinese out of Tibet now for both their sakes! 

Amnesty, UN, governments must ACT for Tibet now, not just produce reports of what we already know. That what China does in Tibet is nothing less than genocide. That people, animals and nature suffers atrocious wounds that will never be healed.

But what we can do is to STOP them right now to give them a chance to heal in freedom…
