Kailash ranges stretch from holy Mount Kailash in Tibet till south of Pangong Tso lake including Rechin La, Mukhpari, Gurung Hills & Magar hills about 450 kms

Uma forma inteligente de mentir é desviar o foco. E aí não me refiro à BBC News Brasil, mas à conversa que ela própria veicula, que parece ser uma construção de "mundo livre vs. comunismo". Vamos lá...

O verdadeiro "#pontodetensão" entre o "#Ocidente" e a #China é pelo controle e desenvolvimento da tecnologia 5G e aí, a oposição à #Huawei. Outros pontos destacados na matéria, como Hong Kong, já vinham ocorrendo a tempos e recebendo manifestações pífias e inócuas de +
outros centros de poder mundial, #Washington aí incluso. A questão dos #uigures, no #Sinkiang, já tem décadas, assim como a #MongóliaInterior, com a etnia #mongol e o próprio #Tibet, já calejado de receber homenagens na telona com atores consagrados como Pitt ("7 Anos no Tibet")+

People keep on asking me why I care about what's happening in #HongKong, and why at @NOW4humanity we are organizing #FridaysForFreedom across the world: "it's sad but inevitable and 'only' concerns a couple million people".

Here are some quick thoughts:

1. Nothing is inevitable. Hong Kong vs #China might be the combat of David vs Goliath, but the world can come to David's rescue

2. Injustice anywhere is a treat to justice everywhere. I would argue that a couple million people is an enormous amount of injustice!

3. What's happening in #HK is part of a wider pattern of a systematic crackdown on any form of dissent by #China. It has happened in #Tibet. It's happening with the #Uighurs. Now it's #HongKong's turn, but who's next? #Taiwan? Other countries?

🎥 Hier soir, la télévision d'État chinoise (CCTV) a stoppé la diffusion des matchs de Premier League.

Une décision qui est intervenu dans un contexte de tensions diplomatiques entre la Chine et le Royaume-Uni.

Explications en THREAD ⤵
D’après Bloomberg, la télévision d'État chinoise CCTV semble avoir rétrogradé les diffusions des matchs de Premier League vers des chaînes moins regardées.

Cela aurait le cas notamment hier avec le match Liverpool-Chelsea qui a été diffusé sur CCTV 5.…
Toutefois, interrogé sur ces informations cet après-midi par la BBC, le ministère chinois des Affaires étrangères a refusé de confirmer ou de nier la véracité de cette information.…

1. THREAD: Amid a series of strong UK responses — the Huawei ban and the suspension of its extradition treaty
with #HongKong among them — to growing signs of Chinese imperialism, @SecPompeo paid an important visit to London, where he and I had a great conversation yesterday.
2. Unlike previous meetings with top American government representatives, I enjoyed the opportunity to sit down and chat personally with Pompeo for over 20 minutes. We touched first and foremost on the latest threats of the new, Beijing-imposed National Security Law.
3. We also discussed #China's broader strategy to tighten the grip on Hong Kong and its future challenges in the global arena. I specifically highlighted the opposition camp's successful primaries held earlier this month, in which more than 600,000 people cast their votes.

THREAD: I want to say some things about China, Chinese people, the brutal, mendacious Chinese Communist Party regime, & what we should do about it all.

I am conscious that I tweet a lot. But bear with me and follow this thread if you have time.

First: I love China & its people
Second, I first went to China aged 18

I began my exploration of the world by teaching English in Qingdao

I studied a Masters in China Studies at @SOAS

I lived in #HongKong for the first 5 years after the handover

I began my adult life in China…
Third, for the first 3 decades of my adult life, I went in & out of China regularly - I have lost count, but I have probably visited China more than 50 times

Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Kunming, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Qingdao, Dali, Guilin, Yangshuo are places I love :)

Cong-China Bonhomie in nutshell (1/c)
Cong Govt deliberately ruined the strategic trade with the other nations and Shockingly diverted most of its imports channel to china. Most suspicious part of trade deal is "Nuclear reactor, broilers & Machinery"

Not many knw #Tibet ws in close contact with India, since atleast last 3000yrs.
I came across a 300 yr old skull/Kapala, with HINDU symbols engraved on it, that provides more proof.
This one is abt
~Eternal love/soulmates
Surprisingly, each symbol on this special KAPALA has both spiritual and scientific meaning hidden behind it.
For example--the crossed VAJRA marked in the pic 1 corresponds to fontanelle.
Hindus associate it with
~seat of 7th chakra
~Exit of last breath
~Good health
Hinduism hs never been reticent to discuss subjects considered taboo by westerners.
From KAALI to KAL Bhairava, and a couple which was beheaded during meditation-- this KAPALA is abt eternal love too.
May this man be reborn as a good soul.

#Manasarovar As you enter Manasarovar, one of the first thing that hits you day and night. It follows China Time zone. Manasarovar that is to the west of Kolkatta and bangla desh. The circadian rhythm of Tibetan people is the price.
Now time in Manasarovar is about 11 AM. Same as Beijing. Psychologically Tibetan is told, you are nothing, by the Chinese communist party diktat.
This hits you? Why does the chinese immigration official leave for dinner when the sky is so bright?
#Tibet Is in the iron grip of Chinese Communist party. Everyone's mobile is checked for Dalai Lama's picture. If your mobile has one, the entire lot is punished by denial of entry.
You are warned not to take the name of Dalai Lama. There are Tibetan 'guide' who travels along

1. #China’s recent aggression at the border with India at key strategic locations in Union Territory of #Ladakh is nothing new nor is its betrayal of historic treaties with (former) J&K, #Tibet & HK. However, the dragon now faces a new India that attempts to tame it. A thread:
2. #China already occupies about 1/5th of original state of Jammu & Kashmir incl. Aksai Chin and Sakshgam valley “gifted” by #Pakistan. However, historically, these parts have been a part of formerly princely state of J&K that officially & legally became a part of #India in 1947.
3. Not just J&K but significant parts of #Tibet were also controlled by J&K rulers. Here’s the chronology of how #China illegally occupied these territories and clearly flouted the treaties signed during these times.

The #IndiaChina border is 3488 km long, not the LAC. The India-China border as India defines it extends eastward from the India-Afghanistan-China trijunction far west of the Karakoram pass to the India-Myanmar-China trijunction in the Eastern Sector.1/n
Which is why the border from that western trijunction to the India-Myanmar-China trijunction in the Eastern Sector is 3488 km long. Chinese refuse to discuss stretch west of #KarakoramPass which
largely covers so-called border between #PakOccupiedKashmir &Chinese #Xinjiang. 2/n
In the Chinese definition, the India-China border (their calculation of the length is obviously east of the Karakoram Pass but it has never been properly explained) is around 2000 km long. 3/n

Bill introduced in #US Congress ( Lok Sabha) to declare the #USA will consider #Tibet as a free independent nation separate from #China . Interesting to note the proposal has come from a Republican Congressman @RepScottPerry who is a former @USArmy Brigadier General.
If & when this passes will open up assistance funding & support for the #Tibetans in exile in #India & elsewhere.
Will also open up routes for the #USA to sanction #China & any other nation ( #Pakistan ) that uses an illegal #CPEC /route passing through occupied #Tibet.
As I've said on a different fora earlier #India is key to helping rebuild #Tibet as a free nation for #Tibetans . I believe the @PMOIndia would've already started working on modalities with HH the @DalaiLama & the Govt of #Tibet in exile at Dharamshala & Bylakuppe.

Why has the situation in some areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC)between #IndiaChina become so ‘hot’ in recent days? The two sides exchanged fisticuffs and belligerent noises have been made. It is true that transgressions along the line are not new occurrences. But..1/8
#Boundary India and have established a number of protocols since 1993 to maintain peace and tranquillity and promote CBMs in the border areas along the LAC. These arrangements have worked pretty satisfactorily for many years now. But suddenly they appear to be fraying.2/8
#1962Conflct between IndiaChina was preceded by a few years of jockeying and jousting for positions in both the Eastern but mainly in the Western Sector (Aksai Chin/Ladakh).India felt the Chinese were advancing their reach to gain more territory in Ladakh.3/8

When I joined Twitter this March, I read lots tweets about China from western medias or personal person.
I am shocked.😮
It’s 2020, but lots people know nothing about China, even China had become the second largest economic entity in the world.
So I want to show a real China. Image
My Aussie friends always ask me, what’s the weather like in China.
Well, it depends.
The edge of south area is warm while edge of north area freezing.
And we have 56 nationals with different culture but inner combined.
I will update a long tweets to show each 34 areas of China. Image
This is #Harbin HeiLongJiang province capital city, #China
It is located in north east, which is very cold and freezing.
But you will have fun with snow and ice.
Enjoy the ice world in lightning show, and lost in a fairytale castle.
This city combines modern and ice fun.

#China's total exports in 2018 were $2.65 trillion, of which approximately $477 billion went to the #USA, $441 billion went to the #EU, and $157 billion to #Japan. Add #SouthKorea and #India, and that is over 50% of Chinese exports.
China's strong economy depends on the good will of a handful of governments. Gradually increasing tariffs (or economic sanctions) on Chinese imports in these and other like-minded countries and the EU, if linked to demands for: 1) human rights improvements in #HongKong, ...

Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.
Free #IlhamTohti , Free All Political Prisoners at #HK rally for #Uighurs . Ilham just received EU parliament’s #SakharovPrize this week. He’s serving life in prison in China on the entirely false charge of ‘separatism’. His daughter @JewherIlham accepted the award on his behalf.

[Thread] A Chinese student group, likely CSSA, threatened Columbia University to cancel a panel discussion on #humanrights in #hongkong #tibet #EastTurkestan #Uyghurs and #China. And they successfully blocked the discussion. An extreme insult to free speech in this country.
[Cont.] A statement co-authored by all panelists and the moderator will be out soon. Even in recent months, many similar things happened in US, Australia, Canada and other countries. #CSSA is definitely a weapon of Chinese government.
Here are two flyers we posted on Eventbrite:
The cancellation explains the importance of this panel discussion. Chinese government successfully prevented this discussion, as it did numerous times in the world. [cont.]
