It was nearly a year ago when all of those Protests against Chinese rule and the so-called Autonomy of the Tibetan state began and were making international headlines.

I remember how upset people were getting and how many people began to think that the Beijing Olympics should have been boycotted over Human Rights issues.

Here is an article on the current situation in Tibet

and here is what Wikipedia has to say on the subject

I know that we have some Chinese users here at UG and I was wondering what your views on the situation in Tibet are.

Also, what does everyone think on the subject? Should the Chinese grant Tibet actual autonomy vs. supposed autonomy? If so, what position do you think the Dalai Lama should hold? Should China grant Tibet independance?

Other thoughts, comments and opinions are welcome.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

Why discuss should and would when we all know it won't happen?
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

In the hopes of creating debate and intelligent dialogue?

Am I being too hopeful?

When it's China we are talking about, sadly yes.
