Reporters Without Borders: Tibet cut off from the rest of the world

Published on Thursday 23 February 2012.

Reporters Without Borders is alarmed at the blackout imposed by Chinese authorities on the provinces of Sichuan and Qinghai, as well as the autonomous region of Tibet, preventing all media coverage of protest movements there.


“Not only are foreign media organizations prevented from covering these events, but the authorities have also organized a veritable disinformation campaign, using pro-government media such as the Global Times, which play down the disturbances and accuse the international community of interfering.

“Few media outlets are able to obtain first-hand information and fewer still manage to travel to the regions concerned.

“Out of sight of the world, a major crisis is unfolding. Even Pyongyang has an international media presence, which is not the case in Lhasa.”

Mr. Obama, say something! You are not going to get any response by simply raising the issue with the PRC in private. Is their temporary loss of face worth the lives of innocents?
