Free Tibet

Many people think Tibet was a paradise before the Chinese arrived. It wasn't. It was a state run on serfs, where a few rich landowners lived on the back of tithes, slave labour and the penury of the rest.

But that doesn't give a country the right to replace one form of repression with another.

For Tibet, read Burma. For Burma, read Tibet.

The only difference is money.

And that's no difference at all.
