Photo Essay: Chinese Regime Suppresses Tibet Protests

Photographs taken by Tibetans show the recent demonstrations and their repression by the Chinese regime.

The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy has posted one page of photos of individuals killed by Chinese forces in Ngaba County, Sichuan Province on March 16. Warning: these are very graphic photos. You can see these photos here.

The demonstrations, which began on the anniversary of China's invasion of Tibet in 1959, have drawn increasingly violent responses from the Chinese military, and have engendered sympathetic protests around the world.

Government officials from many Western nations, including the United States, Germany, the UK, New Zealand, and Canada, as well as the Interim Chinese government have called upon the communist Chinese regime to use moderation in dealing with the demonstrations, many of which have been led by Buddhist monks.

Tibetans inside China have also began demonstrating for an end to the violence aimed at the demonstrators in Tibet.
