Tibet is harder to visit than North Korea. But I got in and streamed live on Facebook.

I visited Tibet a decade ago and we travelled completely unhindered as far as we could tell. Conversations with locals told of the awful truth - Tibet had been subjected to a cultural purge focused in and around their religion. All the monesteries were gutted (the true administrative power in the region) and all dissenters cracked down upon. A truly awful chapter of recent history and one that will be looked back upon in shame, if indeed it gets a mention. The truth of the Chinese land grab is known by so few in the West. Blood awful, all of it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
