Helping pacify the kiwi for the china


Anger over Dalai Lama film
A Chinese documentary series aimed at promoting China to New Zealanders has been slammed as "irresponsible" and "worthless communist propaganda" by pro-Tibet groups. Weekly hourly slots have been booked on Triangle Television by the New Zealand Pacific Culture and Arts Exchange Centre for the screening of documentaries it says will "help Kiwis understand China better". But after the screening of two China state-produced documentaries last week about the recent Lhasa riots and Tibet's past, the group has incurred the wrath of the Tibetan community and its supporters. Tomorrow night, a 1956 documentary on the Dalai Lama, produced by state-owned China News and Documentary Film Studio, is to be screened. "The documentaries are definitely propaganda that comes from the Chinese Communist Government," said Thuten Kesang, chairman of the Auckland Tibetan Association. "After last week's programme, one of our members got so incensed that he wrote a letter of complaint to Triangle about the screening of such biased shows."

Thousands of Nationalistic Chinese flying communist flags in Aotea Square and chanting aggressively for ‘One China’ (One Party), complaints that the Western Media is lying about what is happening in China (ironically from a country that censors ALL media) and now Party Political Broadcasts for the Chinese Communist Party getting airplay in NZ – the Communist Party is like a horny 16 year old virgin on their first date who won’t take ‘No’ for an answer, we’re not that kinda girl Mr China, we ain’t interested in hearing your excuses, let’s talk the moment you open up genuine dialogue with the Dalai Lama, you stop supporting Mugabe in Zimbabwe, you stop supporting Sudan’s genocide in Darfur and how about you stop supporting Burmas crackdown on Monks as well. Then we can talk ok?

Oh and does anyone know if this below image is true – it is alleged that it shows Chinese soldiers donning monk robes before they start rioting

That photo is apparently from at least 2003. Though no one has actually provided any proof of the claim.

This blog (along with discussing the picture you posted) has 2 further pictures:
1) A "pro-Tibet" protester assaulting a wheelchair-bound torch carrier. (The heartless, terrorist swine!)
2) An earlier picture of that same "pro-Tibet" protester hanging with some friends of his, all of whom are carrying Chinese flags... go figure.

Your link doesn't work patrick, I'd REALLY like to see the other pictures you mentioned as well as the background story on the one Bomber posted.

Props to Bomber for not letting this issue go.

"all of whom are carrying Chinese flags"

Correction: There are at least two others in the second picture carrying (draped in) Tibetan flags.

If it is commie agitprop its pretty incompetent.

When I was in China I saw some tibetans. They are clearly distingishable on racial grounds as they have darker skin. There is no way they could pretend han chinese were tibetans unless they hit the tanning beds are part of their mission.

Good Point but would the average westerner know the difference? I certainly wouldn't.

It may not have been a real free tibet protester attacking that person in a wheelchair but it was a real free tibet protestor who attacked that little girl carrying the torch in London. He was white, so I very much doubt he was working for the chinese.

Yeah but what about post on kiwiblog saying there was a factory in guangdong, china which was found to be manufacturing tibetan flags.

Could cut both ways.
