Security crackdown in TAR

July 28, 2017
The official Tibet Daily reported on July 28, 2017, that a new crackdown on “illegal activity” has been launched in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) to “safeguard national unity and social stability” and ensure compliance to the Party prior to the 19th Party Congress. It says further actions will be taken to “prevent […] problematic information distributed by Dalai Clique and other Western hostile forces and track down on-line circulation of negative information, hyper-speculation and rumors.” TAR Party Secretary Wu Yingjie was cited in the article as saying that he and the other delegates will undertake the “glorious mission” of representing the regional Party authorities to address the “political priority” of “stability maintenance”. Speaking to the TAR’s delegates separately, Wu Yingjie spoke about the importance of the “management of religious affairs.”[Source]
