A Boiling Pot: The CCP’s Increasingly Intrusive Surveillance in Tibet

September 22, 2018 By Tenzin Tsultrim, THE DIPLOMAT

For the past few years, the intensity and the diversity of China’s surveillance systems in Tibet have been growing to an unprecedented scale. Findings from numerous rights groups and institutes from across the world confirm the deteriorating human rights situation in Tibet (for a few recent examples, see Freedom House’s report from 2018; Human Rights Watch’s report from 2018; the Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy’s 2017 report; Amnesty International’s 2017-2018 report; and the U.S. Congressional Executive Commission on China’s report from  2017).

In 2014, the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) translated numerous comments posted on Weibo (China’s equivalent to Twitter) by Chinese tourists who had visited Tibet, particularly Lhasa. Most of the microbloggers shared their complete astonishment in their comments on Weibo.[Source]
