Why There is No Free Tibet

Will there ever be a free Tibet? After decades of cultural genocide, religious persecution, murder, and disappearances, tensions between China and Tibetans are boiling. On this episode of China Uncensored, Chris Chappell tells the bloodstained history of modern Tibet, from the invasion by the Chinese Communist Party in 1950, to the exile of the Dalai Lama, the questionable death of the Panchen Lama, riot after riot, protest after protest, a flood of immigration from Han and Hui Chinese ethnicities, even to the Chinese regime's decision to ban reincarnation without government permission. And with over one hundred self-immolation since 2009, what does the future hold for Tibet.
