China: Tibet Railroad

China inaugurated the Tibet railroad on July 1. Mainland blogger like Bingfengteahouse believes that it is a truely blessing for Tibetian. However, The China Confidential comments that “Tibetans are rapidly becoming an underclass in their own country as a result of the government-sponsored Chinese influx and persecution of Tibetans“. A writer from InMediaHK criticizes that China and Hong Kong media are overwhelmingly positive about the railroad without questioning the power relation between the Chinese and Tibetian (Zh). ESWN translates a Chinese reporter Fu Jianfeng's notes on his personal experience at the Tibet railroad inauguration trip. Sun Bin has a collection of videos.
