Should’ve linked to this earlier but Konchog at Dreaming of Danzan Ravjaa has a great post on feeling sympathy for the young Chinese people who are vigorously defending their country from what they see as unfair attacks from abroad. Some good mythbusting info on the office of the Dalai Lama among other things in there too.
And Danny Fisher linked to a Washington Post article on the Tibetan writer Woeser, who was profiled in the New York Review of Books and elsewhere some months ago. She bravely lives and writes in Beijing, along with her husband, the activist Wang Lixiong.
