This is a link....http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5iltkJ33mPgcn8VEfzLDgOcPjM60w?docId=8b5b8c91d99a42288a7bb4095cb5f55b referencing issues in China today. In this particular the indigenous population has been displaced by han chinese leaving 20% of its original inhabitants.

Articles in US/british media typically present issues such as these in simplistic terms such as ....evil communists good buddhists, things of that sort .
Those articles can ususally be identified within a minutes reading to be what they are...propogandistic, filled with not clear agenda.

I'm presenting this article surpriseingly written by google which addresses some of the real issues in the areas of china similiar to this.
A small article but despite that it displays correctly the opposeing forces and complication to this issue.

This is not to infer any other things such as china is not engageing in human rights violations killing and torturing innocents, which they certainly are, as american is presently in other areas...but to show a example of a complexity to things in China, and how media may occasionally correctly hint at such complexity, as opposed to offering simplistic things that are summarily discounted.

Something we can learn from as opposed to be incited from.
For your consideration on the issue of propoganda.

"This order considers that progress can be achieved more rapidly during a single month of self-transformation through terrifying conditions in rough terrain and in "the abode of harmful forces" than through meditating for a period of three years in towns and monasteries"....Takpo Tashi Namgyal.
