Tibet's Drapchi Prison = Auschwitz 1944;Tillerson Responds Well Despite China's Belligerent Bloviating Bluster on Tibet

Drapchi prison in Lhasa is the Auschwitz of China's occupation of Tibet, this abused abandoned-by-the-rest of the world nation. Like Germany in the 1940's, China has many more prisons and concentration camps:

Here is a list of some of them, and they all hold political prisoners.

Powo Tramo, Chushur Prison, Delapuxie Prison,Lhasa Juvenile Offender Detachment, Xizang Autonomous Region Prison, Karze Prison, and Trisam Prison

I strongly encourage Secretary Tillerson in this article to press the Chinese on these prisons/concentration camps, and to ask for International monitoring. Maybe it is too much to ask and too soon, but what a message it would send if he were to visit Drapchi Prison in Lhasa Tibet, in addition to those stuffy formal boring state dinners in Beijing with all sort of bloviating speeches of course intent on covering up the genocide of Tibetans that has killed 20% of their population since 1959, and to keep up the tenor of responses, and not let our foreign policies re: Tibet and China devolve into mere corporate subservience.

For Tibetans, this situation is awful, but will get worse and worse. The US doesn't use the Dalai Lama to "stir up trouble"; but only those few American with international knowledge combined with a sense of Justice and Compassion, have been outspoken about China's abuse of Tibetans, the genocidal tragedy that goes on an on, like a broken record with only noisy oblivious hostility from Beijing.

I directly helped 6 to 8 Tibetan political prisoners get released from Chinese prisons, which are all over Tibet (like the concentration camps were all over Germany), so indeed I know of what I speak.

The strategy involved extensive correspondence in Mandarin pressuring the Chinese government through its Ambassadors in every nation in the world, to not continue its stupid and obvious genocide of Tibetans, that they weren't foooling anyone, despite having learned from the Germans' genocide to do it much more slowly, hide it much more secretively, and to label it as "re-education," concentrating on other methods like intentionally spreading AIDS and punishing any demonstration whatsoever of loyalty to the Dalai Lama.

Maybe some in other nations will listen. The only one I distinctly remember as understanding these "non-professional" strategies of mine was Erkki Tuomioja when he was Foreign Minister. from 2000 to 2007 and 2011 to 2015. He is now a member of Finnish Parliament, and could far better and more effective advice to Secretary of State Tillerson than let's say the more likely prospects of listening to the CEO's of Walmart and other nations who do billions of dollars of business with China on a daily basis.

I am truly gratified, surprised, and encouraged by Secretary of State Tillerson's response to written questions posed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, but thus far, I feel uncertain that Trump will do nothing specific to help Tibetans in any way. By doing nothing in the White House, the Chinese will feel emboldened to step up their psychotic pathological lying genocidal oppression of Tibetans, unabated.

For more information, please read what the International Campaign for Tibet has to say, especially in the realm of writing about political prisoners. See also more videos at the Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy:
