Its a gr8 concern that the chinese officials are mixing politics with environment. The latest edition of the RFA says that
But a local Han Chinese source familiar with the situation said the move was an obvious counter-blow against the Dalai Lama.
“With regard to the current popular movement initiated by the people themselves for the protection of wildlife, the Chinese have come to recognize and understand that it is principally inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who asked for the support of the Tibetan people for the protection of wildlife and the natural environment of Tibet during the Kalachakra teachings at Amaravati in South India,” the man said.
“Although the Dalai Lama specifically mentioned “endangered species” of fur-bearing animals, with no mention of farmed fur animals, we are still very happy with his pronouncement,” Close said in a statement e-mailed to RFA’s Tibetan service
So wheres the Tibetans leading the fight infact forced to lead it there.
