Update live-remoto sul Summit GVO a Budapest

27Jun08

GVOHo seguito per un po’, più o meno in diretta ma da remoto nella mia postazione del New Mexico, USA, l’evento di Budapest, tra live streaming (Ustream.tv), contatti via Skype-chat, blogs, Twitter e compagnia bella – basta partire dalla pagina apposita. Appena conclusa la prima giornata di lavori, con Ethan Zuckerman che ha ringraziato, tra i dovuti applausi della platea, organizzatori e sponsor dell’evento e chiarito come dopo questa lunga giornata domani le cose dovrebbero essere meno intense, a partire da un divertente video in avvio lavori. Poco prima Rebecca MacKinnon (i due sono cofondatori di Global Voices) aveva chiuso le discussioni con una panoramica su censure e limitazioni della libertà d’espressione online – tema su cui è pressoché ruotata l’intera giornata, tra presentazione di strumenti tecnologici e pratiche sul campo per aggirare i blocchi. Faccende queste che, va sottolineato, pur se ovviamente poco sentite in Occidente rimangono cruciali per gli attivisti del circuito di GVO, e in non pochi casi diventano anzi questione di vita o di morte, dato che parecchi di loro operano in Paesi quali Cina, Thailandia o nelle regioni africane. Last but not least, domani a Budapest, verrà annunciato anche il lancio ufficiale della localizzazione italiana già attiva da un mesetto. A farlo, nell’ultima sessione della seconda giornata dedicata al tema traduzioni e web multilingua, ci penseranno Portnoy (coordinatore del progetto Lingua) e la prode Eleonora Pantò, a Budapest per l’occasione (con rilanci sul suo blog). Utili anziché no i report live di Diego Bianchi (aka Zoro), anche lui parte della squadretta italiana al Summit. E ora Eleonora mi informa di aver raggruppato qui tutti i post italiani sull’evento: ottima idea! Mentre io domani sarò in viaggio verso Bruxelles per la Conferenza Internazionale di COMMUNIA sul pubblico dominio digitale. Su entrambi i fronti, altre news qui appena possibile: stay tuned!

    Radical Tibetan separatists masterminding violent incidents

    The Dalai Lama is now urgently to contact the central government again. However, this urgency doesn’t mean that the Dalai clique wants some “substantial progress” in the relationship, because they know clearly their requirements, such as sending international organizations to Tibet, and taking care of injured Tibetans, are totally excuses and propaganda.

    The central government’s attitude has been consistent: China will not accept the proposal of investigation by foreign agencies, because Tibet issue is China’s internal affair.

    Besides, the fact of the May 14 incident is clear — riot made by desperadoes and violent monks-so there is no need to seek further investigations by international organizations.

    Dalai’s second requirement, treating injured Tibetans, is also ridiculous, as those who got injured were all police officers, soldiers and innocent citizens, who were rushed to hospitals after the riot.

    In contrast, most of the rioters fled the scene when police arrived. Though some of them were caught or surrendered, none of them were physically hurt.

    Even the Dalai clique could not give specific names of the so-called injured rioters. The Dalai clique, positioned on the side of rioters, is not even qualified to talk about treating the wounded because it’s them who caused death and injuries.

    What kind of “substantial progress” they are demanding? Is it “protection of Tibetan culture” or “protection of Tibetan religion”? Actually their claim is ridiculous.

    Tibet has been part of China since the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century. So it is beyond all doubt that Tibetan culture is weaved in the texture of Chinese culture. It is Chinese government’s duty to protect Tibetan culture, which can be testified by the money and gold that the central government have substantially invested on maintenance of Tibetan temples.

    “Tibet Independence” is the premise of Dalai Lama’s alleged “sabotage of Tibetan culture.” As for “sabotage of Tibetan religion,” it is equally absurd. Chinese government will not intervene in religious issues if monks hadn’t taken part in riots. It is Chinese government’s duty to put down commotion if riots take to street.

    “Dalai Lama’s return” constitutes in the alleged “substantial progress”. But if Dalai Lama clique insists on separation, Chinese people will not allow the separatists to come back to Chinese soil.

    Dalai Lama clique actually knows clearly about the situation. They want to make noises in the international communities. They also rely on “Tibetan Youth Congress” to make body bombings.

    There are no difference between Dalai Lama clique and Tibetan Youth Congress(TYC) since Dalai Lama and the TYC leader Samdhong belong to the same group.

    We believe that Dalai Lama clique are masterminding another violent riots.
