Tibet: the true homeland of the Dalai Lama, who was banished from there when the Communist Chinese militarily invaded his homeland around 1950! Home of the Tibetan Buddhists in the Himalayas
Officially, an "autonomous region" of the People's Re-public of China, but, in fact, under the control of the Chinese state and the CCP. Tibet has been subject to a certain measure of Chinese authority since the 18th century, but it achieved a good deal of independence from about 1913 until 1950, when it was incorpo-rated into the PRC. An abortive revolt against Chinese domina-tion in 1959 led to a massive invasion and continued military occupation by the PLA. The CCP claims to have liberated Tibet from a cruel feudal system and to have promoted economic development in the area, while Tibetan nationalists accuse China of destroying the indigenous culture and turning Tibet into a dumping ground for its waste products. Sporadic demonstrations for independence have been quashed by the Chinese authorities.
