Han Student Describes Violence Against Tibetans

December 21, 2011

The following account describing a December 14 Han Chinese student uprising against their Tibetan peers at ’s Railroad Engineering school was viewed on the original Qzone blog over 10,000 times. The blog has since been made private. The original text and photos since deleted from Weibo are available at Woeser’s blog, Invisible Tibet.

On the evening of December 14, yesterday, the Han  showed how awesome they are. 3,000 guys from male dormitories 1, 2, and 3, all wearing their school uniforms, surrounded the Tibetan ’ dormitory and attacked. In fighting that lasted all night, the Tibetan dormitory was destroyed, the doors and windows completely smashed. The Tibetan classrooms were also ruined. A bunch of Tibetan  were beaten badly enough to be sent to the hospital. The police came but couldn’t control the situation, so over 1,000 riot police were sent in. They dispersed the  with tear gas. The Han  didn’t hesitate to smash the police and teachers’ cars. The principal got on the loud speaker to beg the to calm down and leave the scene, but no one gave a damn. The Han and Tibetan  at the Railroad Engineering School really hate each other. Those several hundred Tibetan  are so full of themselves. Last night was an important victory for the Han , because the school picked up all of the Tibetan , and of course there were a bunch of Tibetan who got seriously beaten up. Our slogan last night was loud and clear: beat the Tibetans, get extra credit.

The outcome of last night’s battle was the destruction of the Tibetan students’ dormitory and classrooms, plus a lot of police vehicles and teachers’ cars. The school is under martial law now. You can get in but you can’t get out. Last night’s battle was seriously bloody.

Today at noon after the Han students ate lunch the Tibetan students came for their lunch. All of the sudden, someone yelled that there were Tibetans in the cafeteria. We fought again, trapping the Tibetans in the cafeteria. I predict that tonight will be another sleepless night of battle. The Han students are formidable!!! Beat the Tibetans, wear your school uniform, and get extra credit.
