Have you come across the terms “common prosperity,” “ecological civilization” or “picking quarrels and stirring up trouble?” Tibetans in Tibet have been bombarded with such slogans every day of their lives over more than 60 years of Beijing’s rule in Tibet. However, China’s slogans are new to the global community. Many find them intriguing; some dismiss them as mere propaganda. We think it’s time to audit the slogans.
In this Tibet Talk, we invite Australia-based veteran Tibet observer Gabriel Lafitte and researcher and translator Tsering Dorje to discuss the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy’s latest publication, “Decoding CCP,” a glossary and analysis of slogans from the Communist Party of China. In this conversation, Gabriel and Tsering provide an overview of sloganeering in China and its effects on Tibetans and the global community at large. This discussion is cohosted by the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy.
