(TibetanReview.net, Oct23, 2017) – China said Oct 22 that its paramilitary People’s Armed Police Force, which is notorious for having massacred Tibetans during successive peaceful mass protests, including in 2008, had been promoting the policies and ideas of the ongoing 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) among their brigades as well as to the public across the Tibet Autonomous Region.

In Xigaze (Tibetan: Shigtse), armed police border guards produced promotional materials to be handed out to workers at road construction sites near the Zhangmu (Dram) border near Nepal, reported globaltimes.cn, run by China’s Party mouthpiece People’s Daily, Oct 22. With the materials, printed on red paper, the border guards were able to inform workers about the ideas that are high on the Party and State agenda, it said.

It also said that in Tibet’s capital Lhasa, soldiers visited veteran Tibetan Party members with promotional materials and held discussions on how to contribute to the region’s security and social development.

The report also cited the local Tibetan language media as reporting that all the Party committees and organs held seminars for the 3 million Party members in the region to learn about Xi’s 3.5-hour speech on Oct 18, the congress’s opening day.

The report said that thanks to the construction of telecom infrastructure, messages delivered during the Party congress were able to reach the most remote areas of the country.
