Ottawa, Canada: Garnett Genuis, MP for Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan in Alberta in the House of Commons of Canada, spoke on the occasion of the Tibetan Uprising Day. “Mr Speaker, today marks the 61st anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising Day. We mark 61 years of resistance to the Communist occupation of Tibet, the “land of snows”. Tibetan resistance has a unique character, Tibetans do not desire recrimination or division and they do not respond to their oppression with violence. They desire reconciliation, a middle way that allows genuine autonomy within the framework of the Chinese constitution. They build, they love and they will outlast. In their resistance, Tibetans model the immortal words of Martin Luther King Jr. who said, “We shall match your capacity to inflict suffering with our capacity to endure suffering, we shall meet your physical force with soul force. The deep spirituality and endurance of the Tibetan soul force will overcome the mere physical force of aimless dialectical materialism.” This year, the Communist Party introduced a new draconian “ethic unity law” to eradicate virtually all of the distinctive elements of Tibetan identity. But we celebrate today, that even under the growing oppression that the “land of the snows” endures, the Tibetan spirit is strong as ever inside Tibet, in Dharamsala, here in Canada and around the world. Bod Gyalo!”
