"Many basic questions remain unanswered since the largest and most sustained protests in decades swept across the Tibetan plateau in early March 2008. This report is the first to document, solely through eyewitness testimonies, how the crackdown unfolded, and the scale of abuses that Chinese security forces committed. Between March 2008 and April 2010, Human Rights Watch interviewed over 200 Tibetans immediately after they had left or sought refuge in neighboring countries. Their stories reveal a far greater degree of abuse and brutality by Chinese security forces than previously reported, including use of disproportionate force to suppress protesters; deliberate ill-treatment by police; and politically determined judicial proceedings. The report urges the Chinese government to open the region to outside human rights monitors, and to encourage independent investigations of the protests and their aftermath."--P.  of cover.
