    The Rivers of Tibet

    The Rivers of Tibet

    Tibet’s rivers are beautiful, but they’re also life-sustaining. And not just for people in Tibet, but for nearly 2 billion people across Asia who depend on the rivers’ flow. But China’s large-scale water diversion projects and hydropower development are having a dangerous effect on these rivers, imperiling downstream countries, furthering China’s agenda of regional control and threatening the Tibetan way of life.

Informative, Entertaining and Enlightening

It’s an innovative approach and does achieve its motive of introducing the cause of Tibet, the struggles of the culture and community, the identity under duress and the heroes who have played key roles in the process. At times entertaining, always informative and thoroughly engaging....it does much to broaden the public exposure to a fundamental case of human rights abuse and cultural genocide that is often times overlooked.
