‘Stop U.S. attacks on China’

Published Jul 26, 2008 3:01 PM

The New York branch of the revolutionary youth organization FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together) first held a Marxist discussion on the role of the Dalai Lama and his entanglements with the CIA and then turned the talk into action. On July 17, as the anti-communist religious figure was speaking to a well-heeled crowd at Radio City Music Hall, some of whom paid $1,000 a ticket, FIST was outside protesting his role in fomenting propaganda against the People’s Republic of China. It also demanded U.S. hands off Tibet. Another group—a dissident sect emanating from Tibetan Buddhism—was also there calling the Dalai Lama a “liar” and “dictator” for repressing its believers and expelling its monks.
