‘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.
