Revolução açafrão

Tibetanos furiosos? Parece um contrasenso. Mas 49 anos de repressão... deram nisto. Não há monge que aguente, essa é que é essa.

«Violence erupted Friday morning in a busy market area of the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, as Buddhist monks and other ethnic Tibetans clashed with Chinese security forces. Witnesses say angry Tibetan crowds burned shops, cars, military vehicles and at least one tourist bus. The chaotic scene was the latest and most violent confrontation in a series of protests that began on Monday and now represent a major challenge to the ruling Communist Party as it prepares to host the Olympic Games in August.»
