“Spring Action”

Radio Lhasa and the Tibet Daily recently reported that Lhasa Public Security Bureau launched a “Spring Action” campaign on 10 April 1997. The campaign aims ostensibly to strike down on crime and corruption in and around Lhasa and to “uphold the social standard and morale”.

The campaign is a follow-on from “Strike Hard” launched in April 1996 which has been utilised to imprison Tibetan political dissidents and severely suppress religious freedom in Tibetan monasteries.
