Um blogger Tibetano deixou o comentário seguinte, num website Tibetano em língua Chinesa, a 25 de Janeiro:
"The 2009 Losar was always going to be unusual because so many people have been killed.
In our family, our father can never come back, our mother has visibly aged, uncles and brothers have been detained - some of whom we still don't know whether they're dead or alive.
Last night, the eldest brother in the neighbour's family was taken away.
There's a guy from a village nearby, who used to roam all over the place doing business, who was locked up for a few months and recently released. But his body is so fragile now that he has to stay in bed with his wife and children looking after him.
When you go out, although the police on the streets aren't as evident as they were a few months ago, there are still a lot. There are armed PAP (People's Armed Police) guys on the roofs "maintaining social stability".
Leaders on television are going round paying their respects and urging people to have a good year... I myself will not be celebrating the new year because those who died were my compatriots, and I knew several of those who died - they were shot dead. I haven't dared call home since March of last year because i don't want to cause them any trouble. And so i don't know how they are. I've had no informatiion on them, and just hope they're okay."
