Imperialism with a new face is still imperialism

Hao Peng, the new vice-chairman of the regional government in Tibet, offers a novel interpretation of those living under colonialism:

No sovereign country in the world would allow the hanging of a portrait of a person like that… the Dalai Lama colluded with anti-China forces abroad to make trouble in Tibet. What you see in the streets, including the police and other legal forces, are necessary measures to maintain stability… the local, ordinary people love the country, they love the Communist Party of China.
