A local university leftie with the safety net of up to three inheritances and the elite privilege of not being profiled by police when smoking marijuana in public, has today announced that she will not rest until China recognises Tibet.
Alison Anguston-Smythley (20) says it sickens her that so few people understand how important it is that the various territories within the People’s Republic of China (PRC) that are claimed as political Tibet should separate and become a new sovereign state.
While subconsciously leaving the imminent threat of climate change to the half-hearted protestors, and leaving the issue of Aboriginal deaths in custody to those who seemed to be affected by it – Alison is doing what no one else has the balls to do – or time, money and privilege to do:
That is, questioning whether Tibet was independent or subordinate to China in certain parts of its recent history.
“I know there’s a lot to be angry about” says Alison, who has only ever hit the streets to protest lock-out laws on nightclubs.
“But it makes me sick that most Australians don’t give a fuck that China and Tibet were independent prior to the Yuan dynasty between 1271 and 1368”
At time of press, Alison was overheard defending Lena Dunham.
