China wants Tibetan broadcasters to wear fur

01
May '06
Chinese authorities have asked Tibetan broadcasters in Amdo Tibetan region of northwest China, to add fur lining to 'chupas', their traditional clothing.

Head of Qinghai provincial Propaganda Department, Che Xizhen and head of provincial Communist Party's ideology-focused United Front Work Department, Rancher Gyal visited Qinghai television station recently.

They announced Tibetan-language broadcasters to wear fur-lined traditional Tibetan clothing, a source close to the station said.

To provide broadcasters with monetary assistance to buy this clothing, officials will be allocating a budget of yuan 10,000 (US $1,250) for furs.

Staff wore dresses which were old and not colorful. To improve Government television station's image, assistance was offered to buy fur-lined clothing, said Bai Jubi, Chief, Qinghai television station.

Instruction given to broadcasters was meant to arouse an anti-fur movement inspired by Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, Dalai Lama.

Anti-fur campaign is thought to have begun in Rebkong county, Malho prefecture, in remote northwestern province of Qinghai.

Dalai Lama's call to Tibetans to protect endangered species in January, made people burn tiger, leopard, and sea otter skins publicly against Chinese authorities wish in early February.

Animal rights groups in other countries objected to China's expanding fur trade, which includes use of domestic cat fur in accessories and ornaments.

The US-based People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), could be given unwanted furs, which it would donate to freezing and homeless, or for educational purposes, said Roben Euler, member, International Anti-Fur Coalition, Baltimore.
