Far less visible than their counterparts in Tibet and Xinjiang, the remaining ethnic Mongolians in the Chinese-administered province of Inner Mongolia have had an equally painful relationship with Beijing. At ChinaGeeks, the highly-talented C.Custer rounds up and translates news related to some protests there:
“Today on Twitter I saw several interesting messages from @siweiluozi about an incident in Inner Mongolia that apparently led to rather large scale protests the past few days, with the largest being early this morning Beijing time.
What exactly were they protesting, though? I decided to dig more into it. The following is culled together from a variety of sources, and parts of all of it may not be accurate.”
A very interesting story- we’ll see what comes of it.
