Ich würde Euch ja gerne das Tibetans vs China's Xi Jinping: Gangnam Style-Video von den „Students for a Free Tibet and the International Tibet Network“ zeigen, aber die Copyright-Deppen sind nach wie vor der Meinung, das dürfe man in Deutschland nicht. Braucht ihr nen Proxy oder sowas wie Proxtube für, dann geht das.

On the eve of the CCP's 18th Party Congress, Students for a Free Tibet and the International Tibet Network release a parody video titled "Tibetans challenge Xi Jinping - Gangnam Style." A takeoff of Korean star Psy's uber-popular Gangnam Style, the video features China's heir apparent as a dimwit -- a big-headed oaf whose only response to Tibetans' growing resistance is to arrest, beat and torture protestors.

About the making of this video: Using the power of humor and theater, this video highlights the cruelty and absurdity of the Chinese government's colonial policies in Tibet that have driven 63 Tibetans to set themselves on fire in protest of Chinese rule; 50 this year alone. It also depicts some of the creative protest tactics being used by Tibetans to challenge China's occupation, including a 2011 boycott of Chinese vegetable vendors.

Internet-Meme werden in China oft als Subversion genutzt, neulich erst hatte Ai Weiwei den Gangnam getanzt und die NYTimes hatte letztes Jahr einen spannenden Artikel zu chinesischen Memes als Protestform.
