    It's part of china, hence the 'free tibet' movement.

    Thanks Cyrus.
    That's what my movie says. I'm watching "Tibet, Cry of the snow lion"
    I'm not sure how old it is, so it could be that Tibet has gotten its independence ever since.
    Has Anyone watched it? Good documentary movie. 'd like to watch?

    Kundun was also an interesting movie about Tibet. Since the Dalai Lama has not yet returned to Tibet, I gather it is still under control of mainland China.

    Tibet is not independent. It is administrated by China, but Tibetans like to say they are independent.
