His Holiness the Dalai Lama said to his Chinese twitter followers, that owing to no solution to Tibet issue through his middle way approach, the voice of Tibetan Independence is growing stronger. The Tibetan spiritual leader has pointed to Tibetan Youth Congress in specific, as a critic of his middle way approach. The Dalai Lama however, assured 99% of Tibetans will not resort to violence in fighting for the cause. This is extremely an important statement by the Dalai Lama, and true to what is happening among the Tibetan intellectuals and activists. Tenzin Sonam's movie "The Sun Behind the Cloud" is a case to point as how Tibetans face an inner struggle between Independence and Middle Way Approach, . Ones I was speaking with JN, and he assured those Tibetans who advocate middle way is not swayed by the feasibility of its goal. He contend that one day when HH gives up middle way approach, then all those demagogues will turn to Independence. It is a mere issue of loyalty. Read HH words and messages between lines, and these subtle warning to the Chinese leadership to the possibility of exile struggle turning to  demanding independence. TYC and those independence activists should be proud of their influence and the significance of the organization's mission in Tibetan's peaceful resistance against the tyranny of communist party.   I believe that Middle Way Approach yeilding no result is in a way good for the Rangzen diehard activists.
