Once the PLA gained control over Tibet, they began to remove rights from citizens. The Chinese began their acts of terror by threatening the Dalai Lama, causing action to be taken by the extremely religious Tibetans and for the Dalai Lama to leave his country and flee to safety in India. This entire plan made Tibet vulnerable to attacks from China. China began to rid Tibet of all freedoms, and is even said in the “Massacres in Tibet” article, it states that “In Tibet today, there is no freedom of speech, religion, or press and arbitrary detainments continue” (Choesang). Ever since the beginning of the genocide and even in modern times, “Forced abortion, sterilization of Tibetan women and the transfer of low income Chinese citizens threaten the survival of Tibet 's unique culture” (Choesang).The strongest dehumanization however was the multiple attacks in Tibetan Buddhism and cultural standings of the people of Tibet.

Because the Chinese still follow the Seventeen Point Agreement, which states China 's rule over Tibet, they believe they have the authority to change Tibet 's culture to what they seem fit. On the other hand, Tibet declined that agreement and honors their culture as their own.
