Don't want to get lost in politics, but this was build to celebrate the liberation of Tibet...... It's an eye soar in front of Potala Palace and is simply used to remind everyone who is in charge.

You see this monument of imperialism passing by but the real picture you get from the Potala palace. It tells what it is all about today.

China built this Square right in front of the Potala Palace. Was this intended to make the Tibetan people succumb.It is large and imposing. A throw back to the Cultural Revolution.
