Democratic Reform in Xizang -- Light in the Abolition Movement around the World

One or two hundred years ago, European and American countries initiated intense and difficult movements to abolish the slavery system and fight for equal rights of human beings. These movements have significance in world history, marking the awakening of the ideological trend of humanitarianism and morality and justice. The Abolition Movement changed the old thinking and values of humans. After the slavery system was abolished, the awareness of human rights was gradually enhanced, opening a new chapter in the history of human civilization.

In 1794, it was declared that the slavery system was abolished after the French Revolution.

In 1807 and 1833, the Slave Trade Abolition Act and the Slavery Abolition Act were passed one after another in Britain.

In 1861, the serf system was abolished through the top-down reform in Russia.

In 1865, relying on its victory in the Civil War, the United States Federal Government abolished the slavery system and involuntary servitude in the form of amendments to the Constitution.

On March 28, 1959, the magnificent democratic reform was launched in Xizang, China, ending the history of the last region without human rights and incompatible with civilizations of the world in human society.

The democratic reform in Xizang is the greatest chapter in the development history of the cause of human rights in the 20th century and the abolition history of all human beings. Like the Abolition Movement around the world, this is progress towards justice and an important milestone in the progress of human rights in the world. The abolition was more thorough than that in other countries.

Compared with the Abolition Movement in Europe and America, only Xizang of China took the path of democratic reform in a peaceful way.
