The enemy now is a highly industrialized international trading nation whose import/export numbers can be affected by what 5 billion non-PRC Chinese actually do to assist Tibet regain freedom and sovereignty. Consider this: no "government" is about to get involved, as there is no nation, particularly the USA, strong enough morally, spiritually, militarily, politically or, most critically, economically to resist China.
But we "common" folks do have those powers. There are 5 billion of us (including you) non-Chinese (PRC) on the planet. If each of us spends $10/month less on "Made in China" stuff, the economic impact on China will be tremendous, and sudden. Economic power = military power. Cripple the one, and the other has no punch or staying ability. Don't count on any "government" to do much at all. It's up to each and every one of us, you and me included, to weaken China's stranglehold on Tibet.
