Ask UK politician to answer Tibet critics

In August, British politician Lord Neil Davidson spoke at a conference in Tibet as a guest of the Chinese government. While there, he was reported to have backed a public statement claiming that Tibetans are “happy” and praising China’s work in Tibet.   Other Western politicians attending the event have refused to be associated with the statement.

During Lord Davidson’s visit, Chinese forces fired on peaceful protesters in Kardze, eastern Tibet killing four. Lord Davidson has not condemned the shootings or China’s human rights record in Tibet. He has ignored repeated requests from the media and Free Tibet to explain his position.

Lord Davidson is a spokesperson for the UK’s Labour Party and receives thousands of pounds per year in expenses from the British taxpayer.

Send him a message. Ask Lord Davidson to break his silence

Last chance to support Tibet in the EU

Thanks for your fantastic response to our email earlier this month, urging your MEPs to sign up to the European Parliament’s Tibet Intergroup.45 MEPs have now signed up to the group but there’s still one more hurdle.
The Intergroup must be endorsed by at least three Political Groups (the equivalent to political parties in national parliaments) to be established.Please ask your MEPs to lobby their Political Group to vote for Tibet. Political Groups will vote for their priority list of Intergroups on 26 November. Even if your MEPs have not signed up to the Intergroup, they can prove their support for Tibet by ensuring a vote for it.
