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.
