The English Conservative party annual conference, which lauched September 30, is expected to be a bumpy affair, dominated by fractious debates on Brexit. Away however from the infighting and nationalistic posturing on leaving the European Union another nasty mess spoiled the gathering. A female Chinese national, seemingly representing CCTV began haranguing speakers at a fringe event that was discussing issues of freedom and human rights in Hong Kong. One of the organizers of the meeting was assaulted by the woman, who was taken away by the police. Meanwhile demands have been made in Chinese media that the ‘Human Rights Committee of UK Conservative Party’ “should stop interfering in China’s internal affairs and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs. The organizer of fringe event should apologize to the Chinese journalist.” SOURCE
Will Theresa May and her Conservative colleagues offer such an apology? You betcha, but it will be done behind closed doors! Will the Chinese ‘journalist’ be charged by police with assault? No way! Such is the level of appeasement towards China, a market of increasing dominance within the UK. especially as its political establishment contemplates the economic consequences of withdrawal from the EU!

We hope all friends and supporters of Tibet will be rooting for the Tibetan side during the competition.
In 1950 Chinese troops launched their major invasion of Tibet, since then Tibetans have become enslaved, oppressed and terrorized by China’s regime. Brutally denied human rights and their cultural and national freedom.
As 2018 begins everyone working towards our activism on Tibet will be making sure during the coming year that the just and true cause of Tibet is given maximum support.
In that effort no doubt we shall again be extended your amazing solidarity and generosity, we remain deeply humbled and appreciative of the help so kindly given.
