(TibetanReview.net, Oct18, 2017) – Taiwanese activists have on Oct 17 joined a global campaign initiated by the International Tibet Network – a San Francisco-headquartered umbrella group for Tibet campaign groups across the world – that called for condemnation of President Xi over China’s continued repression of Tibet during the past five years under his leadership, reported focustaiwan.tw Oct 17.

The activists announced their plan at a press conference in Taipei addressed by Mr Tashi Tsering, chairperson of the Human Rights Network for Tibet and Taiwan. He was reported to have been joined by human rights activists from 17 nongovernmental organizations in Taiwan.

The Network has launched a series of global campaigns titled “Xi Fails Tibet” with the aim of bringing worldwide attention to the deteriorating situation in Tibet since 2012.

As a part of its campaign, the Network has published a report titled “Five Years of Failure in Tibet”. The report asks governments and international institutions to strongly and publicly condemn China’s growing religious and cultural repression.

The press conference was also addressed by Lin Hsin-yi, executive director of the Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty, who has said, “As China seeks to extend its influence worldwide, it is trying to roll back democracy in other countries and is exporting anti-human rights values. We find that unacceptable and we’ll continue to speak out.”

Also, Lee Peng-hsuan, member of the International Tibet Network, has said, “We can also post messages (on the Facebook page of the Great Hall of the People) telling Beijing that its encroachment on human rights has not gone unnoticed. We are watching.”

And Yibee Huang, chief executive officer of the group Covenants Watch, has said Taiwan should step forward in the fight against such injustices because the country would be the first to bear the brunt of the rise of an autocratic China.
