China’s top officials will gather in Beijing on 18 October for the 19th national congress of the Communist Party of China. This congress, will mark the start of President Xi Jinping’s second and supposedly last five-year term.
Xi’s leadership has been characterized by a wholesale effort to silence dissent—at home and abroad. On Xi’s watch, prominent human rights defenders have died in custody: notably Tibetan Buddhist leader Tenzin Delek Rinpoche and Nobel Peace Laureate Liu Xiaobo. China is adopting tactics intended to bully and bribe governments, academic institutions and inter-governmental agencies into silence. It’s time for the silencing to stop!
Read and share our joint report “Five Years of Failure in Tibet” with your elected representatives.
