Liverpool FC drops deal with Tibet water deal following international outcry
[Tuesday, September 11, 2018 20:12]

DHARAMSHALA, Sep. 11: Leading English football club Liverpool FC has reportedly put an end to their controversial deal with Chinese bottled water company following outcry from pro-Tibet NGO’s and the international community.

Consumer group SumOfUs, a coalition of NGO’s from around the world that launched a campaign urging the club to drop the deal said on September 7 that the club has “opted not to renew the controversial deal”.

Free Tibet which is an organisation that took part in the campaign tweeted, “After months of campaigning, over 86k petition signatures, 4k emails to the club's owner, billboards, protests and more...#LiverpoolFC has finally DROPPED their deal with #TibetWater - a company that exploits Tibet's occupation to steal and sell their water. Well done everyone”.

In July 2017, Liverpool FC announced the partnership declaring Tibet Water Resources Ltd (TWRL), a Chinese company known for commercially exploiting Tibet’s water resource, as their official regional water partner in China.

Since then rights groups, common Tibetans and fans of the prestigious football club has spoken against the deal and urged the management to call off the deal. Tibet organisations, including the International Tibet Network, Free Tibet and Tibet Society, among many others have campaigned in that direction.

Liverpool FC has had a promising run in their latest domestic campaign, winning all of their four opening games. The club which has a decorated European record has also returned to the most prestigious European club competition, the Champions’ league.
