Czechs rally in support of Tibet
CTK[Tuesday, March 11, 2008 13:18]
Human rights observance in China has not improved, protesters said.
Human rights observance in China has not improved, protesters said.
Prague, March 10 - About a hundred people met outside the Chinese embassy in Prague Monday afternoon, carrying banners and Tibetan flags, and lighting candles in commemoration of the 49th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising against Chinese oppression.

The demonstration, part of the Day of Tibet, was organised by Amnesty International.

In a separate action in protest against the situation in Tibet, the Czech Greens, a junior ruling party, put out the Tibetan flag in the window of their room in the lower house.

Addressing the rally in front of the embassy, the organisers recalled that in 2001, when China was chosen as the 2008 Olympics venue, it pledged to improve the situation in the human rights area.

This has not happened, however, AI members said.

Many demonstrators signed an open letter to the Chinese ambassador in Prague expressing concern at the violation of the rights and freedoms of people in China, mainly in Tibet.

Katerina Jacques, chairwoman of the Greens deputies' group, told CTK that Petr Kynstetr, head of the Lower House Office, had not approved the Greens' decision to hoist the Tibetan flag.

In spite of this, the Greens put the flag out. It has not been hoisted on the Lower House's main pole but in the window of the Greens' room, complemented with the party logo so that it is clear that it reflects the position of the Greens, not the whole lower house.

Jacques said the lower house will vote on a a draft resolution in support of Tibet at its forthcoming session.

The draft has been prepared by friends of Tibet among the deputies. "I believe we will gain a sufficient number of votes," Jacques said.

According to the Lungta association, a total of 348 town halls across the Czech Republic hoisted Tibetan flags Monday.
