Subject: Boycott petition successful
Oct 07 2014 07:21 PM

The petition to boycott the South Africa Nobel Peace Summit unless His Holiness was allowed to attend was successful. Kudos to Tibetan National Congress (TNC) for implementing this campaign which achieved over 10,000 signatures. Kudos to the Summit organizers who agreed to cancel the South African Summit to be re-located to anther city. And thanks to the Nobel Peace laureates who agreed to boycott the Summit & stand in solidarity with the Dalai Lama.

But where was the CTA in all this? The CTA was completely silent when the SA Govt denied His Holiness a visa to attend this Summit. The CTA was silent when TNC launched its boycott petition. Only after the decision to re-locate the Summit was announced did the Sikyong speak about this, but failed to give proper credit to TNC for its efforts.

Is the CTA so afraid of the Chinese Communist Party that they won't even speak out for His Holiness when He is unfairly denied a visa because of political pressure from the Chinese Govt?
