Tim Loughton MP message to GATPM’s launch of Report on 100 Atrocities committed by CCP:
I am Tim Loughton, M.P., and Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet in the U.K. Parliament.
I want to send you my greetings on this Human Rights Day, to the Global Alliance for Tibet & Persecuted Minorities.
And I welcome this report which you are launching on the 100 Atrocities committed by the Communist Party of China.
There is a whole range of things, that many people will not be aware of and the extent of some of the atrocities committed over many years, and that go back to the early days of the formation of the Chinese Communist Party, right up to date with the treatment of Peng Shuai, the Tennis player who seems to have been “disappeared” for daring to speak out about sexual abuse by a senior Chinese Communist Party official.
So as we prepare for Christmas we can speak out freely in the West, and I am here in the old part of Westminster in front of our Christmas Tree — we should remember those people who don’t have the luxury of free speech, free movement and the liberties which we take for granted in the West.
So it’s particularly pertinent, that even at this time of the year — particularly at this time of the year – that we should remember the human rights abuses that are still going on at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party and the government of China.
And so I send my best wishes to the Global Alliance for Tibet & Persecuted Minorities for the launch of this important event.”
