Liu Xiaobo

Liu Xiaobo

The international Campaign for Tibet offers our deepest condolences to Liu Xia and her family on the passing away of Nobel Laureate Liu Xiaobo.

In life as well as in death Liu Xiaobo represented the best of what China can be.

Unfortunately, by not heeding to domestic and international humanitarian requests to respect the will of Liu Xiaobo to be treated abroad, the Chinese Government continues to clearly show that it does not deserve to be considered as a major world power as it purports to be.

Furthermore, the tragic circumstances of Liu Xiaobo’s death will remain as an indelible blot in the history of China.

The least China can do, is to try to redeem itself and be considerate towards the wishes of Liu Xia and her family for their future.
