In the fight against authoritarianism & occupation, every single individual is responsible for upholding an equitable & inclusive space. This culture within the human rights community must be addressed head on. Thank you @chungchingkwong for taking the first step ✊🏽 #MeToo
1/ Can we get some #metoo in the human rights community? Recent example: one very high profile award winning activist (former athlete) has been touring conferences preying upon young women. [THREAD.]

Embassy PRC London took it way too far w #DrewPavlou. Won’t believe the “you have until 12p” email and hope for forensics. Beijing crossing another dangerous line so wishing them a weekend of reeducation and kicking it off w a little EPMD. #PRXi #ChineseEmbersXi #PRXiEmbassyLied

It was on this day in 2001 that the IOC awarded the 2008 #Olympics to Beijing. The Games were used as an excuse to strip the peoples of Tibet and Xinjiang of their human rights. The consequences are still being felt today. 159 Tibetans have self immolated in protest since 2009.

With 8 more days to go for #DalaiLama’s Birthday, we look at how #CCP has curbed celebrations in #Tibet in the past. Despite these obstacles many #Tibetans had defied the govt & held celebrations both publicly & privately. A THREAD. @NetTibet @hrw @CHRDnet

When putting my 7-yr-old child to bed last night, she said: people talk about Russia & Ukraine at the playground. Why aren’t people talking about China & Tibet. Had no idea young kids talk about global politics. Breaks my heart she had to ask why the world doesn’t discuss Tibet

#FeelingProud of Tibetan activist (and former @TheTibetNetwork Co-Chair) @KyinzomDhongdue for her tireless work to stand -up against China's occupation of Tibet and human rights abuses #GoKyinzom #Resist #FreeTibet #FreeUyghurs #FreeHongKong ✊🥇
Australia & #China can’t “reset” relationship whist Chinese Govt continues gross human rights abuses. We’ll resist. We’ll fight until Tibetans & Uyghurs are free from China’s occupation of our homelands. Today’s disruption will be the first of many for new Chinese Ambassador.
