DHARAMSHALA, June 21: A conference “Situation in Tibet and the Future of Hong Kong” featuring scholars and peers from Taiwan and Hong Kong was held in Hong Kong recently. Organized and sponsored by the Tibet Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, 2047 Hong Kong Monitor, and the New School for Democracy on June 19, the first of its kind convention was organized to beget support and cooperation, similar to which was achieved at the “Finding common ground – the International Conference of Sino-Tibetan Friendship Associations 2016” held in April in Taipei.

The Office of Tibet in Taiwan in a report mentioned that the, “conference highlighted the reality of the situation in Tibet today and the way China’s policies have departed from the terms of the 17 Point Agreement, which was the basis of the ‘one country, two systems’” .

Nearly 40 scholars and peers from Hong Kong and Taiwan, Tibetans and Tibetan movement activists as well as Hong Kong NGO community, Consulates in Hong Kong and the media were invited for the conference.

Key speakers included John Clancy from the China Human Rights Lawyers Concerned Group, Tenzin Namdak of the Welfare Society for Tibetans in Taiwan, Editor in chief of “The Sky Above Tibet” Hui-chuan Lu, Taiwan National Chengchi University Professor Lee Yeau-tarn and Students for a Free Tibet – Taiwan executive member Cheng Kai-Jung. Issues such as human rights, democratization, current political leadership, repressive policies employed by China, environmental protection, religion and culture were discussed at the event.

Taiwanese parliamentarian and musician Freddy Lim said via a video message, “I learned about the history of Tibet and the Dalai Lama and became a Tibet supporter through music when I was in high school and college. There are so many rock bands in the world that support a free Tibet. I’ve also been inspired in recent years by Hong Kong pro-democracy movement, inspired by the courage of the young people in Hong Kong. And I hope that the new government in Taiwan as well as the new parliament will be more supportive for those oppressed people.”
