Nancy Pelosi stands with Tibet, criticizes Chinese rule

U.S. congressional leader Nancy Pelosi spoke in front of Tibetans. She talked about the human rights abuses that persist under Chinese Communist Party rule.

Pelosi spoke about tactics used by the Chinese regime to silence dissenting voices, “China uses its economic leverage to silence the voices of friends of Tibet, but if we do not speak out against oppression in Tibet and in the rest of China because of China’s economic power we lose all moral authority to talk about human rights anywhere else in the world. We will not be silenced. You will not be silenced. So the brutal tactics of the Chinese government, I won’t go into them because his holiness prayed for me that I would rid myself of my negative attitude about dwelling on the negative too much, but the brutal tactics of the Chinese government to erase religion, culture and language on the Tibetan people challenges the conscience of the world. We will meet that challenge, working together we will meet that challenge.”

She spoke at the Tibetan outpost of Dharamsala, in India. Seven other U.S. politicians are also making the visit.

Pelosi is current minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is the highest ranking U.S. female politician ever.
