TCHRD Press Statement
October 8, 2010,

Dharamsala -- The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights
and Democracy (TCHRD) congratulates Mr. Liu Xiabo
on being confered this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
The Centre is deeply moved at the recognition
given to him for he embodies the views and
courage of the Chinese people. The nation of
China deserves this award for the millions of
people who strived for freedom, dignity and human rights.

It is extremely encouraging to learn that the
Nobel Committee defied the threat issued by the
state of People's Republic of China against
awarding this prestigious prize to Mr. Xiabo. In
recognizing him a strong message has passed
through the hearts and minds of the Chinese
people that the movement for human rights and
freedom in China is highly respected by the international community.

With the rise of China as a global power with
enormous economic prosperity in the last three
decades, it is about time the state allows
genuine civil and political rights for the
Chinese people. The Tibetans imprisoned for their
expression of opinion and beliefs will be highly
encouraged that Mr.Xiabo who has also advocated
strongly for freedom in Tibet has won the Nobel
Peace Prize which His Holiness the Dalai Lama won in 1989.
