Tashi Wangchuk, an innocent Tibetan shopkeeper and language advocate, has been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment by Chinese authorities on politically motivated charges of ‘inciting separatism’.

His Crime? Publicly seeking his right to Tibetan language education. 

Tashi has already spent over two years in Chinese detention despite the fact that he has committed no crime under both international law and that of the Chinese constitution. He is now not due to be released until January 2021.

An @LFC supporter has let us know that the Tibet Water logo wasn’t featured in @LiverpoolFC programme this week! We don’t know what this means but we hope it’s a sign that the club has realised how the sponsorship was tantamount to endorsing the serious, systematic abuses of the #Tibetan people by #China and that they’ve dropped #TibetWater from their list of sponsors.

Please join us to ask @LFC what it means.
