Intercontinental Lhasa Paradise – All Rooms Occupied

Free Tibet organisation: Intercontinental Lhasa Paradise - All Rooms Occupied

Intercontinental Hotels (the largest hotel chain in the world) is planning to open a ‘Resort Paradise’ in the city of Lhasa, capital of occupied Tibet, next year. The presence of a multinational corporation gifts priceless PR to a Chinese regime which is currently arbitrarily detaining hundreds of Tibetans for alleged involvement in protests.

The repression in Tibet by China is notorious. China’s reaction to protest has been to use brutal (sometimes lethal) force, collective punishment against communities, torture, communications clampdowns and more. Foreign journalists are not allowed into Tibet to document this; Reporters Without Borders have said that Tibet is even more locked down than North Korea.

The Free Tibet organisation is calling for a global boycott of the Intercontinental brand until it agrees to get out of Tibet.
