richard-gere.jpgSeems like Richard Gere is speaking his mind about the human rights violations committed by the Chinese government against the people of Tibet ever since their invasion of the country in the 1940s. During the actor’s recent visit to Germany, the country that currently holds the presidency of the European Union as well as the top spot on the G-8, he said, “This is a moment of great possibility for not just punishing but encouraging China to become part of the modern world. Tibet should be ever-present in any discussion with China.”

The white-haired actor was seen with fellow activist Bob Geldorf during the Cinema for Peace shindig, a charity event that was conducted alongside the Berlin Film Festival, which benefitted the United Nations Children’s Fund as well as other humanitarian organizations. Gere has been with the Tibetan cause for a long time. His non-profit organization, the Gere Foundation, is one of the most active voices speaking out against the Tibetan exiles, as well as other humanitarian causes.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
