Tibet: From ‘Free Tibet’ London – Tibet remains the second least free place in the world.




From ‘Free Tibet’ – London:

Tibet remains the second least free place in the world in Freedom House’s annual survey.

Freedom House, the influential American human rights and democracy organisation, published its annual Freedom in the World report (PDF) today. The report assesses political freedom in countries and territories across the world and gives a damning assessment of political rights and civil liberties in occupied Tibet.

Tibet was classified overall as being ‘Not free’. Using a scale from 1 to 7 (with 1 being most free and 7 being least free) Tibet was rated a 7 for both political rights and civil liberties.

Only 13 countries and territories received this lowest possible grade, including North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
