Wooldridge in Tibet Minister Wooldridge’s visit to Tibet will be opposed and viewed with alarm by many Australians who support freedom for Tibet, Greens Senator Bob Brown said today from Liffey in cental Tasmania.

“He will be the most senior Australian Government person yet to be used as a patsy by the Beijing communist regime for their military occupation of Tibet,” Senator Brown said.

“The test of Michael Wooldridge will be how strongly he denounces the military occupation and demands democracy and self determination for Tibetans. I’m not holding my breath,” Senator Brown said.

Bob Brown made a secret visit to Tibet in 1999 becoming only the second parliamentarian in the world to visit Tibet without official Chinese approval. His trip provided more first-hand evidence of the brutality of the Chinese occupation of this beautiful land. For a full report on that trip visit www.greens.org.au/bobbrown.
