Jan. 26, 2024 -- A total of 73 Chinese civil society organizations on Wednesday protested against false information about the Xizang autonomous region in an open letter to the president of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Over the past period, some organizations have been using the platform of the UN Human Rights Council to spread false information and cause trouble on a large scale, with the purpose of attacking and smearing China, the letter said.
These practices completely ignore the history and reality of Xizang, disregard the tremendous achievements in the development of human rights in Xizang and lack basic objectivity and truthfulness, it said.
"We strongly oppose the maliciously fabricated and baseless accusations, and object to the politicization, instrumentalization and stigmatization of human rights in Xizang."
In today's Xizang, governments at all levels and people of all ethnic groups are working to promote political stability, social harmony, economic development, ethnic unity, religious harmony, rule of law and ecological well-being, ensuring more comprehensive protection of basic human rights, according to the letter.
Among the civil society organizations that signed the letter were the China Society for Human Rights Studies, the China Foundation for Human Rights Development, and the China Association for Preservation and Development of Tibetan Culture.
