Woeser and Wang Lixiong Under House Arrest in Beijing

High Peaks Pure Earth, July 09, 2014

Tibetan writer Tsering Woeser reported that she and her husband Wang Lixiong have once again been placed under house arrest. This time, the restrictions seem aimed at averting a meeting between Woeser  and visiting US secretary of stare, John Kerry.

She added that she would have liked to thank Kerry for the State Department "International Women of Courage" award she received last year. Due to travel restrictions, she was unable to accept the award in person. The department hailed Woeser as "the most prominent Mainland activist speaking out publicly about human rights conditions for China's Tibetan citizens."
