Message of Support from Filmmaker Ken Loach

May 6, 2010

Thank you to Ken Loach for sending us this message of support!

“The action by the Chinese authorities against Dhondup Wangchen is an affront to the principle of freedom of expression. A healthy society is one that thrives on dissent and the peaceful resolution of conflicting views. Dhondup Wangchen’s ‘crime’ is to allow voices to be heard who were otherwise silenced. That is precisely the responsibility of writers and film makers. By its suppression of brave people like Dhondup Wangchen, China continues to lose face in the world.”
