Article Summary:

The veteran center said that the Chinese dictatorship is “Erasing Tibetan identity and culture” in his post.

“I’m here to add my voice and speak out about what is happening in Tibet. Under Chinese government’s brutal rule, Tibetan people’s basic rights and freedoms are non-existent. They are not allowed to study and learn their language and culture freely. They are not allowed to travel freely. They are not allowed to access information freely. The Tibetan people are not even allowed to worship freely,” said Kanter. “There have been more than 5,000 political prisoners in Tibet the last 25 years. Did you know that simply owning a photo of the Dalai Lama in Tibet is grounds for arrest?

“I say shame on the Chinese government,” Kanter added. ‘”

Kanter did not play in Wednesday night’s Celtics opener in New York, but ahead of the game, he shared images of his game sneakers, which included “Free Tibet” and images of the Tibetan flag.
