Article Summary:

You might have noticed a lack of playing time for veteran Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter, but the Turkish big man has been keeping busy off the court trying to shine a light on human rights issues in China involving Tibet, Taiwan, and China’s ethnic Uighur population in the western side of the country.

With the Celtics already banned in China as a result of his activism, Kanter doesn’t have much to lose, and has been tearing into the country’s leaders on a near-daily basis. “My message to all freedom supporters watching this today is: We are stronger together. We must all #StandWithTaiwan, support Taiwan, and defend democracy. We must keep Taiwan free and safe,” wrote Kanter in a recent tweet.

Kanter’s activism has not gone unnoticed, with exiled Tibetans and even the president of Taiwan reaching out to Kanter in response to his flurry of posts, videos and other activism.
