Tibet is under severe military occupation by China. Tibetans in Tibet are subjected to gross human rights abuses, where peaceful protests are brutally suppressed and the local culture, religion and language is being wiped out by a ruthless oppressor. Against this repressive backdrop, UK company Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) is preparing to open a luxury hotel in Lhasa, Tibet's capital. The Tibetan people have had no say in that decision.   The ‘Resort Lhasa Paradise’ is aimed at attracting wealthy Chinese tourists and will do nothing but whitewash the brutal occupation of Tibet.   Opening a hotel in Lhasa in 2014 is like opening a hotel in Johannesburg in the era of apartheid. InterContinental still have time to make the right decision and stop ignoring the facts about the occupation of Tibet.
