Former French presidential candidate backs “political boycott” call
Former French presidential candidate Corinne Lepage of the CAP 21 party yesterday said she supported a “political boycott” of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, along the lines proposed by Reporters Without Borders. “CAP 21 hopes that France, the country of human rights, will urge the international community and the European Union to press for an end to the cultural genocide to which the Tibetan population is subjected,” Lepage said.
