A Trinity College Dublin committee rejected the Dalai Lama’s nomination for an honorary degree – after former President Mary McAleese, Trinity College’s chancellor, expressed concerns about a “serious” backlash from the Chinese government.
The Sunday independent noted that the Trinity Committee, which makes recommendations on honorary degrees to the University Board of Directors, met on December 16, 2019 in the University’s Long Room Hub.
I think that Mc Aleese and Trinity are a disgrace for refusing to present the Dali Lama with an honorary degree – in case it upset China!
The Dali Lama is an international symbol of peace and a global supporter of enlightenment and wisdom.
Why are people so willing to appease people like the Chinese and Putin – war mongers and threats to the world ?
I know Russia and China are powerful and have nuclear weapons.
But if we give them the message that we are afraid of them, then we will forever bully us forever.
Why should China sensitivity stop an Irish University from honouring the Dali Lama.
