Liu Xiaobo

The following states are supporting China's boycott of the Nobel Peace Prize award to imprisoned Chinese democracy activist Liu Xiaobo, founder of Charter 08:

Cuba
Colombia
Venezuela
Morocco
Ukraine
Serbia
Tunisia
Egypt
Sudan
Iraq
Iran
Kazakhstan
Saudi Arabia
Afghanistan
Russia
Pakistan
Vietnam
Philippines

What would you say was the common thread here? Oh yes, that's right - a shared respect for human rights and toleration of political dissent. Not sure why they were invited to attend the ceremony in the first place.
