According to Yahoo News, a protest against the Beijing Winter Olympics was held on September 18 in Tokyo, Japan. Participants in the parade carried banners calling for a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and demanded that the international community pay attention to the CCP’s violation of human rights in minority areas.
The march was organized by the Beijing Olympic Winter Games Executive Committee to counteract human rights violations by the Chinese Communist Party. Dissidents from Uyghurs, Tibetans, Mongolians, Hong Kong and China participated in the protest with the support of Japanese activists. They claim that other countries in the world need to be alert to the CCP’s human rights violations in minority areas and Hong Kong. They also pointed out that it is unfair for the countries that uphold the values of transparency, democracy, human rights, and openness to treat Japan and China at the same level. Japanese diplomatic commentator Hideaki Kase said that the boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics would awaken the Chinese people to the Chinese Communist regime.
This year began with continued international voices calling for a boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics. On Aug 4, Mr. Wengui Guo, on behalf of the New Federal State of China, made a request to the International Olympic Committee to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics. Following the overwhelming majority of the EU’s proposal in July, calling on the leaders of member states to refuse to attend the Beijing Winter Olympics, the United Kingdom also passed a motion in the House of Commons of Parliament, calling on the government to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics. Human rights organizations are asking the world’s largest broadcasters, such as NBC Network, to cancel plans to report on the Beijing Winter Olympics. Although boycotting the Beijing Winter Olympics alone will not overthrow the CCP’s dictatorship, it will be part of a series of important sanctions, adding a straw to our great cause of destroying the CCP.
