Labour MP Louisa Wall has agreed to present a petition to the House of Representatives asking New Zealand to stage a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. The petition is due to be presented on October 19, 2021.

The Clerk of the House will announce the petition in the House, and the House will then refer it to a select committee for consideration.

Jay Shak created the petition on behalf of Himalaya New Zealand.

“Under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party, over a million Uighur people are reported to be locked up in concentration camps in Western China. International sources have reported on forced sterilisation, forced labour, systematic torture, and rape in Xinjiang,” reads the petition reason.

“Analysis in March by a US-based think-tank, the Newlines Institute for Strategy and Policy, found China had breached every single article of the UN genocide convention in its treatment of Uyghurs and is committing genocide.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, Hong Kong and other minorities in China have sparked a worldwide effort to boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

The CCP’s Winter Olympics have also been coined the “Genocide Games” and “Genocide Olympics”.

The Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC), Women’s Rights Without Frontiers (WRWF) and an expanding coalition of leading Chinese freedom fighters, national security professionals, faith leaders and human rights activists have also created a website to petition against the Genocide Olympics.

According to the website, the Genocide Games sponsors are Airbnb, Alibaba Group, Allianz, Atos, Bridgestone, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, General Electric, Intel, Omega, Panasonic, Proctor & Gamble, Samsung, Toyota and Visa, Inc.

The European Parliament recently voted to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics, and pressure is mounting on the US and other democracies to refuse participation in the sports event.
