On November 25th local time, according to media, Lithuania and Australia joined the campaign to boycott the Beijing Olympic Winter Games in February next year, which is the newest addition to the alliance against the CCP’s Winter Olympics within one week following the boycotts of the U.S. and the U.K..
Lithuania’s sports minister, Jurgita Šiugždinienė, unequivocally pronounced that she would not attend the Beijing Winter Olympics and to her knowledge, neither would other Lithuanian officials.
Last week, 17 members of the Lithuania Seimas issued a joint appeal to the president, government officials, and all the politicians and athletes to unanimously boycott the Beijing Olympic Winter Games and dispatch no delegation to participate. They also pointed out that internationally major sporting events should not be held in totalitarian states. Otherwise, it becomes a whitewash of the totalitarian regime. Moreover, sports should not serve as political propaganda tools.
Meanwhile, the Australian government is considering diplomatic boycotts to the CCP’s Winter Olympics. Given the CCP’s notorious human rights record, especially its oppression of people in Hong Kong, Xinjiang, and Tibet, the Australian government tends to take action with like-minded countries.
