AMSTERDAM (Reuters) — The Netherlands’ parliament on Thursday passed a non-binding motion saying that the treatment of the Uighur Muslim minority in China amounts to genocide, the first European country to make such a statement.

“A genocide on the Uighur minority is occurring in China,” the motion said, stopping short of directly saying that the country’s government was responsible.

The Dutch motion said that actions by the Chinese government such as “measures intended to prevent births” and “having punishment camps” fell under United Nations Resolution 260, generally known as the genocide convention.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s conservative VVD party voted against the resolution, which did not recommend the Cabinet take any specific action.

A spokesman for the government said it would respond to the motion later on Thursday.

It has continued to ferment in the international community, since the former U.S. Secretary of State Mr. Pompeo identified the CCP’s genocide against Xinjiang Uyghurs on January 19, 2021. More and more countries are beginning to face up to the evil of the CCP. Britain, the Czech Republic, Canada, and the Netherlands have all identified the CCP’s genocide atrocities in just about a month.

Britain, Canada, and the Netherlands are all parliamentary constitutional monarchies. The members of their parliaments are elected by the people and represent the legislatures of the people. The statements of these national parliaments show that the huge public opinion can no longer be blocked, even if high-level politicians try to cover up for the CCP Brutality. The room for them to blend with the CCP is getting smaller and smaller, and the price of going against public opinion will be unaffordable.
