The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics will be in the background where atrocity crimes and other serious human rights violations committed by the Communist China government, 243 NGOs around the world said in a statement on Thursday (January 27th). With this in mind, the NGOs are urging governments to diplomatic boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics which scheduled on February 4th. It also urged athletes and sponsors not to legitimize the act of a government that abuse human rights.
Under the rule of CCP President Xi Jinping, the Chinese authorities have conducted massive prosecution to the minority ethnics such as Uyghurs, Tibetans, and all independent religious groups, according to a press release issued by Human Rights Watch, a New York-based human rights group. The mass persecution of human rights activists, feminists, lawyers, journalists and others has led to the disappearance of an independent civil society. In violation of international law, the Communist China government has destroyed the once vibrant civil society – Hong Kong, expanding technological surveillance area, severely removed the rights to speak, to associate and to peacefully assemble while allowing the use of forced labor.
The statement also accuses Olympic global partner sponsors Alibaba, Allianz, Atos, Coca-Cola, Intel, Omega, Procter & Gamble, Samsung and others for not fulfilling their human rights due diligence responsibilities.
As of now, countries that have explicitly expressed their diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics include the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Japan and Lithuania.
243 NGOs around the world called on governments, whether participating in a diplomatic boycott or not, they must utilize this opportunity to show concrete support for human rights defenders across China.
