Groups join in new call for full boycott of Beijing Olympics

A group of organizations officially called for a complete boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing on Monday over allegations of human rights violations against China, one day before a joint hearing is set to take place in the U.S. Congress focusing on the Games and the country’s human rights record, according to The Associated Press.

The World Uyghur Congress, Students for a Free Tibet, Campaign for Uyghurs, We the Hongkongers, Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center, China Against the Death Penalty and the Tibet Action Institute all joined focus to call for the boycott.

    “The Chinese government is committing genocide against the Uyghur people and waging an unprecedented campaign of repression in East Turkistan, Tibet and Southern Mongolia, as well as an all-out assault on democracy in Hong Kong,” the coalition said in a statement. “At the same time, the Chinese Communist Party is engaged in a merciless crackdown on Chinese human rights defenders, activists, faith communities and journalists, and implementing an intense strategy of intimidation and geopolitical bullying against Taiwan.

    “Participating in the Beijing Olympic Games at this time would be tantamount to endorsing China’s genocide against the Uyghur people and legitimizing the increasingly repressive policies of the totalitarian Chinese regime.”

'The time for talking with the IOC is over'

Calls for a boycott or removal of the Games from China have been growing in recent months, and multiple human rights groups have met with the International Olympic Committee regarding the issues.

Biden is becoming more like Jimmy Carter every day, first we have long gas lines, and now they may boycott the Olympics.
