Rights groups call for boycott of Beijing 2022 games on International Olympic Day

Jun 23, 2021

Munich [Germany]: A group of campaigners representing Tibetan, Uyghur, Southern Mongolian, Hongkonger and Taiwanese people are holding rallies in over 60 global cities, calling on world leaders, Olympic bodies and sponsors to boycott Beijing 2022 Games.

On the International Olympic Day, people from around the world stand in solidarity to deliver the joint message that China must not be allowed to use Beijing 2022 to ‘sport-wash’ the genocide against the Uyghur people, and escalating repression in Tibet, Southern Mongolia, Hong Kong, and China proper, and the geopolitical bullying of Taiwan.

Dolkun Isa from World Uyghur Congress said: “Olympic Day is supposed to be a day to celebrate diversity, peace, friendship and respect, but China, the next Winter Games hosts, carrying out a genocide against Uyghurs and serious crimes against Tibetans, Mongolians, Hong Kongers and others, there is no room for celebration. Instead, we urge governments, National Olympic Associations, sponsors and athletes to use Olympic Day to commit to not supporting China’s heinous human rights abuses and say no to Beijing 2022.ANI
