Beijing Olympics Boycut: Mounting Moral Pressure
- CCP's crimes against humanity surfaces
Kathmandu, January 11-
As the date for the Winter Olypics in Beijing, China approaches, pressure has mounted heavily on the nation that has been oppressively ruled by a one party dictatorship for nearly a century now.
Power countries like the US, UK, Japan, Canada, and Asutralia have declared they won’t be represnetated by any high diplomatic officials.
Last week, Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, cited “genocide and crimes against humanity” in Xinjoang, a northwestern region of China. The Chinese government has harshly cracked down on Uyghurs.
Japan has said it won’t dispatch a government delegation to the event in February, but refused to call it a boycott. China is Tokyo’s largest trading partner. Japanese government spokesperson Hirokazu Matsuno said there were “no plans” for officials to attend the event. “As Tokyo 2020 demonstrated to the world, the Olympics and the Paralympics are festivals of peace and sports that give courage to the world,” Matsuno said in a press conference explaining the decision. “Japan believes it is important that common values shared by the international community such as freedom, human rights and the rule of law are respected in China.”
The world seems to be slowly but surely waking up to the horrifying fatcs that organ harvesting, forced sterilization, reeducation camps, experimental labs and many othere criminal business have been carried by the Chinese Communist Party for over two decades now.
