No Olympics for Human Rights Abusers
We promise to push for a change in venue or an international boycott and in any instance, we will agitate like nobody has seen before.
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is an authoritarian regime and systematically abuses the human rights of its citizens.
Well-documented evidence demonstrating the PRC’s contravention of the fundamental human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is present in uncensored media almost every day.
Specifically, examples of the PRC’s violation of fundamental human rights are shown the following articles of the UDHR:
Article 2 Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration…
Article 3 Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Article 5 No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
Article 9 No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
Article 12 No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation…
Article 18 Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion…
Article 19 Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression;…
We do not believe the Olympics should be hosted by a government that abuses its citizens human rights, including throwing three (3) million into concentration camps as is happening in East Turkestan / Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. To quote Assistant Secretary of Defense R.G. Schriver from a May 3, 2019 press conference:
…, the detention camps, given what we understand to be the magnitude of the detention, at least a million but likely closer to 3 million citizens out of a population of about 10 million, so a very significant portion of the population, what’s happening there, what the goals are of the Chinese government and their own public comments make that a very, I think, appropriate description.
Attendees should also be wary of the use of mass surveillance if/when they attend the games in the People’s Republic of China.
