The Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) and Women’s Rights Without Frontiers (WRWF) in coordination with a large and growing coalition of leading Chinese freedom-fighters, national security professionals, faith leaders and human rights champions are standing against the 2022 “Genocide Games” in Beijing. We are determined to prevent the Chinese Communist Party from being rewarded for its atrocities against millions of Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in western China, as well as the CCP’s myriad other crimes against humanity.
We call for the 2022 Winter Olympics to be moved from China to any other country that honors the spirit of the Olympic Charter, which pledges to “place sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind, with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.” We believe that China’s abhorrent human rights record – which it stubbornly defends – is an odious betrayal of the world’s finest athletes, who seek to compete in the noble spirit of the Charter.
Therefore, we call upon you to join us in insisting that the U.S. and International Olympic Committees act promptly to ensure that next February will see the celebration of the “Freedom Olympics” in a venue outside of China, instead of the “Genocide Games” in Beijing.
