IOC to Enact Anti-Doping Reform

The Russian doping scandal and the suspension of the Russian national team from the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang showed the scale of the doping usage problem in elite sports. At the same time, the current situation testifies to the deep system crisis and inefficiency of sports bureaucratic authorities. Actions taken by the IOC and WADA threaten the existence of the whole Olympic movement as the mechanism of international integration that unites nations and makes the World better. The sports officials set a dangerous precedent making clear that any athlete and national team could be suspended from taking part in competitions and deprived of rewards on the basis of indirect proofs. We, the undersigned, feel certain that the Olympic movement and fair-play spirit of the Olympic Games should be saved by the following urgent measures: 1. Abolish the practice of confessing the guilt of athletes just relying on the testimony of a witness and recognize the Russian athletes precedent as the civil and criminal law violation.2. Carry out an independent technical expertise of the anti-doping bottles to find out whether the scratch marks have been left on these bottles in a result of unauthorized opening or just represent the technical feature of the product.3. Create the independent anti-doping institute instead of WADA which have demonstrated its inability to fight against doping; to ensure the presence of as many nations as possible in the new organization. 4. Increase the number of in-competition and out-of-competition anti-doping tests; to ban athletes from competitions if they require temporary or permanent usage of prohibited substances according to their Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

China: Respect Uyghur Rights Before Hosting 2022 Olympics (Uyghurche/中文/日本語/Türkçe/عربى)

China intends to host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing while committing what some are calling crimes against humanity in its far western region. The Uyghur population, a Turkic, mostly Muslim, ethnic group living primarily in the far western region of China, is now facing the destruction of their cultural identity as a result of deliberate Chinese policies. Hundreds of political indoctrination (or internment) camps dotting the region hold an estimated 1-2 million Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in arbitrary detention to undergo ‘thought transformation’. The centers are designed to force detainees to pledge allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party, renounce religious beliefs, discontinue the use of their mother language, and abandon their way of life. The stated spirit of the Games is one of openness and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles, placing 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.” Furthermore, belonging to the Olympic Movement requires compliance with the Olympic Charter as well as recognition by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). At present, the Chinese government is not behaving in line with the standards set out in the Charter itself and will need to radically change course ahead of 2022. The IOC has a clear responsibility to ensure that the Olympic Games are held in a country that respects international norms. If China maintains its internment camp policy into 2022, they are not a fit host. The choice is simple: Close the camps and respect Uyghur rights, or lose the Olympics. Please sign this petition to urge the IOC to take urgent action ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan to ensure the camps are closed ahead of the Olympics in 2022. ------------------------------------ 中文 中国在举办2022年奥运会之前必须关闭拘留营 中国在筹备着北京2022年冬季奥林匹克运动会的同时在其西部地区犯危害人类罪。 维吾尔族是一个主要生活在中国西部地区的突厥穆斯林族群,但是由于中国的蓄意政策,现在面临着文化认同的破坏。 此区现在至少有数百个政治灌输营地,12百万维吾尔人和其他突厥穆斯林被任意拘留强迫着进行“思想转变”。这些拘留者被迫使宣誓效忠中国共产党,放弃宗教信仰,停止使用母语,放弃他们的生活方式。 奥运会的精神是开放和尊重普遍的基本道德原则,将体育运动“用于促进人类和谐发展,以促进有关维护人类尊严的和平社会”。 国际奥委会有明确的责任去确保每一届奥运会是在一个尊重国际规范的国家举行。 如果中国将把拘禁营政策维持到2022年,那北京就根本没有任何权利举办2022 奥运会。 北京的选择很简单:关闭数百个拘禁营,尊重维吾尔人的权利或者干脆输掉即将到来的奥运会。 请签署此请愿书,敦促国际奥委会在2020年东京夏季奥运会之前采取紧急行动,确保在2022年举办一个没有种族灭绝的奥运会。 ------------------------------------ 日本 中国は2022年のオリンピック開催前に収容所を閉鎖するべきである#NoRightsNoGames 中国は2022年の冬季オリンピックを北京で開催する意向を示しながら、西北部地域では人道に対する罪を犯し続けている。 ウイグル人、主として中国の西北部に住んでいるチュルク語を話す民族で、主にイスラム教徒の彼らは、意図的な中国の民族政策の結果として、自らの文化的アイデンティティの破壊に直面している。 この地域に点在する何百という政治的教化収容所では、推定1〜200万のウイグル人と他のチュルク語ムスリムを恣意的な拘禁下に置き、「思想転換教育」を施されている。こうした施設では、被拘禁者に中国共産党への忠誠を誓約し、宗教的信念を放棄し、母国語の使用を中止し、そして彼らの生活様式を放棄するよう強制している。 オリンピック大会で標榜されている真髄は、スポーツを、普遍的、基本的な倫理原則をあまねく広げ、尊重するものとして位置付けると共に、「人類の尊厳の保全に関わる平和な社会を促進するために、人類の調和のとれた発展のために」あると捉えるものである。 さらに、オリンピック・ムーブメントに参加するには、オリンピック憲章の遵守とIOCによる承認が必要である。 現時点では、中国政府は憲章自体に定められた基準に沿って行動しておらず、2022年に向けて根本的に行いを変える必要がある。 IOCは、オリンピックが国際的な規範を尊重する国で開催されることを保証する明確な責任を負っています。 中国が2022年までその収容所の方針を維持するのであれば、それらは適切ではありません。 選択は簡単です:キャンプを閉じるか、オリンピックを放棄するかです。 是非嘆願書に署名し、日本の東京で開催される2020年夏季オリンピックに向けてIOCが緊急措置を講じ、2022年のオリンピックが開催される前に、収容所が確実に閉鎖するよう勧告しましょう。 ------------------------------------ Türkçe Çin devleti 2022 Olimpiyatlarina ev sahibliği yapmadan önce toplama kamplarını kapatmalıdır. #HakYokiseOlimpiyatlardaYok Cin bir taraftan 2022 Kış Olimpiyatlarına Pekingde ev sahibliği yapmağa hazırlanırken diğer taraftan uzak batı bölgesinde insanlık suçu işlemeye devam ediyor. Bir Türk ırkı ve coğunluğu müslüman olan, Çinin özellik ile uzak batı bölgesinde yaşamakta olan  Uygurlar şu an kendi kültürel kimliklerinin paramparça edilmeye calışıldığı, kasıtlı bir Çin politikası ile karşı karşiyalar. Şu an Çinde yüzlerce doktinreştirme kamplarında 1-2 milyon arasında Uygur ve başka Türk kökenlik müslümanlar sebepsiz bir hapse mahkum edilip düşünce dönüşümüne zorlanıyorlar. Bu kampların var olmalarının amacı mahkumleri Çin Kommunist Partisine zorla sadık olmaya zorlamak, onları dinlerinden uzaklaştırmak, ana dillerini unutturmak ve kendi yaşam tarzlarını terk ettirmektir. Olimpiyatların hedefi dünyaya evrensel ve temel hak ve hürriyetlere gösterilen saygıyı açıklığa getirmek ve spor ile insanlığın huzurlu gelişmesini ve ilerlemesini sağlamak. Böylece insanlık değerinin barışdolu bir toplum nezdinde korunması gercekleştirmeyi hedefliyor Olimpiyatlar. Üstelik Olimpiyatlara bağlı olmak için Olimpiyat Antlaşmasına uyum sağlamak ve Uluslararası Olimpiyat Komitesi (UOK) tarafından tanınmak temel bir şart. Şu an Çin devleti Olimpiyat Antlaşmasının temel prensiplerine uygun bir şekilde hareket etmiyor ve bu yüzden 2022ye doğru büyük değişiklikler yapması gerekiyor. Uluslararasi Olimpiyat Komitesinin büyük bir sorumluluğu var Olimpiyatların uluslar arası prensiplerin uyulduğu bir ülkede organize edilmesini temin etmek için. Eğer Çin devleti toplanma kampı politikasını uygulamağa devam edicek ise 2022ye kadar, ozaman Olimpiyatları organize etmeye laik bir ev sahibi değildir.

Populasi Uyghur, Turki, sebagian besar Muslim, kelompok etnik yang kebanyakan menempati wilayah barat pedalaman Cina, kini menghadapi kehancuran identitas budaya mereka sebagai hasil kebijakan-kebijakan Cina yang disengaja. Ratusan kamp indoktrinasi (atau pengasingan) yang memenuhi wilayah itu menampung sekitar 1-2 juta masyarakat Uyghur dan kaum Muslim Turki lainnya dalam penahanan sewenang-wenang untuk melalui proses ‘transformasi pemikiran’. Pusat-pusat yang dirancang untuk memaksa para tahanan untuk berjanji setia pada Partai Komunis Cina, menyangkal keyakinan agama, menghentikan penggunaan bahasa asli mereka, dan meninggalkan cara hidup mereka. Pernyataan semangat dari Pertandingan Olimpiade adalah keterbukaan dan hormat pada prinsip-prinsip etis fundamental, yang menempatkan olahraga “sebagai abdi perkembangan keharmonisan umat manusia, dengan tujuan menciptakan masyarakat yang damai yang peduli akan pelestarian martabat manusia.” Terlebih lagi, keterlibatan dalam Kegerakan Olimpiade mengharuskan kepatuhan pada Piagam Olimpiade serta pengakuan dari Komite Olimpiade Internasional (IOC). Saat ini, pemerintah Cina tidak berperilaku sesuai dengan standar-standar yang ditentukan dalam Piagam itu sendiri dan harus mengubah arah secara radikal sebelum tahun 2022. IOC memiliki tanggung jawab yang jelas untuk memastikan bahwa Pertandingan Olimpiade dilaksanakan di negara yang menghormati norma-norma internasional. Jika Cina mempertahankan kebijakan kamp pengasingannya hingga tahun 2022, mereka tidak layak menjadi tuan rumah. Pilihannya sederhana: Tutup kamp-kamp dan hormati hak-hak Uyghur, atau kehilangan Olimpiade. Mohon tandatangani petisi ini untuk mendesak IOC untuk mengambil tindakan segera sebelum Olimpiade Musim Panas 2020 di Tokyo, Jepang untuk memastikan kamp-kamp tersebut ditutup sebelum Olimpiade 2022.

東京オリンピック・パラリンピックでアニマルウェルフェア(動物福祉)のレベルを下げないで!

2020年の東京オリンピック・パラリンピック(以下東京オリンピック)は、これまでになく動物を苦しめるオリンピック・パラリンピックになろうとしています。 オリンピックの選手村や会場で提供される食事で使われる畜産物「調達基準」の動物福祉のレベルが、過去のオリンピックと比べて大きく低下したためです。 http://www.arcj.org/tokyoolympiccruelty/JP/ 世界的なイベントであるオリンピックでは、社会的責任が問われるようになっており、環境や社会、人権や動物に配慮されたイベントであることが求められるようになっています。 とくにロンドンオリンピックからは、動物への配慮が加わり、会場で使われる畜産物のアニマルウェルフェアが高められてきました。そのレベルを、東京オリンピックが下げてしまうことになります。 例えば卵の基準は ◎ロンドンオリンピック=放し飼い以上の卵(放し飼い・オーガニック) ◯リオオリンピック=ケージ飼育ではない卵(平飼い・放し飼い等) ×東京オリンピック=飼育方法の規定なし=バタリーケージ飼育の卵もOK となります。 バタリーケージ飼育は、欧米、中南米、南アフリカ、韓国など世界中が廃止していっているものであり、劣悪飼育の象徴ともいえます。 日本ではまだバタリーケージ飼育が主流となっています。詳しくはこちら → http://www.arcj.org/tokyoolympiccruelty/JP/egg/ 豚肉は、 ◎ロンドンオリンピック=妊娠ストール(虐待的な拘束飼育)禁止 △リオオリンピック=規定はないが、大手企業が自主的に妊娠ストール廃止 ×東京オリンピック=飼育方法の基準なし=拘束飼育OK となり、虐待的飼育をされた豚肉が提供されることになります。この妊娠ストールも、世界的に廃止が進んでおり、EUや米国の10州、その他世界的な大手企業の多くが廃止していっています。 日本では豚の妊娠ストール飼育がいまだに増加しています。詳しくはこちら → http://www.arcj.org/tokyoolympiccruelty/JP/pig/ 東京オリンピックは過去のオリンピックよりも、動物を苦しめ、負のレガシーを残すことになります。 さらに、東京大会の後、2024年はパリ、2028年はロサンゼルスと続きますが、その2大会ではアニマルウェルフェアは向上することが見込まれ、東京オリンピックが残すであろう【負のレガシー】は、なお一層、際立つことでしょう。 詳細のレポートはこちらから → http://www.arcj.org/files/user/data/TOC_jp.pdf オリンピックアスリートも、ケージフリー、高速飼育フリーを求めています!http://legacyforanimals.com/   東京オリンピックで世界レベルのアニマルウェルフェアを採用し、卵であればケージフリー以上、豚肉であれば拘束飼育禁止とすることを求めます。 どうか、せめて、ロンドンオリンピックやリオオリンピックで守られてきたアニマルウェルフェアのレベルを、東京オリンピックで下げないでください。 人間だけが楽しむのではなく、動物たちにも思いやりを持ったオリンピック・パラリンピックを実現できるよう、ぜひご賛同よろしくお願いします。

Petitioning FINA & Cornel Marculescu, International Olympic Committee

Our sport is called "SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING "!

#synchroforever The IOC has requested FINA rebrand the sport of Synchronized Swimming, in an attempt to revitalize the popularity of the sport. In the past 30 years, the sport has increased in popularity, with new events being incorporated, males participating at the international level, new countries participating competitively in international competitions. What both parties are forgetting is Synchro (as we all call it) is a SPORT with extreme ATHLETICISM, POWER, STRENGTH, FLEXIBILITY and ENDURANCE. Renaming it as Artistic Swimming does nothing to convey the athleticism of our fabulous sport, if anything it's a lateral move in terms of branding and pays absolutely no respect to Synchronized swimmers, past and present. FINA has only just recently opened the door for Men to compete at Worlds, and this name change will be more of a deterant to males than a calling card. Synchronized Swimming today, compared to the 1950's, exemplifies the Olympic Motto of Citius, Altius, Fortius" - "Swifter, Higher, Stronger", and it does this better than many sports currently in the Olympics. We are a sport that is highly dependent on volunteers, and funding, the costs of changing the name at every level could potentially  cripple some organizations. Is IOC and FINA prepared to help fund this rebranding?  There is nothing wrong with rebranding, as the sport has developed and morphed so much over the last 50 years, with the increased technical difficulty, athleticism, and inclusion of Men. Please involve the Synchronized Swimming community in this decision and make it a positive move forward for the athletes, coaches, judges, and volunteers and clubs...past and present!
