Why this petition matters

Started by Boycott China

The 2022 Winter Olympics (Genocide Games) to be hosted by China in 2022. 

It is extremely unfortunate that the Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar backed Beijing during a virtual meeting with his Russian and Chinese counterparts, Sergey Lavrov and Wang Yi.

This is despite ongoing border tensions at India's border where 20 Indian bravehearts led by Col. Santhosh Babu made the supreme sacrifice in June 2020, when China attacked Indian soldiers with medieval weapons in a barbaric manner. 

Nations like Australia, the US, Canada, Britain, and Lithuania are considering diplomatic boycotts of the games as well. This is to reprimand and mend China's provocative and destabilising actions including its track record over human rights abuses. 

China's reluctance to come out clean regarding the emergence of CoVID - 19 and its reluctance to conduct an independent inquiry into the COVID-19 outbreak in the Chinese city Wuhan; illegal occupation of Tibet and repression of Tibetans; territorial aggression on its neighbours including India; its human rights abuses against minorities including Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region; its military actions over Taiwan, as well as over the safety of Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai denoted China's ill intentions which claim itself to be a civilisational power.

The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics are scheduled to take place from February 4 to 20 2022, followed by the Paralympics from March 4 to 13. It is a mistake to let it happen and inappropriate on part of the Government of India to support China. Democracies across the world including the Government of India have clear responsibility to ensure that the Olympic Games are held in a country that respects international norms.

Thus we hereby demand the revocation of Beijing’s right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
