A Global Petition to G20+1 (Myanmar) Governments
We request the Governments of G20 Countries and Myanmar to boycott China's Belt and Road Initiative and other economic joint-projects for Communist China Government’s murdering dissident Liu Xiaobo, and to urge for the release of his wife Liu Xia
The Chinese Government dictated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecuted the intellectual Liu Xiaobo, who advocated democracy and constitutional reform in China. In 2008, Liu, together with his friends, made public the Charter 08, advocating that China put into practice freedom, human rights, equality, republicanism, democracy and constitutionalism. As a consequence, Liu was sentenced to jail for 11 years by the Communist China Government for "inciting subversion of state power". Meanwhile, Liu's innocent wife, Liu Xia, has been placed under house arrest and other ways of having her freedom deprived has not been released even today, such that she is now suffering from depression.
In June 2017, the Communist China Government announced that Liu Xiaobo was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. Media were disallowed to report the case freely, including interview with Liu, his family and friends. All related news was released by the Government, and Liu's family and friends were prevented from visiting him in the hospital.
Against Liu's and his wife's will, Communist China Government disallowed the couple to seek medical help overseas. On July 13, 2017, Liu Xiaobo died. Based on the situation above, there is good reason to believe that Liu was murdered by the Communist China Government. Berit Reiss-Andersen, Chairman of the Nobel Prize Committee, made a statement to chastise the Communist China Government for being responsible for Liu's death. Moreover, the Communist China Government rejected Liu family’s request to return Liu’s bone ash but ordered to throw it into the sea, and Liu Xia is still now under Communist China Government’s control being deprived freedom. All these acts of Communist China Government have violated the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Beijing signed in 1998.
Thus, we make the following requests of leaders of the G20+1 (Myanmar) Governments
Boycott the Belt and Road Initiative of the Communist China Government; Stop all related investments; and Boycott other economic joint-projects of China in your country's territory until the followings are realized:--
1. Stop Liu Xia's (Liu Xiaobo's wife) house arrest and set her free; Stop harassing Liu Xiaobo's and Liu Xia's family.
2. Liu Xiaobo's reputation is restored; the Communist China Government announces that Liu never committed "inciting subversion of state power".
3. Release all human right defenders in China.
4. The Communist China Government holds dialogues with all Chinese citizens, discussing the political and social reform directions as advocated by Liu and his friends in Charter 08.
Grounds of Boycott:
1. Judging from China's past records of integrity, for example, her violations of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which she signed in 1998, and her recent announcement that the Sino-British Joint Declaration no longer has any practical significance, China's integrity is already bankrupt. Working together with China in business activities like the Belt and Road Initiative involves the risk of being cheated.
2. As the Communist China Government has no sense of integrity, which is the most basic moral responsibility, working together with her will endanger your country's interest.
3. Although Communist China gradually becomes a significant leader of the global economy, she has been unjustly persecuting dissidents. Working with someone lacking moral sense and succumbing to her wealth power may lead the global economy to be irrevocably swallowed by her and place the whole world's well-being in great danger.
