Petition to relocate the 2018 Winter Olympics from South Korea

This petition had 4 supporters

There are less than two months left before the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang but athletes and spectators of the games still have not got security guarantees, which sparks deep concern in connection with the rapidly deteriorating situation on the Korean Peninsula.

In the course of the current year the USA and South Korea conducted multiple joint military exercises, the largest of them were held in early December with the use of stealth fighters and bombers. Along with that, the USA is making plans for 'bloody nose' military attack on North Korea's nuclear facilities. As for North Korea, it called recent UN sanctions 'an act of war'. Tensions are mounting. However, the fact that China is preparing for large-scale refugee crisis and is about to muster the army is testimony to the fact that a war against North Korea is unavoidable and chances are high that the Winter Olympic Games and all its visitors will fall victim to it.

In respect of these facts and owing to clear war policy of the countries involved, the International Olympic Committee needs to arrive at a discretionary decision to relocate the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from South Korea to a safer place or consider total abortion of the games. In this case thousands of lives of athletes and foreign visitors are at stake. Security of people but not loss of face of IOC and South Korea should be the primary concern. This is the exact reason why it is important to support this petition and make organizers of the games give up on this fatal Olympic reckless attempt.
