Activists unfurled a Tibetan flag and a banner that said “no genocide” at the flame-lighting ceremony for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics in Greece on Monday, 18th October, 2021.
Tibetans, Uyghurs, Hongkongers, Taiwanese, Southern Mongolians, and Chinese rights activists, and their supporters are taking action united in calling for #NoBeijing2022
The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics is set to happen amid one of the world’s worst crackdowns against freedom, democracy, and human rights
- At least TWO million Uyghur, Kazakh and Uzbek Muslims are detained in “re-education camps” undergoing systematic torture, rape and political re-education.
- Illegally occupied Tibet is listed as the worst place in the world for rights, alongside Syria.
- In Hong Kong, the Chinese government has implemented a draconian National Security Bill that effectively criminalises protest and curtails any remaining human rights.
- Protests by Southern Mongolians, whose rights, language and culture being eradicated, are put down with force
- Detention & disappearance of countless Chinese lawyers, feminists & activists
- Intimidation and geopolitical bullying of Taiwan and aggression and expansion across borders – in the South China Sea and India-Tibet border – present a clear threat to regional and global security
