Boycott Beijing 2022

Dear [Decision Maker],

We the undersigned call on the US government to boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games and to coordinate with other world governments to do the same. The Chinese government, under Xi Jinping's leadership, is carrying out an unprecedented campaign of repression in East Turkestan, Tibet, Southern Mongolia, Hong Kong, and in China itself. In particular, we are outraged that up to two million Uyghurs and Turkic Muslim people are being held in internment camps where they face torture, forced sterilization and systematic rape. This atrocity has been labeled "genocide" by the US government, and the Canadian and Dutch parliaments. An independent report by more than 50 global experts in international law has recently concluded that China's crimes against the Uyghur people constitute a clear case of genocide. Participation in the Winter Olympic Games in China would amount to an endorsement of these policies and legitimize the Chinese government's escalating authoritarianism and human rights crackdown. To organize a boycott of the Games would signal to Beijing that the international community stands firmly against genocide.
