Why boycott?

Campaign for Uyghurs is working with partners and coalitions to call for a relocation and boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. The Chinese regime is actively committing genocide against the Uyghurs in East Turkistan (called the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region by China), and the International Olympic Committee refuses to acknowledge the gross human rights violations of the CCP. The IOC has remained willfully ignorant of the calls for a boycott and the disgrace of allowing a genocidal regime to host a prestigious event that promotes peace, unity, and dignity.

Here are a list of campaigns we’re working on that you can visit to learn more from and take action:

Berlin-Beijing Olympics: The Berlin-Beijing Olympics coalition is a Jewish-led campaign started by Campaign for Uyghurs, The Peace Project, and the Jewish Movement for Uyghur Freedom. The aim of Berlin-Beijing Olympics is to highlight the dangers of the Beijing 2022 Olympics and call for a boycott of the games. Email your representatives and sign our petition through the Berlin-Beijing Olympics.

#NoBeijing2022: #NoBeijing2022 is a coalition of Uyghur, Tibetan, Hong Kong, and Chinese organizations that are calling for a boycott of the Beijing 2022 Olympics. Campaign for Uyghurs is proud to be a part of this coalition fighting to make sure a genocidal regime does not get to host a prestigious world event. Join the Global Day of Action on June 23, 2021 and be a part of No Beijing 2022!

Boycott Beijing 2022: We call on all governments and people, including all National Olympic Committees and Olympic athletes, to boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games. Endorse the Boycott here.

TEMPLATE FOR CANADIAN MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT:

Dear Mr/Ms/Mrs (Name),

My name is FIRST NAME LAST NAME, and I am a constituent in your riding. Recently, the House of Commons overwhelmingly voted to pass a motion acknowledging China’s abuses against the Uyghurs as a genocide. This motion was amended to add discussion about the relocation of the Winter 2022 Olympics from Beijing as it continues to commit genocide. I am writing to urge you to call for the relocation of the 2022 Winter Olympics from Beijing. A prestigious global event that promotes peace and unity on Earth should not be tarnished by allowing a genocidal regime to host, and for the world to stand by. Canada should not support the IOC decision to continue to allow Beijing to host.

Thank you for your concern, and I look forward to hearing your positive response.

Regards,
