Always Boycott Beijing No Matter What


PRESS RELEASE

Chinese Protest Against 
Beijing's Bid to Host the 2022 Winter Olympics

July 31

A group of Chinese activists protested outside the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles on Thursday against Beijing's Winter Olympic bid. They held placards that say “Human Rights, Not Olympics”, “No More Shame Games,” “Free Human Rights Lawyers” and “Free Gao Yu” . As the demonstrators chanted “We want freedom, we don’t want Olympics! Trample on human dignity, violate Olympic spirit!”. The consulate, which is usually open during the week, was closed for the day. 

Cheng Qiubo, an organizer of the rally said the consulate was already closed down as they arrived around 10am. A notice on the front door says the consultate would be closed on Friday, July 31.

A number of Chinese consulates were closed temporarily in Sydney, New York and San Francisco over the last two weeks as Chinese and Tibetans staged protests over worsening human rights abuses in China and Tibet. The IOC members are voting on July 31 in Kuala Lumpur to choose either Beijing or Kazakhstan’s Almaty would host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
L.A. demonstrators called for the immediate release of detained human rights lawyers, activists, members of their staff and families. Since July 9, more than 260 of them have been arrested, put under house arrest or interrogated. The protesters also held pictures of detained ailing Chinese journalist Gao Yu, urging for her release.

The protest in L.A. follows a number of prominent Chinese lawyers, journalists, scholars, activists, and former Tiananmen student leaders inside and outside China sending an open letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), urging its members to veto Beijings bid for the Winter Olympics because of what they call the “unprecedented human rights violations.”

The open letter accuses the Chinese government of carrying out an unprecedented attack on civil society, and that awarding Beijing the Olympics would contradict the Olympic goal of promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.

The first signers of the letter include Chinese students in the U.S. and Australia,  dissidents inside China, such as Hu Jia and Du Yanlin. Other signers include human rights defender Chen Guangcheng, lawyer Teng Biao, renowned economists He Qinglian and Xia Yeliang, political scientists Wu Qiang of Tsinghua University and Xia Ming of the City University of New York. 

Signers also include Tiananmen student leaders Wu’er Kaixi, Zhou Fengsuo and former athlete Fang Zheng, whose legs were crushed by a tank during the 1989 Massacre. Fang, a gold medalist and record holder, who now lives in San Francisco, has been banned from participating in sporting events in China since 1994, including the 2008 Paralympics.

Most of the signers are from inside China from all walks of life, the youngest is a 15-year-old high school student who says Olympics only “belong to a free China.” Human rights activist Hu Haibo who signed the letter posts a public statement on U.S.-based news website boxun.com, saying "any big peace movement events should not be held in China, a regime that's worse than the Nazi's."

Another signer, Beijing-based Du Yanlin, was summoned by the police last Saturday and was told the government treated the open letter very seriously as bidding for the Olympics was a “Number One event”. 

Du says he told the police that the reason why he’s boycotting Beijing’s bid is that it’d be desecrating the Olympics if the games are held in a country with such a “terrible human rights record.”

Du is on parole after being detained for more than a month for Tweeting his selfies on which included one of him sticking a middle finger at Mao Zedong’s mausoleum in Tiananmen Square on the 26th anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre. He says he didn’t openly boycott the 2008 Beijing Olympics but this time as an individual’s choice, he has to call out to the international community to boycott Beijng’s Olympic bid. “The human rights conditions in China have worsened in a blatant way since 2008, especially since Xi Jinping took power,” he adds.
“If the IOC insists on letting Beijing host the Olympics, it no doubt is trampling on Olympics itself. If sports ignore human rights, neglect social justice and conscience, that means the Olympics have fallen, sports have fallen. Hosting the Olympics in Beijing is sending a message to the world, human rights are unimportant in front of political interests. Today it can be held in Beijing, tomorrow in Pyongyang.”

Du says even if Beijing's winning the bid is not of his concern, it’s always very significant to boycott Beijing, “Because we’re reminding the international community and Chinese people, the Chinese government is trampling on human rights freely. Some people are speaking of opposition, which means not all are in agreement of negligence of human rights.

The letter is part of a global petition to gain signatures to boycott Beijing’s Winter Olympic bid.  

Foreign Ministry told Reuters that “a few people with ulterior motives are politicizing the Olympic Games.”

U.S.-based activist, Tiananmen survivor Rose Tang who co-wrote the letter, wrote on her Twitter and Facebook in response: “I really enjoy being a member of an overseas enemy force with ‘ulterior motives’. My "ulterior motives" are to get rid of the Chinese Communist party dictatorship, to bring all corrupt officials to justice, and help all people living in China and Chinese occupied countries gain human rights and democracy.”

Re: Reject Beijing’s bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics

Dear Mr. Bach:
The undersigned Chinese nationals and former citizens urge you to reject Beijing’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics as China is now facing a human rights crisis with a scale of violations that is unprecedented since 2008.
As we write this letter, the Chinese government is carrying out an unparalleled attack on civil society. More than 250 Chinese human-rights lawyers, legal assistants, activists and their family members have been arrested, interrogated, put under house arrest and made to disappear since July 9. The youngest is 16 and the oldest 81.
Beijing has been using the Olympic Games to promote the Chinese Communist Party. If the International Olympic Committee awards Beijing the 2022 Winter Olympics, a great event intended to promote solidarity, brotherhood and human development will once again serve a corrupt dictatorship. It will endorse a government that blatantly violates human rights. Awarding Beijing the Olympics is a contradiction of the Olympics’ goal of “promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.”
The 2008 Summer Olympics made a mockery of the fine principles that the Olympics stands for, and brought more humiliation than dignity and more sadness than joy to the people in China.
In the name of the Olympics, Beijing forcibly relocated 1.5 million residents and evicted thousands of households. Hundreds of petitioners—as well as handicapped people—were detained in secret detention centers as part of the government’s effort to “clean up” the capital for the games. To put forth a good face for the Olympics, Beijing covered up a nationwide powdered milk scandal, which seriously affected the health of some 360,000 babies in China by 2008. The government also banned record-holding athlete Fang Zheng from the Paralympics because his legs were crushed by a tank in the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre.  
To win the 2008 Olympics, China promised to allow space for Chinese citizens to protest during the games. Spaces were allocated, but those that applied for permission to hold protests were actually arrested, making a mockery of China’s promises to the IOC. We expect similar abuses to take place should you award Beijing the 2022 Winter Olympics.
We feel utterly ashamed of such a notorious human rights record, which not only contradicts Beijing’s own promises, but also severely tarnishes the reputation and spirit of the Olympic Games.
Beijing promised to improve press freedom in order to win the 2008 Olympics. Instead, the Chinese media have experienced even more censorship and crackdowns. China has been denying work visas to a number of foreign journalists who cover “sensitive” issues. The country is the world’s largest jailer of journalists, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
Allowing Beijing to host the 2022 Winter Olympics would send the world a message that China’s human rights abuses are being endorsed by the IOC, making the 2022 Games look strikingly similar to the 1936 Berlin Olympics and the 1980 Moscow Olympics. 
We believe that the pure Olympic dream should never serve political oppression by a host government. We dream that one day the sacred Olympic flame will cast a light on a free China. For now, under this government, any more Olympic games would go down in history as the Shame Games, and make the IOC an accomplice in the abuse of human rights in the name of the Olympics.
Yours sincerely,

Prominent Chinese Boycott Beijing's Bid to Host the 2022 Winter Olympics


PRESS RELEASE

Prominent Chinese Urge International Olympic Committee to Reject 
Beijing's Bid to Host the 2022 Winter Olympics

July 26, 2015

A group of prominent Chinese lawyers, journalists, scholars, activists, and former Tiananmen student leaders inside and outside China have issued an open letter urging the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to veto Beijings bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics because of serious human rights violations.

By Remon Wang (Rebel Pepper)
The IOC members are due to vote on July 31 in Kuala Lumpur to choose either Beijing or Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan, to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. 

The letter accuses the Chinese government of carrying out an unprecedented attack on civil society. More than 250 Chinese human-rights lawyers, legal assistants, activists and their family members have been arrested, interrogated, put under house arrest or made to disappear since July 9,the letter says.

The letter adds that awarding Beijing the Olympics would contradict the Olympic goal of promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.

It describes how China violated the spirit of the 2008 Olympics, pointing out that the Chinese government relocated 1.5 million residents to make way for sports venues and detained hundred of petitioners and disabled people to clean upthe capital for Olympics. The government also covered up a tainted milk powder scandal that damaged the health of over 360,000 babies in the run-up to the Olympics that year. China also intensified its censorship of the media and rejected work visas for foreign journalists who cover sensitive topics.

We feel utterly ashamed of such a notorious human rights record, which not only contradicts Beijings own promises, but also severely tarnishes the reputation and spirit of the Olympic Games,the letter adds. 

The letter warns the IOC that by choosing Beijing it would make the organizationan accomplice in the abuse of human rights in the name of the Olympics,thereby making the 2022 Winter Olympics theShame Games, and reminiscent of the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The letter is part of a global petition to gain signatures to boycott Beijing’s Winter Olympic bid.

The first signers of the letter include Chinese students in the U.S. and Australia,  dissidents inside China, such as Hu Jia and Du Yanlin, who was summoned by Beijing Domestic Security officers on July 25 for signing the letter. Other signers include prominent human rights lawyers Chen Guangcheng and Teng Biao, renowned economists He Qinglian and Xia Yeliang, political scientists Wu Qiang of Tsinghua University and Xia Ming of the City University of New York. 

In addition, signers also include Tiananmen student leaders Wu’er Kaixi, Zhou Fengsuo and former athlete Fang Zheng, whose legs were crushed by a tank during the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre. Fang, a twice national champion, who now lives in San Francisco, has been banned from participating in sporting events in China since 1994, including the 2008 Paralympics. He says: "So my experience is a typical product when politics is in involved in sports, an example of political persecution in ports events.”

A Chinese Human Rights Lawyer’s Family -- Elements of the New Black Five

A 16-year-old boy and his grandparents, one of them paralyzed, have been under house arrest in Tianjin city in China for more than 10 days.

What have they done? 

Nothing. The only reason is that they’re relatives of human rights lawyer Wang Yu and her activist husband Bao Longjun. 

And they’re being called Elements of the New Black Five. The old Black Five were categories coined in the Cultural Revolution for the bottom class that’s doomed for persecution: landlord, rich peasant, counter-revolutionary, bad element (no specific definition) and Rightist. The term applies to all of their family members and descendants. Millions of them (most were intellectuals) were detained, forced to do hard labor, tortured or killed. They were like the Jews in Nazi Germany.
human rights lawyer Wang Yu

Wang Yu  and Bao Lunjun were the first to be arrested in a sweeping crackdown on human rights lawyers and activists. Since July 9, more than 240 of them and members of their families and staff have been arrested, interrogated or gone missing. It’s an unprecedented crackdown since the Tiananmen Massacre of 1989. Wang and her colleagues at Fengrui Law Firm were branded by Chinese propaganda media as a “major criminal gang.” 

Despite protests in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and statements from the U.S. State Department, the U.N., E.U. and a number of international organizations such as Amnesty International and lawyers' groups around the world condemning the crackdown and calling for the immediate release of the detained, Beijing continues to interrogate and round up lawyers and activists.

The couple’s son Bao Mengmeng and his father were kidnapped by the police on July 9 as they were at the security check of the Beijing Capital Airport. They were going to fly to Kuala Lumpur, then transfer to Australia, where Mengmeng was going to study at a high school. A group of people dashed towards them, covered Mengmeng’s mouth and threw them in two separate vans. On the same night, Wang Yu was taken away from her Beijing home.

Mengmeng was taken to Tianjin and detained for about 40 hours in a hotel room and later a police station. Since then, he has been staying with his grandparents in Tianjin. A handful of family friends were able to see them a few days after Mengmeng’s release. One visitor told New York-based activist Rose Tang: “Mengmeng was very afraid. He really wanted to go to Australia to study. But since they’ve taken away his passport, he won’t be able to (go there to) study.”

Bao Longjun's father bed bound for 3 years
Mengmeng’s grandfather has been bed bound for three years. Both grandmothers, in their 70’s, are sickly and frail. “The grandmothers have to cook and look after the sick grandfather. They’re really struggling with daily life. And they’re going through quite a financial hardship,” the visitor said.

Shortly after the visits, police officers started to be stationed outside their door. According to weiquanwang.com, Mengmeng, his two grandmothers and aunt Bao Haiying have been interrogated by the police, who told them it was “for their good.” 

They were told not to contact lawyers or journalists. The police took away Mengmeng’s passport and keys to his Beijing home and told him that he won’t be allowed to go to Australia or return to his Beijing home. He was also told not to ask about his parents, who are held in undisclosed locations and have been incommunicado. 

Wang Yu's activist husband Bao Longjun
New York-based Human Rights Watch said on July 21 that Wang and a dozen more lawyers and activists who are detained in secret locations are “vulnerable to torture and other abuses.” Wang was jailed for two and a half years before, both she and her husband Bao have been assaulted numerous times by court officers and the police. Bao has been working with petitioners and grass roots rights protection activists. 

Family friends say Mengmeng is a shy and reserved teenager. His house arrest has sparked a public outcry. New York-based Chinese activist Wen Yunchao Tweeted: “This is the Second Generation of the Red (Communist cadres’ children) persecuting the New  Black Five.”

Ai Xiaoming, renowned Chinese scholar and independent documentary maker who lives in China had these words published: “Kid, don’t you be afraid. Your big aunt was a member of the Black Five. Your world is bound to be vast. Many people are caring about you. You just study at home first and prepare for going overseas, compete against them to see who live longer. You’re destined to succeed!”
Words on placrad on Xi Jinping's father Xi Zhongxun: "Anti-Party Element"

Rose Tang, a Tiananmen Massacre survivor, Tweeted old photos of Chinese President Xi Jinping ‘s father Xi Zhongxun being persecuted at a struggle meeting and a young Xi Jinping during the Cultural Revoluion, along with photos of Wang Yu, Bao Mengmeng and his grandmothers. She wrote: “Xitler! You’ve forgotten how your old dad was persecuted in those years and when you were an element of the Black Five? Now you’re spreading the persecution to relatives and associates...The Old Black Five (the New Second Red Generation) are persecuting the New Black Five! The day when the people take revenge on you and your cronies is not far!” 

Tang’s parents and grandparents were persecuted in the Cultural Revolution. All were branded “Elements of the Black Five”.

San Francisco-based NGO Humanitarian China, co-founded by Tianamen Massacre survivor and student leader Zhou Fengsuohas set up a special fund to support the human rights lawyers/activists and their families. Please donate to them: http://h-china.org/2015_rights_lawyers/

More than 2,500 people have signed a petition calling for the White House to cancel Xi's state visit to the U.S. scheduled for the U.S., and there's been a worldwide boycott on Beijing's bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
