Help expose the Olympic Rings of Oppression

History has shown us hosting an Olympics Games is no deterrent to abusive governments which have policies that are starkly at odds with the Olympic spirit. 

China’s contempt for human rights should not be rewarded or affirmed with the honour of hosting an Olympics Games.

The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will take place against a backdrop of China's Uyghur genocide, the brutal occupation in Tibet, and the severe and escalating crackdown on rights and freedoms in Hong Kong and across China.

International Olympic Committee Member, Juan Antonio Samaranch, is responsible for ensuring China is fully prepared for the Beijing 2022 Winter Games and recently, despite all evidence to the contrary, issued a statement praising China as an example to us all.

Tibetan, Uyghur, Southern Mongolian, Hong Kong, Taiwanese, Chinese Democracy, and human rights campaign groups will not remain silent. We demand the IOC cancel or move the Games.

TAKE ACTION: Send a message to Juan Antonio Samaranch urging him and the IOC to immediately move or cancel Beijing 2022 or risk irreversible damage to the IOC’s reputation.



A coalition of groups in Dharamsala, India held a press conference and staged a ‘bloody street theatre’ to raise awareness of China's human rights abuses, one year out from the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022.
