Prime Minister of UK Urged To Boycott 2008 China Olympics

Posted by Author on August 10, 2007

Press Association, Via The Guardian, UK, August 9, 2007-

Gordon Brown has been urged to start a Europe-wide debate on whether athletes should boycott the Beijing Olympics in response to human rights abuses.

Senior Tory MEP Edward McMillan-Scott claimed there was evidence of “persecution and genocide” in China and said EU countries should consider pulling out of the Games.

Mr McMillan-Scott, MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber and a vice-president of the European Parliament, raised the issue of a human rights boycott following a visit to China in 2006.

He said: “There is continuing evidence of persecution, and even genocide, in China.

“The civilised world must seriously consider shunning China – and using the Beijing Olympics to send the clear message that such abuses of human rights are not acceptable.

“The debate must take place – whether the countries of the European Union are present at the Beijing Olympics or whether they stay away.”

Mr McMillan-Scott added: “I believe that everyone has the right to practise a religion of their choice without persecution, imprisonment or torture.

“Christians, Buddhists – especially in Tibet – and Muslims are all persecuted.

“Human rights should be endorsed by the Olympic movement, and it is time for the European Union to enter the debate.”

Mr McMillan-Scott is to deliver a letter to Mr Brown calling for him to initiate a debate among European leaders.

    Sadly we do have to boycott the Olympic games. We failed the athletes by letting China get the 08 bid. How did this happen?

    I do know we can live without things made in China.
    No more made in China!

    Yes I agree that the Olympic should be boycott to teach china a lesson that Human rights and animal rights are a part of a Civilized world. Their beliefs are antiquated and needs to be pulled into the 21st century. We are a different people now and we need to let the entire world know that communism is obsolete and is not a working governmental system anymore. A Government who don’t respect it’s own people does not need the support of the whole world. We need to send out a clear message to all countries who are violating human and animal rights. Why can’t we all work together to make this world a better place? Why does every country want to be better than the next? We all live in the planet together, we are the same people. We are Earthling. Why can’t we see the bigger picture? Why is everyone so blind?
