To the editor:
Chinese Communists Party (CCP) has developed massive detention centers for Uyghur and Turkish Muslim population where forced labor, rape, sterilization, starvation, torture and mutualization occurs. Human organs are harvested and eugenics is practiced to decrease the minority and physically impaired population.
CCP demands political loyalty and silences human rights defenders. They’re the arbiter of spiritual life and assaulted many freedoms Hong Kong’ers inherited from England. Anyone critical of President Xi is imprisoned and fair trials are a myth. All pro-democracy outlets, books and assemblies are assaulted and/or eliminated.
The CCP monitors people movement and behavior resulting in rewards or punishment. A coalition of 180 human rights groups are urging boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics so as not to whitewash China’s inhumane behavior and suppressed culture.
Congressman Michael Waltz (R, Fl) is also urging the Olympic boycott. As the world leader for freedoms of speech, assembly and human rights, the U.S has a moral obligation to highlight these atrocities not reward them with the games. Write your Congressional delegation supporting Waltz and urge condemnation of Biden for accepting China’s cruel norms.
