'..a boycott on the Beijing 2022 Winter Games..'

Posted by archive 
'A growing number of Western parliaments are denouncing China's actions in Xinjiang as genocide, further isolating Beijing diplomatically and raising the likelihood of a partial political boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics.

On Tuesday, the Belgian Parliament's Foreign Relations Committee passed a non-binding motion saying Uyghurs were at "serious risk" of genocide as a result of the Chinese government's actions in the far western region of the country. A vote on the resolution is expected in the legislature on July 1.

"Our small country is great, because we dare to save a little humanity," said Samuel Cogolati, a Belgian member of parliament, on his official Twitter.

Belgian lawmakers are the latest Western parliamentarians to debate a motion condemning Beijing's actions in Xinjiang, where human rights experts claim up to 1 million Uyghurs have been detained in a vast system of re-education camps.

On July 10, the Czech Republic's Senate declared the Chinese government was committing genocide in Xinjiang. On May 20, the parliament of Lithuania passed a similar non-binding resolution.

In total, five Western parliaments have now passed official non-binding motions using the word genocide in connection with China's Xinjiang policies, including the United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands, with Belgium likely to follow. The United States government in January officially designated China's human rights abuses in Xinjiang as genocide.

But the greatest blow might still be yet to come for the Chinese government. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on June 7 he was consulting with America's allies on a "shared approach" to a boycott on the Beijing 2022 Winter Games, in keeping with Biden's push for a united front on action against China.

And pressure for a diplomatic boycott is growing. The Czech Senate endorsed the idea in its declaration of genocide in Xinjiang last week. The US Innovation and Competition Act, which passed the Senate on June 8, included a clause that would make it "the policy of the US" to engage in a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing 2022 Olympics.'
