Doomed to fail: China on calls for Beijing 2022 Olympic boycott

Mar 04, 2021 12:30 IST | By AP

Chinese government spokesperson Guo Weimi said Wednesday that Calls for a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics on human rights grounds are 'doomed to fail.'

A small but vocal core of international lawyers, politicians and activists have brought pressure on Olympic sponsors, sports federations, governments and athletes to shun what they are branding as the "Genocide Games" because of reported human rights abuses against Muslim minorities in China.

Canada's House of Commons voted 266-0 in a nonbinding referendum that China is committing genocide against more than 1 million Uyghurs and called for the IOC to move the Olympics from Beijing.
