A coalition of rights groups, Tibetan, Uyghur and Hongkonger communities are coming together on the Human Rights Day to remind the Chinese regime that all is not well in China and its occupied territories. They are calling on the UK Government to boycott the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games.
The Chinese Communist Party has been given the privilege of hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics – with Beijing becoming the first city in sports history to host both the summer and winter games.
For over 70 years, the CCP has instigated crackdowns on freedom, democracy, and human rights; targeting those who speak out against the regime, and who do not conform to a state-enforced ‘Chinese’ identity.
Protesters are first meeting at Piccadilly Circus (Piazza) at 6pm. After a short rally at the Piazza, the protesters will march to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) in White Hall via Haymarket, Trafalgar Square and White Hall. The protest will end at 8pm after speeches in White Hall.
All are welcome to join this peaceful protest. China’s Wuhan Virus is still causing danger to the lives of people around the world. With this latest Omicron variant, organisers are advising the participants to follow the government guidelines/rules during the rally.
