Beijing Boycott Coalition
European Life Network has joined the Beijing Boycott Coalition. As members of the coalition, we are dedicated to speaking out against the hosting of the Olympic Games in a country with one of the worst human rights records in the world.
As I stated in a recent post, millions of women are being abused and millions of babies are being killed on a daily basis in China in the name of the one-child policy whilst the world turns a blind eye and a UN agency co-operates with this crime against humanity. Those brave activists who dare to criticise the Chinese government on this and other human rights' issues, face imprisonment, torture and even death. I therefore urge all organisations with an interest in upholding human rights to join the coalition as a show of solidarity with the people of China. Together we must break the silence.
