Ten Reasons Why the Free World with The 
Leadership of America Must Boycott the 2008 
Olympic Games in Communist China
By Demetrius Klitou

1) Human rights are practically non-existent in Communist China 
Religious persecution, imprisonment and murder of non-violent political 
dissidents, torture, 
organ harvesting and sentences to hard labour are widespread. 

2) The lack of freedom of the press and safety risks for foreign reporters 
Many foreign websites are banned from being visited within China, foreign 
reporters are 
prohibited from interviewing anyone without previous permission from the 
government, and 
the content of all broadcasting is severely restricted. Foreign news media 
reporters have 
been arrested and sentenced to prison under vague and wide-reaching security 

3) The 1980 Olympic Games in Communist Russia were boycotted by 64 states, 
under the leadership of the U.S. 
Beijing is not any different from Moscow in 1980, which was also the capital of 
Communist police state. 

4) Communist China constantly threatens to attack Taiwan
China's government passed a law that explicitly calls for military intervention 
in response to 
any intention by the democratic government of Taiwan to declare independence. 
manoeuvres indicate that the Communists' military is preparing to enforce this 

5) Beijing has the most polluted air in the world 
Studies and satellites photos have proven that Beijing suffers from extremely 
high nitrogen 
dioxide levels, vitally dangerous to the health of the athletes.

6) China is plagued by widespread social, political, and economic unrest 
A surge in huge land grabs and forced evictions by the Chinese government for 
reasons of 
economic expansion and Olympic Games preparations have sparked thousands of 
The government has murdered hundreds of protesters.

7) The Chinese have been bribing and threatening large numbers of members of 
International Olympic Committee
A number of U.S. Representatives, for example, Congressman Tom Lantos, have 
stated this 
on national television.

8) A boycott has some potential to serve as a strategy to encourage human 
rights in 
Only the greedy and foolish global elite think this is true the other way 

9) Holding the Olympic Games in Communist China contradicts the Olympic 
The Olympic Charter defines the philosophy of Olympism as the "respect for 
fundamental ethical principles" and its goal of promoting "a peaceful society 
concerned with 
the preservation of human dignity." 

10) Don't repeat the errors of 1936 when Nazi Germany was allowed to host the 
Olympic Games 
The Olympic Games will give Communist China the same propaganda tool Nazi 
enjoyed. Not since 1936 have the ideals of Olympics been so trampled upon.
