Two recent pieces of news about the Olympic Games caught my attention. One was a report from an official in the Public Security Bureau revealing that the Ministry of the Public Security Bureau issued a confidential bulletin entitled "Notice on Making Strict Investigations of Applicants for the Olympic Games and Test Matches" to the public security bureaus at the provincial, autonomous regions and municipalities's levels. The bulletin indicated that the Chinese Communist Regime intends to make strict investigations on the background of 43 types of people in 11 categories and forbid them from taking part in the Olympic Games.
The other report was about 6,000 farmers from Fujin City, Heilongjiang Province, who previously lost their land and publicly signed an online statement which stated that they "...don't want the Olympics but want human rights instead." The farmers said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is extremely corrupt and ordinary people are unable to make a living, so what use are the Olympic Gold Medals?
CCP Politicises the Olympic Games
On May 18th, the Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister, Yang Jiehu, claimed, "A handful of people are trying to politicise the Olympic Games." In response to this, the former Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) for Canada David Kilgour said, "The games have been politicised by the government of China. I think some of you are aware of the bulletin that went out saying who would be allowed to go to China to see the games, how they'd be treated, and who would not be allowed. That bulletin is now a public document which is on a number of websites. It is contrary to the Olympic spirit."
Also regarding Yang Jiehu's comment, MP Wrzesnewskyj said, "Its an absolutely ridiculous comment and even if we set aside the fact that tens of thousands of people in countries around the world have taken interest, even if we set aside the fact that Mr. Kilgour and Mr. Matas have travelled and met with parliamentarians, politicians, leaders of organisations and of countries in over 20 countries--even if we set aside those particular numbers, a handful of people? Oh my goodness, how many thousands are imprisoned in China and how many thousands have lost their lives due to this policy of organ harvesting of Falun Gong members?"
The CCP categorises people into classes and types according to what they like or don't like. Everybody, whether Chinese or Western, has to pass a political background check in order to watch the Olympic Games. This way they can exclude thousands upon thousands of people. In so doing, the CCP tarnishes the spirit of the Olympic Game and shows that the CCP is very afraid of dissidents. To put it clearly, the CCP is afraid that the fact that they trample human rights will be exposed.
MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj said, "The organ harvesting will be an incredible dark stain on the Chinese republic and it will be in the history books. They can't cover this up. It will be written up. It would be much preferred that the history books note that the government put a stop to this death industry as opposed to allowing it to continue and to cover up."
The Spirit of the Olympic Games Is to Respect the Dignity of Human Beings While the CCP Tramples the Dignity of Human Beings
For the 2008 Olympic Games, the CCP on one hand advocates the spirit of the Olympic Games, while at the same time commits such evils as harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. How could these ridiculous things be allowed to happen in the history of human civilisation?
The CCP Is Nervous about the Olympics while the People Are Concerned About Human Rights
The reason the CCP is so nervous about the Olympic Games is that they want to maintain the feeble existence of their evil field. But this evil field has become so weak that it is just about to break. It can't even tolerate having dissidents watch the Games. What are ordinary Chinese people concerned about? Their basic human rights and living environment are not protected, so what else is there to be concerned about?
Recently Tai Lake, the third largest freshwater lake in China, has been severely polluted by growing and spreading green algae. Faucets are bringing foul and smelly water into households and the water is undrinkable. Bottled mineral water in supermarkets is quickly snapped up and the prices are soaring. The Wuxi area is in a water-crisis. Many people have had to flee their hometowns.
In Fujin City, Heilongjiang Province, 6,000 farmers signed an online petition using their real names, and demanded basic human rights, not the Olympic Games. They have tried their best to reclaim the land they lost 11 years ago, but failed. They have no other choice but to stand up and protest.
Recently a string of incidents occurred in China. In Bobai City, Guangxi Province, people went to the streets to protest the one-child policy on a large scale and they burned government buildings. On Hualou Street in Wuhan City more than 300 people gathered to hold a public meeting about protecting their rights and strongly condemned the violent demolition of their homes. There were several other incidents of peasants ransacking corrupt local officials' homes and detaining them. These are the new methods people use to protect their rights.
The CCP promised to improve human rights if they were granted the right to hold the Olympic Games, but from the current situation we can see that human rights in China have not improved at all, but rather they continue to deteriorate. History will show that only the demise of the CCP can provide the Chinese people a way out.
