  1. That’s exactly where things are going. And the next step will be athletes knowing they will lose sponsorship contracts if they go.
  2. https://www.rfa.org/english/news/uyghur/genocide-declarations-06152021171101.html More global calls for diplomatic or full boycotts,
  3. Well NBC do have a low of power - if they and all other American broadcasters refused to show any coverage of the games in Bejing and were followed by the broadcasters in Canada, Uk, France, Germany and Japan the games would struggle to be viable.
  4. A new poll shows the majority of British People believe Covid leaked from a Chinese Lab. This shows that the campaign for a boycott would have widespread public support in the UK
  5. NBC might well be the biggest pusher - if they get scared of adverts ing boycotts during the games they will push to void their contract which I bet has an American boycott clause. The Chief Rabbi of the Uk has come out for a boycott which is a big deal. https://www.politicshome.com/thehouse/article/britain-must-send-a-strong-message-to-china-and-join-a-diplomatic-boycott-of-2022-beijing-winter-olympics https://www.theepochtimes.com/legislators-in-ten-countries-push-for-beijing-2022-winter-olympics-boycott_3849936.html
  6. https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/politics/article/3135311/former-hong-kong-lawmaker-baggio-leung-vows-campaign More pressure.
  7. If Joe Biden and Boris Johnson stand there and say Covid came from a lab leak do you really think the people of the USA and UK will tolerate athletes going there. No they won’t.

  9. It feels more and more likely it will end up with the USPOD being threatened with a Goverment takeover if it does not boycott.
  10. The legislation being introduced Friday directs the heads of executive agencies and the defense secretary not to enter into contracts with companies or people who have “business operations with the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games or the International Olympic Committee.” It wouldn’t apply to contracts the secretaries of State or Defense determine to be in the interest of national security. The ban would be lifted if companies withdraw their support from the Games, which are scheduled to begin Feb. 4. “This section shall not apply with resp
  11. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/lawmakers-propose-ban-on-firms-backing-beijing-games/ar-AAKs9CK?li=BBnbcA1 The proposal goes much further than what Republican and Democratic leaders in the House have proposed, but it is a sign of the broad bipartisan frustration in Congress over China’s behavior on a range of issues from human rights in the Xinjiang region to transparency over the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Hitting their bottom lines seems to be the only thing that will ultimately get their attention,” said Republican Representative Mike Waltz from Florida, who
  12. A ban on US citizens going to China would be something they could do but the likelihood is USOPC would fold and agree to boycott under the resulting pressure.
  13. I feel that if the report on origins of Covid-19 just ordered comes back as a leak - deliberate or accidental then a boycott becomes much more likely.
  14. Smith later said "a so-called diplomatic boycott is weak and in no way penalizes Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for the heinous crime of genocide."
