A leak of Chinese secrets is "a smoking gun" and prompts our demand to move the Olympics

May, 2002

Dear American,

For myself and for the China Support Network, let me introduce you to our amazing, urgent, and outrageous situation, which we suddenly face.

We are suddenly campaigning for China to lose its host status for the 2008 Olympic games. These were scheduled to go to Beijing, and there is a new "smoking gun" outrage which is so large, it requires, calls for, and demands removing the Olympic name off of this Chinese abuse.

A Chinese crackdown on human rights is always revolting -- but now, the Communists went too far and crossed a line, in naming the Olympics as the pretext and reason for a crackdown -- in top secret Chinese government orders, with the Olympics' name on them. The orders came to light this month. Now, there is a crackdown campaign to abuse Chinese human rights, in the name of the Olympics.

The Chinese Communists should not be using the Olympic name as an excuse for their vile practices of gross, flagrant violation of people. It is an absolute misuse and debasement of the meaning of the Olympics.

Chinese people, such as practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual movement, should not suffer more because of the Olympics. There should be no extra death, torture, or incarceration because of the Olympics!

The more you read about this, the more offensive it gets. I have written the article, "Olympic Misbehavior From China," about this matter, and it is inserted at the end of this letter.

Can we remove the Olympics from China, and do the right thing? This is an achievable objective, and we are appealing for your help.

Hosting the Olympics is a privilege, not a right. Also, it is important to protect the "brand name" of the Olympics. Any marketing manager would say, "get our brand name off of that torture and tyranny." We believe, the International Olympic Committee can be brought to see matters the same way.

The alternative brings us to a new question about human rights statistics
