Statement at FSC main gate
Increased international trade and investment in China has provided the Communist regime with the resources to escalate its massive population transfer of Chinese people to Tibet. It has also allowed the regime to expand its all-pervasive apparatus of control in Tibet and, further, to maintain and re-equip its vast army of occupation. In fact, Secret Police omniscience, mutual-surveillance, informing and repression in Tibet has now returned to a Maoist climate where school children are exhorted to inform on their parents.
Religious repression is as ferocious as ever, with the arrests and detention of many prominent lamas. Every monastery in Tibet now has military re-education teams that hold daily compulsory classes on atheism and on "opposing the Dalai clique's splittist activities" and "loving the motherland." Official efforts to undermine Tibetan language, culture, beliefs and way of life is so widespread, systematic and unrelenting as to fully justify the Dalai Lama's accusations of "cultural genocide".
WORLD'S #1 HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSER
In China itself, even a partial review reveals the Communist regime to be the world's number one human rights violator, with such major abuses as: commercial harvesting of transplant organs of executed prisoners; wholesale and indiscriminate application of the death penalty; sweeping and brutal repression of all religions; forced abortions and compulsory sterilization; denial of basic labour rights to Chinese workers and farmers; criminal psychiatric abuse of political prisoners; routine torture of prisoners; draconian repression in East Turkestan, maintenance of the world's largest system of forced labour camps, and so on.
WHAT WE MUST DO
All these crimes against humanity should be sufficient reason for any morally conscious person to act. We believe we must seek a course of action that is not merely symbolic or supplicatory but strikes at the heart of the problem in a direct, non-violent way. Hence we, the undersigned, pledge not to buy any products manufactured in the People's Republic of China and to join and actively participate in the BOYCOTT Made In China campaign.
