[Voice of Hope December 2, 2021](Comprehensive report by our reporter Ting Fang)On December 1st, the International Women’s Tennis Association WTA announced the immediate suspension of all competitions in China and Hong Kong. On the 2nd, world tennis stars, human rights organizations and other groups praised WTA’s support for Peng Shuai’s decision. At the same time, people from all walks of life accused the International Olympic Committee of violating the Olympic spirit and becoming the CCP’s “conspiracy.”

Agence France-Presse reported that Billie King, who has 12 Grand Slam singles champions, said that the WTA “is on the right side of history.” France’s Aliz-Kone praised WTA Chief Executive Simon (Steve Simon) on Twitter, saying: “Is a real leader.” Novak, the world‘s number one tennis player, said: “I fully support the WTA’s position.” The second ranked Martina praised WTA’s “brave stand” and put principles before the dollar.” She also accused the International Olympic Committee (IOC): “I can hardly hear your voice.”

The commentator Lan Shu believes (Recording 1): This is a strong will and signal that human rights are more important than commercial interests, and personal safety is more important than making money. Professional tennis is a career with high bonuses. Then these tennis balls The celebrities’ expressions show that I would rather not make the money. I have to figure out whether Peng Shuai’s personal safety is guaranteed. Whether this matter can get the ultimate judicial justice.

WTA’s move may cost millions of euros, but Simon said in a statement: “I hope that world leaders will continue to come forward to ensure justice for Peng and all women, regardless of economic consequences.” Some Chinese netizens After learning the news, he made a comment on WTA’s official Weibo, expressing his admiration for the WTA chairman and saying that he has the courage.

The outside world‘s criticism of the International Olympic Committee and the boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics have become increasingly vigorous. Lan Shu said (Recording 2): What the International Olympic Committee chose to do was simply to make a video call with Peng Shuai. It was completely perfunctory and did not really consider Peng Shuai’s safety at all. Go in. Who knows if her personal safety has been threatened? Has the personal safety of her family been threatened? The International Olympic Committee has been completely focused on commercial interests and sacrificed the most basic Olympic humanity. This matter of the International Olympic Committee can be said to have committed public outrage. , Very very disappointing.

Sports research scholar Sun Youkui told VOA that human rights are universal ethics. In recent years, the International Olympic Committee has always turned a blind eye to human rights in China. Before the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Tibet issue triggered strong opposition and people hope that the international community will value China. Human rights situation. At that time, the IOC said that letting China host the Olympics hoped to have a positive impact on Chinese society, promote human rights, and lead to positive improvements. However, China’s human rights issues have become more numerous, and Xinjiang and Hong Kong have also been added. “
