支持北京奥运 缔造世界和谐 “全球支持2008北京奥运会签名活动”倡议书
Support the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and Strive to Create a Harmonious World
The 2008 Beijing Olympic Games are only about a hundred and thirty days away. Residents of our Global Village will send their best athletes to compete and relate with each other in equality, regardless of their nationalities, skin colors, beliefs and cultures.
The Olympic Games, which are more than major sports events for athletes of the world, have become a symbol of world peace and friendship. To welcome this upcoming extravaganza, the Chinese International Media Association is pleased to launch this global campaign and to ask all who support the Olympic Games to sign your name in support of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
The highlights of the Olympics spirit include tolerance and understanding of the diversity of cultures. The Olympics are able to gather all nations of the world to mingle in one particular space and timeframe, where all peoples can identify themselves. The Olympics help to eliminate cultural prejudices and bias. The diversity of cultures, instead of appearing in conflict and contradiction, paints a picture of kaleidoscopic cultural landscapes.
It has become the impetus for people to communicate and engage in exchanges in the spirit of Global Citizenship, encouraged to learn about and understand the world beyond their own and to enrich themselves. The growing integration of the world and the advancement of information exchange have shortened the time and space between human societies. Mutual contact and communication have become more frequent. Striving for a win-win situation through exchange is a means rather than a goal. Contributions to mutual understanding and to a peaceful and more beautiful world are not only long-term goals of the Olympics, they are also human needs.
The Olympic Games are the most favorable platform to create an international environment for “unity, friendship, progress and harmony”. It is also the best arena for athletes of the world to compete fairly and make their Olympic dreams come true. It is our hope that the Olympics will help to eliminate international disputes and promote world peace. The Olympics should be able to proceed as usual without interference by other conflicts or frictions.
We call for the peoples of the world to carry on the spirit of the Olympics, respect the hard work of the athletes and lend their support for a peaceful and friendly Olympics. We also earnestly hope that all athletes, the Organizing Committee and governments will oppose any form of boycott to the Olympics.
Let us welcome the Olympics, strengthen our communication between each other, and make our due contribution to the peaceful development of human society.
Kindly sign your name in support of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games!
