July 29 , 2015
Chinese activists have urged the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to reject Beijing’s 2022 Winter Games bid, saying there had been a steady deterioration in the human rights situation in the country.
IOC members will meet on Friday in Kuala Lumpur to decide via secret ballot whether Almaty, Kazakhstan or Beijing, China will host the event.
If Beijing wins, it will become the first city to play host to both the summer and winter games.
