On Sept. 19, 2019, in Strasbourg, France, the European Parliament passed a resolution condemning the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century, including Nazism and communism, and stressing the importance of European memory for the victims. However, it kept silent about the Chinese communist regime.
The same resolution establishes Aug. 23 as the European Day of Remembrance for the victims of totalitarian regimes and that the International Day of the Heroes of the Fight against Totalitarianism will be celebrated on May 25, according to Demokracija.
The emphasis is on not forgetting the crimes committed in the past, but there is absolutely no mention of the ravages that communism caused and continues to cause today in countries such as China.
Although the European Union referred to Nazism and communism by condemning the horrors they caused, it kept silent about this cruel totalitarian form of domination that still reigns over several nations and is far from having disappeared.
The same crimes reported by the European Parliament as mass murder, genocide, and deportations that caused loss of life and freedom in the 20th century continue to be committed in China on a scale never seen in the history of mankind.
The same symbols that are now unacceptable to the European Union, such as the communist hammer and sickle, are the same ones that the communist regime is proud to display, while crushing human rights and religious freedom.
Since Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward, which was probably the largest episode of mass murder in the history of the world, atrocities have not ceased in the world’s most populated country, with 1.38 billion people. It is estimated that the deaths caused by this political system could amount to 100 million.
Although some governments have renounced the persecutions carried out by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), such as the persecution carried out against the Falun Dafa discipline, based on the universal principles of Truth, Benevolence and Tolerance or against the Uighurs, these are far from putting an end to such atrocities.
