Another Free Tibet Protest

Activists managed to display a "Free Tibet" banner for an hour at the new headquarters of China Central Television on Friday before they were taken away.

Students for a Free Tibet said five Americans were detained in the latest protest by the group, which has managed to get around the massive security forces that China has deployed for the games.

I suspect that the entire purpose of this blog is to humiliate China and the Chinese people for holding the Olympics. Congratulations, Americans and the British! You have done the job!

The police was too lenient toward these hoodlums who are supported by western media. The ordinary Beijing residents wanted to get tough on them and the media guys. Remember the other day a British ITN reporter John Ray who complained he was roughened up by the police? Actually, he was just being kicked around by the spectators at the time the police came to rescue him. (Of course he is not talking about it any more now the facts are known.)

A more effective way to deal with these hooligans is to fine them a significant amount of money and then let them go free to do it again and get fined again.

We'll be protesting 2012 London Games. How can an active aggressor like UK, who occupies two counintries - Iraq and Afganistan - host an Olympics games? UK is an old colonist who committed more war crimes than Germany but never apologized for them. They can't get away with that. Fair minded people wanting to take part in these activities please get ready for action.

I found Ariana Eunjung Cha is really a political reporter sent to China.
