Beijing Olympics 2008

Paris Olympic torch relay protest

  • Tiananmen Square
  • Tibet
  • One child policy
  • Capital punishment
  • Organ harvesting
  • Censorship
  • Persecution of ethnic and religious minorities

Why the fuck did the IOC award the Olympics to China in the first place?

And what the hell did they expect?

    They probably expected (and probably got) a nice lump of cash from the Chinese…

    Of course the Chinese media have reported the demonstrations rather differently!

    I feel sorry for the athletes who’ve devoted their lives to sporting excellence which is now somewhat over-shadowed. However, I do think that demonstrations are totally appropriate if reasonably conducted – trying to steal the torch is a bit too far though.

    However, the Chinese regime has never cared a fuck what anyone else thinks. Personally, I try to avoid purchasing all Chinese products.

    It will be a very brave athlete indeed who wears a ‘Free Tibet’ T-shirt on the winner’s podium.
