Tibetan Violence and the Beijing Olympics March 19, 2008Posted by Philip Ryan in Dalai Lama, News, Tibet.
Lots to talk about with Tibet.
China’s news agency says more than 100 protesters have surrendered. And there are no changes to their plan to run the torch down Everest and across Tibet to Beijing. The unrest won’t affect the Olympics at all, officials say.
The outside world continues to stir. Protests continue in Nepal. Reporters Without Borders calls for a boycott of the Olympics. A Taiwanese candidate lights a “Free Tibet” torch. They’re still marching in Chicago. And the Pope speaks out against the violence in Tibet.
