Goodmorning Tibet


Just today I stopped by the Olympic Pedestrian Bridge because I saw these Tibet Demonstrators under pouring rain. From Torino Olympic Motto: Passion Lives Here (see yesterday) they changed it in Repression Lives Here over 5 bloodstained olympics rings...

Giusto oggi mi son fermato presso la passerella Olimpica perché ho visto questi dimostranti a favore del Tibet sotto una pioggia a dirotto. Il motto Olimpico di Torino "La Passione vive qui" (cfr. ieri) è stato cambiato in "La repressione vive qui" sopra i cinque cerchi intrisi di sangue...

Torino DP is Pro Tibet

Your post speaks volumes about the sentiment regarding the summer Olympics in China. Good selection!

I always cheer for the little guy so I have to cheer for Tibet. Chine is getting too powerful for my taste and I sometimes wish China was still isolated from the rest of the world.

Hi Fabrizio. The Olympic torch arrives here next week. Of course there will be demonstrations. Worringly, the Chinese embassy is helping mobilise many of the thousands of Chinese students here in support.

Our new Prime Minister speaks Mandarin fluently, and recently was in Beijing. He addressed an audience sayign in no uncertain terms that China has to attend to human rights.

Oh, and I voted in the Italian elections. Turns out the will of the people didn;t match mine this time ;-)

A nice piece of journalism, Fabrizio.
I have a friend in China & we find it best not to bring the subject of the Olympics up :-)
