Mood turns ugly in Beijing - World Blog - msnbc.com
IMHO, Bob Griswold, Walla Walla, Washington, says it all, "Is any of this a surprise? Remember Tienanmen Square? Remember the rape of Tibet and the ongoing brutal occupation of that peaceful country? Just because greedy business people in Western countries may make money by dealing with China, doesn't change the reality that China is a brutal dictatorship that deserves the privilege of hosting the Olympics about as much as Myanmar and North Korea would."
I have been protesting ALL THINGS CHINESE buy NOT buying anything made in China, and am now also NOT buying products made by the sponsors of the 2008 Olympics.
U.S. sponsors are:
Johnson & Johnson
United Parcel Service
Most of these 2008 Olympic sponsors have products that I can easily find a substitute for; my only voice in this is my dollar. So I'm doing my best NOT to support the Chinese government until Tibet is free. At this point, just saying that the violence has to stop is ridiculous. China must give up Tibet.
