china's olympic legacy - am i buggin' ya???

"am i buggin' ya? i don't mean to bug ya..."
bono from silver and gold on rattle and hum

when china made its bid for the 2008 olympics, authorities promised improvements in human rights...the countdown to the beijing olympics has begun, and the chinese authorities must make good on their promises and uphold the legacy of the games...with the recent crackdown on peaceful dissent in tibet, the rounding up and jailing of prominent human rights activists, and increased censorship of the media, china's human rights violations have only increased in the months leading up to the games...

peace out <3
