Picture of the day… August 8, 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

In this morning's Picture of the Day Tibetan exiles participate in a protest against the Beijing Olympic Games in New Delhi, India.

You cannot see anything (except the incredible air pollution) at the Beijing Olympic Games.

You cannot speak your mind openly, especially about Tibet.

Human rights? What human rights?

I cannot fathom, for the life of me, why the Olympic Committee allowed China to host the Olympics on that basis. I cannot see why the Olympic Games in Beijing are being allowed to proceed.

Can you?
