Olympics 'worsening China rights'


*According to Amnesty International, China is clamping down on dissent in a bid to portray a stable and harmonious image ahead of the Games in August.

“Unless the Chinese authorities take steps to redress the situation urgently, a positive human rights legacy for the Beijing Olympics looks increasingly beyond reach,” it said.

“It is increasingly clear that much of the current wave of repression is occurring not in spite of the Olympics but actually because of the Olympics.” *

All those sponsoring the Olympics must be dealt with. This includes the sponsors, broadcasters, and advertisers. This means not supporting any of those groups. Hit them where it hurts, in their money grubbing bottom line.

As for the IOC and the Olympics, their time has come and gone. Time to bury these carcasses.
