Wednesday evening, roughly 10,000 nationalistically devoted Chinese citizens gathered in Tiananmen Square to celebrate the one-year countdown to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Celebrations included detaining journalists, shutting down Web sites, and running over protesting students with tanks.
Some of the outside events from the 2008 games will likely be postponed or relocated to other areas because of air pollution. Meanwhile, the government still arrests people who proclaim Tibetan Independence, executes political prisoners, and says fuck you to human rights. Sweet.
Here’s a fun game: Look at anything you have that’s plastic – does it say “Made In China” on it? How about your shoes? YOU WIN!
The Olympics were started in Greece. So was the concept of democracy. Fuck China’s government in the face.
