It could come to a boycott


Political boycott of Olympic Games

Human Rights Watch has asked the international community to boycott the Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing this summer due to ongoing violence in Tibet.  In 1959, the Chinese governnment took over Tibet in a bloody military occupation.  It will be interesting to see what the Government of Canada’s response will be to this big event.
