Do the Right Thing

And we want to be a part of this... because..?
-- BEIJING -- China has ignored calls for dialogue, accusing the Dalai Lama's supporters of organizing violence in Tibet in hopes of sabotaging this summer's Beijing Olympics and promoting Tibetan independence.

“The streets are now filled with police officers. Our hotel is booked out with tourists, but no one feels safe enough to set foot outside,” said the woman, who refused to give her name or that of her hotel for fear of retaliation by authorities.

A police officer in the nearby town of Maqu refused to answer questions about the situation.

“We cannot tell you that information,” he said before banging the phone down.
Boycott the Olympics... that'll get their attention.
