China repression

Times Colonist: Published: Friday, January 11, 2008

The International Olympic Committee is not the only one worried about Beijing's ability to host the Olympics. Go ask the Falun Gong, Christians, Uyghurs and Tibetans to see what they have to say about years of languishing in jail for their beliefs. Freedom fighters and reporters are in the same boat.

The IOC should make sure that Beijing stops using the Olympics as a tool of repression ahead of the Games.
