Brutal Dictatorship To Start Olympics In 24 Days

The brutal dictatorship of China will begin the Summer Olympic games in 24 days on August 8.

Not one of the more than one billion people who live in China has political freedom.

Here is Human Rights Watch about the ongoing brutality of the Chinese government in the context of the Olympics.

The Olympic games were also held in Nazi Berlin in 1936 and Communist Moscow in 1980.

  1. China promised that bringing the Olympics to Beijing would improve human rights – it’s time to deliver.

    Human rights are not political. They’re the basis for all human life – from the right to life and shelter to the right to the freedom of expression and religion. Standing up for human rights is standing up for the values enshrined in the Olympic Charter.

  3. brutal dictorship funded by americans should be the headline. america can stop pointing the finger at china and at the same time look at our own people and how they are treated here. Yes america is the greatest place to live for many but not all. as we let jobs get relocated to every country and we all cry about gas prices we have made and elected and fed this process for over 20 years.

  4. Yes—We do fund China and don’t care anything about how we get our cheap stuff.

  5. Human rights should be the core attention
    of every aspect of life. Because once disrupted
    everything else is affected.
    Please email me back I have an issue to share.

    Many thanks.

  6. Show your solidarity for Chinese bloggers who risk censure, arrest, torture and even imprisonment for peacefully expressing speaking out online.

    Help them by taking part in Amnesty International’s online Day of Protest against Internet censorship. Check it out – http://action.uncensor.com.au/dop/

    The Internet should be a medium for the freedom of expression, not repression.

    Internet censorship helps the Chinese authorities to hide the true extent of human rights abuses – like their use of the death penalty, torture and detention without trial and the persecution of human rights defenders.

    Support Chinese bloggers’ right to freedom of expression and speech.
