US protests ahead of Olympic torch


uk.news.yahoo.com

BEIJING (Reuters) - Protesters angered over China's crackdown in Tibet marched in San Francisco ahead of the Olympic torch's arrival on Wednesday but Olympics chief Jacques Rogge said there are no plans to cut short the global torch relay.

The torch will be carried through the West coast city during the flame's only U.S. stop, but several hundred activists had already marched through its streets on the eve of the procession, many carrying Tibetan flags and signs and chanting "Shame on China"

I thought the whole purpose to the Olympics was to abolish borders, and come together for FUN!!! Whatever happened to that?

I would even go so far as to say that it wasn't necessarily a series of games designed to abolish borders. But I would say that it was used as a way for all countries to come together to compete for fun, while at the same time making friends with those other nations that came.

In the end, it's all about peace-making.
