If I had sold Tibetan merchandise in San Francisco, London, or Paris, I would be extremely rich. It seems everybody and their mothers came out to support Tibet and the “human rights” issue. Below is a video that shows how informed these people really are.
If you can’t find Tibet on a map, why are you protesting? If you say for “human rights”, I’m going to ask where you find your sources; watching Seven Years in Tibet isn’t enough to call yourself an expert on Tibet. The only reason these people are protesting is because of the publicity the media is giving them. For all you Tibet supporters, why didn’t ya’ll feel so strongly Tibet last year? There are so many other issues today that the world should focus their attention on. For instance, the fighting in Somalia, Darfur, or the food crisis in Senegal, all have more precedence than human rights in Tibet; yet, human rights in Tibet seems to be the most worthy of the protesters’ voice.
Here is a website that is campaigning for Tibet. If you look at the human rights section you see it’s a little over 200 words. Talk about Information overload on an issue those Tibet supports feel so adamantly about.
In conclusion, it’s really sad that these Tibetan protesters are trying to ruin China’s image. Rather than focusing on a more serious problem, they’re going all out to stop the Olympics for an issue they don’t know much about. They make it seem like Tibet is the new concentration camp that China built to suppress the Tibetans.
Team Tibet is really putting on some show.
