Chinese community reacts to free Tibet movement

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Members of the Chinese community on campus are currently rallying against the violence in Tibet and in support of the 2008 Beijing Olympics on the steps of the Student Union.

Chanting "One China," and "One World, One Dream," and waving a Chinese flag participants are handing out what they described as educational flyers depicting the truth about Tibet.

Approximatly a hundred Chinese students gathered outside the Student Union at 11 a.m. this morning and the numbers increased throughout the event, as participants spread out towards the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, waving placards and chanting.

The irony of Chinese students using free speech to protest is classic.

wow, there is another people who thinks he knows everything and represents for truth. Maybe you do. Say before you see is the way to get Nobel prize just like Dalai Lama. BTW, do you know where is Tibet? Their culture? what does people want in Tibet? If you have time to care about our business, maybe you need time to read something....if you can....read. You are fighting for the rights of the people who is living in China while Chinese people are highly supporting our government? I just recall a sentence which is said by a famous writer" knows nothing, so has no fear"
