Anyone who doubts China's Ability to handle Large Crowds assembled to Protest Peacefully needs to remember Tiannamen Square.....This is a Photo of Tankman.....who has never been found....and was most likely killed or Imprisoned.He was never seen after being dragged off to the side , after moving away from the tanks...there were actually a line of tanks- 18 in all that he faced- Alone.

Today the Route of the Torch was cut short and re-routed to a Secret Route, tens of thousands showed up to Protest. For the most part it was peaceful.....and Honoring of Human Rights and Tibet. Thank you to Californians for your Courage. Namaste.

*{Please see the Video Linked to the Title is Dusty's Video about the Protests, called "Beyond Beijing }*

That picture makes me physically ill..and horribly sad.

I am glad that people are standing up, I just wish this had been started before China got the games..or shortly thereafter.

Great reporting E4E..I heart you..keep it up :)

I was going to head downtown today, but working for the city, I knew they would change the course of the torch.

If I got my hands on it, it would've ended up at the bottom of San Francisco Bay. Try to re-ignite that.

It's just as well. The same message was put out without any violence. The whole world now knows that the Olympic torch had to be hidden from view while travelling through the U.S.

PT I DO LOVE AND MISS YOU.....thank you for That Comment above.......yeah, that would be an interesting location for them to re-ignite....!!!!!
( the Journey of Harmony....yeah....such propaganda.....must have been written by Karen Hughes and Rove)

omg...

and I loved that the People that did the Bridge used Many Tactics to Decorate the Bridge ( pretending to be pregnant and Baby carriages to get the Banners and Climbing equipment on the Bridge.....so choreographed - the French Resistance would have been proud... I know I was....)

Thank you PT soooooo good to see you....Thank you California ;-)

You don't live in China and you don't know the true situation here.
In fact China Governemnt and most chinese people give a lot of help and supports to those who lives in Tibet. i affirm these incidents/rumors must be well planed and organized by them for their malicious potical ambition/purpose.I am only a common/ordinary chinese citizen, i know how we treat people there even those help was highly appreicated by the ordinary people in Tibet.

To Anonymous ( "Ordinary Chinese"):
I am sorry, but you are misinformed- it is not your fault- your government ( if you are Chinese) does very much Censor Your News....BUT if you are on the Internet do Learn More, Explore what you can...

You also apparently know little about Buddhists, or the Monks. In Tibet the Monks and the Buddhist Religion are gentle People with good souls, they are very concerned about Human Rights of ALL People, even the Residents of China. In Countries like Tibet the Monks perserve the Culture, History and help to educate the children.

People were killed in the Protests and hurt, and yes, even Monks. Monks are peaceful do not deserve to be imprisoned, neither do the Protestors, or Students. As a Chinese you should be worried that People from the Outside will see that People that Protest a Oppressive Regime are Treated So Poorly- imprisoned or beat , or set upon by the Military. I am sad for you- you are living in a Police State, and you do not probally know that it is all right for people to gather and carry signs and show support for People that are Mistreated and Oppressed. The Monks that protested in Tibet Protested because your Country is Hurting People, Imprisoning and Beating People that do not deserve such treatment.

Do you think the Government taking away ancient Villages is okay ? Do you think the Media Controlling what you read and see is Okay ? all of these things happen in a Country with a Police State....

I hope and pray that the people in your Country learn that ALL people need to be respected and treated with empathy and compassion...Even Tibet...
( but also Burma and Darfur... these are 2 other Countries that your Country is Contributing to Human Rights Abuses...)

I do not blame you, or judge you....I hope you open your mind, your heart and your Eyes to The Truth.

Namaste.
