On – site reporting: Pro – Tibet demonstration in Chicago. Relacja z miejsca wydarzen – demonstracja na rzecz obrony praw Tybetanczykow, Chicago 2008

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Hundreds of protesters marched through downtown Chicago, calling attention to China’s record on human rights. The demonstration came on the same day as the opening ceremonies for the Olympic Games in Beijing, 2008.
Protests similar to the one in Chicago took place in cities around the world.
The controversy behind the protests centers on nearly 50 years of Chinese rule in Tibet. The message of the demonstration was the same as in past times, but the timing was unique because of the opening ceremonies.
In Chicago, Tibetans and Tibetan supporters protested in Water Tower Park, then outside of the Chinese Consulate.
