China's Olympic Protestors
Monday, August 11, 2008
The day before the Olympics, and China has rounded up several "known protestors" and taken them into custody. The Chinese authorities aren't arresting unruly mobs of people, threatening the safety of passersby with their violent meetings. They are going to old women's houses at 2 AM and rounding up dissidents.

The police deny any arrests have been made, even as AP reporters are speaking to protestors who are at the police station.

Meanwhile, an American in town for the Olympics was killed, and an entire city in Western China is shut down after terrorist bombings.

Let's pray for the safety of innocent civilians - Chinese and otherwise - while the Olympics are going on!
