Amnesty International: China Is Getting Ready

When I first saw these ads, I didn’t know much about Amnesty International and their mission in the world. After some digging I’ve learned that the Amnesty focus on five key areas: Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, Ending Torture and Execution, Rights of Refugees and Rights of Prisoners of Conscience. Their primary mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination, within the context of its work to promote all human rights.


In the name of ensuring stability and harmony in the country during the 2008 Olympic Games, the Chinese Government continues to detain and harass political activists, journalists, lawyers and human rights workers. Get involved www.amnesty.sk.”

  1. Chinas Internal Human rights issues are the most horrific with live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners organs for sale to the highest bidder. Livers in 2 weeks kidneys in a week, Its all in a report at http://investigation.go.saveinter.net/

    CIPFG are also boycotting the Games. Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong is made up of non Falun Gong practitioners who are very worried about this Genocide against Falun Gong practitioners in China. Here is their link
    http://cipfg.org/en/

    Initiated by CIPFG there is a Human Rights Relay Torch traversing the world to expose these atrocities happening in China today.

  2. Feels Like 1936 Again

    The Olympic Spirit hangs its head in shame
    When police states are allowed to host the games
    Like Germany when Hitler reigned supreme
    Seeking glory for his murderous regime


    Now China wants to shine upon that stage
    East and West are eager to engage But human rights the CCP disdains Feels like 1936 again.


    Can you hold an international track meet
    When you got a labor camp right down the street?
    Can you sponsor the Olympics in 08
    When you still imprison people for their faith?


    The CCP will change what can be seen
    They'll even paint the grass and mountains green
    But their evil nature always will remain
    Feels like 1936 again.


    They torture people seven days a week
    The shock batons are sizzling as we speak
    They harvest organs from the Falun Gong
    Then cremate them to hide what's going on.

    Put me on your blacklist I don't care
    I hope the people boycott this affair
    The stench of genocide is in the wind
    Feels like 1936 again.


    Reports about the slaughter of the Jews
    Quite often didn't even make the news
    The world still seems to have a tendency
    To ignore big crimes against humanity

    When virtue comes in second place to trade
    Freedom, hope and justice start to fade
    The Olympic flame is flickering and dim
    Feels like 1936 again
