Tibet Protestors Desecrate Historic, Holy Sites
Small groups of angry demonstrators demanding "peace" desecrated the historic site of the ancient Olympic Games in Olympia, Greece, and a Buddhist shrine in Nepal yesterday in a carefully orchestrated global publicity stunt connected to if not coordinated by the the Dalai Lama.
In Olympia, Greece, birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games, demonstrators were prevented from staging their "freedom run" by local police. Olympia Mayor Giorgos Aidonis said “Olympia is a site of peace, not a place for political conflict or the settlement of disputes.”
Other protests occurred outside the Boudhanath holy shrine in Nepal, in New Delhi, and outside the San Francisco City Hall.
