I can’t be in San Francisco today to protest China while the Olympic torch is being passed through. But I did want my voice to be heard and for my face to be seen.
Last week I received an email from the Save Darfur Campaign that made me want to do my part. It easy. All you need to do is download the flyer and take a picture of yourself holding it. It’s too late now to have it on their banner in San Francisco, but you can post it on your website and let people know what is going on.
I’m not only doing this for the innocent people of Darfur. You see, China is responsible for selling arms to Darfur and they have played a major role in supporting the government of Khartourm and has aided its military so it has the ability to continue the genocide.
I am also doing this to help the innocent of Tibet. Tibet wants to become independent once again from China. You can take a look at the Free Tibet website and see how they are working to help. Their mission: Free Tibet Campaign stands for the Tibetans’ right to determine their own future. It campaigns for an end to China’s occupation of Tibet and for the Tibetans’ fundamental human rights to be respected.
You can read CNN’s article, San Francisco Braces for Olympic Torch Protests to see what is happening.
So this is what I can do from my house. What can you do?
