Beijing Olympics Float of Shame - Pasadena CA


China has taken advantage of Pasadena to include a propaganda float
in the 2008 year’s Annual Rose Parade to be held on New Year’s Day

While China readies to host the Olympics in 2008, it has already won the gold medal for being the number 1 supporter of Burma’s brutal military regime. China is the biggest financial supporter and arms supplier of the military junta in Burma. Using arms supplied by China, the Burmese military, like China in the past, has killed thousands of people including recent killings of peaceful protesters and monks. Not only China refuses to condemn the ongoing atrocities in Burma but it continues blocking the US and UN efforts to bring about peace and restoration of democracy in Burma.

It is TIME we say to China, stop your bloody game in Burma
