Stop China's Censorship of the Olympics

Hi ,

Going against their own mandate to protect the independence of the Olympic Movement and to preserve human dignity, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has caved to Beijing's demands to censor the media's Internet access during the Games, including sites dealing with human rights, Tibet or other "dangerous" topics". The IOC needs to stand up to China and stand up for freedom of press!

The IOC's mission is not to be China's accomplice but to "place sport at the service of the harmonious development of man, with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity," and that won't happen as long as the games are held against a backdrop of torture, political persecution and lies.

Tell the IOC to demand free Internet access for journalists covering the Olympic Games and to pressure China to improve human rights before the Games.

Thanks for taking action!
