The World Hits Munich Stage
Nearly 100 demonstrators led a silent but powerful protest in the middle of Munich’s Odeon’s Platz today, to raise awareness of the controversy created by the Chinese crack down on Tibetan protesters. Outfitted in masks, silent, and standing in solidarity – the demonstrators made quite an impact without saying a word. The impact has been felt around Europe, where the European Union has been by far the most vocal of the Chinese government in their handling of the Tibetan protests. There has been talk all week of boycotting the upcoming Olympics in China, but for the most part has amounted to European leaders deciding to not participate in the opening ceremonies.
