Olympic Torch Extinguished

Recommended Posts

Paris police have conceived a security plan to keep the torch in a safe "bubble," during its 17-mile (28 km) journey, with a multi-layered protective force to surround the torch as it moves along the route.

 

French torchbearers will be encircled by several hundred officers, some in riot police vehicles and on motorcycles, others on rollerblades and on foot. Chinese torch escorts will immediately surround the torchbearer, with Paris police on rollerblades moving around them. French firefighters in jogging shoes will encircle the officers on rollerblades while motorcycle police will form the outer layer of securit

Olympic torch relay resumes on ground in Paris

(Xinhua)

Updated: 2008-04-07 21:06

 

 

 

PARIS - The Beijing Olympic torch relay resumed on ground around 2 pm (1200 GMT) on Monday after the torch was twice put onto bus during earlier for technical reasons, a Xinhua photographer following the torch relay witnessed.

 

The torch was first put on a bus shortly after its start from the starting point, the Eiffel Tower, and the second time was around 1: 30 pm (1130 GMT).

 

Earlier, a member from the French Greens Party had attempted to snatch the torch from former world 400 meters hurdles champion Stephane Diagana, the first torchbearer, but was stopped by policemen.

 

Around 3,000 French policemen have been deployed to protect the 28-km Olympic torch relay in Paris, which started shortly after midday and is expected to conclude at 5 p.m. (1500 GMT) at Stade Charlety in the south of Paris.

 

 

GOVERNMENT NEWS SITE ACCESSED FROM BEIJING.

 

They've been running a lot of stories on TV saying that the Western media is out to make China look bad (they never say why though) and any thing that isn't explained by that line just gets blamed on the Deli L*mm*h. I have a Chinese born and bred girlfriend and I have trouble explaining to her that while the Western media isn't a bastion of honesty, neither is the Chinese.

No, there are many private news agencies and the constitution allows free speech.

 

BUT, you are not allowed to say anything that threatens stability and security and it is up to the government as to how that is interpreted. News agencies that show the state up on its problems usually have trouble staying on the air.

Yeah, but America supports a global capital market and therefore needs to compete with Chinese imports. Of course, China's RMB may not be as valued as it should be, but the products would still be bought in the US. If you don't want them to sell out then you have to produce cheaper products yourself or not support a global capital market.
