2008 Olympics


Hundreds of thousands of Chinese in Beijing have been left homeless due to the destruction that has been launched in preparation for the 2008 Olympics. While images of Chinese wandering the streets of Beijing, sobbing amidst the debris they once called "home" are being viewed on televisions throughout the world, the bulldozers continue with the demolition sanctioned by the Chinese government and millions continue to make plans to attend the 2 week event. The price that is being paid by so many families in Beijing is for a government that cares more about its global image and lining the pockets of an elite few, rather than the majority of its people.
