Scottish Protests over the Beijing Olympics

The Chinese Community March

In respose to our Olympic Torch Protest, the Edinburgh chinese community put on their own tit-for-tat march, which we supsect was funded by the local consulate. Their flags weren't nearly as artistic as ours, though, in fact I reckon they ought to watch-out for any farmer's markets taking place, as those plain red rags might be seen as as antagonistic by any bulls in the vicinity. ;-)

" I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. I'm not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gambling (though I'm not knocking them), but something that will bring true and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks." H.H. The Dalai Lama
