Should we boycott the Olympic Games in Beijing?
When China was awarded the 2008 Olympic Games, it promised to improve human rights and press freedom - a promise Reporters Without Borders and other organizations say it has failed to keep. Last week, the media watchdog said that U.S. President Bush should urge the Chinese authorities to release political prisoners and end censorship.
Should your country boycott the Olympics to take a stand against the Chinese government's control over the media? When awarded the 2008 Olympic Games, China made promises regarding press freedom. Has the country lived up to these promises? Should the country have been granted the honor of hosting the Olympics in the first place? Is media censorship in China an issue other countries should get involved with?
