Summer Olympics 2008 Boycott

Held a sort of impromptu information event about the Olympic Boycott at my island on Friday night. 5-7 p.m. I initially had the information and images that I got from avatar Scarabeus Kurka. Then I put up linked copies of an email from Change.org about the impact of the Olympics on the people of China. Then I found out about the concert in support of the Tibetan people by Space Junky and put a copy of their Tibetan Olympic Torch on my land. They have over a hundred sims participating.

Overall a very good day for both the giving and taking of info.

All the info is still there and you can take copies of most of it.
