CNN World : Tibet : Torch Extinguished In Paris

I was planning to go to Paris today to be a part of the protest but didn't make it up there... Watched it on the news, though. I was impressed to see the amount of people protesting, it seemed a bit chaotic in some areas. I do believe in peaceful protests, like Ghandi and MLK Jr., so it was a shame to see it get out of hand. I just wish that gov'ts would respect human rights and put an end to violence.

Coming soon (like in an hour or so) my report of the whole thing (I actually have been able to go to Trocadero, Hôtel de Ville, Assemblée Nationale and Charlety... yeah, I had the whole afternoon free finally) on my blog...

It was not a pretty sight...

Well today we should be able to find out how the US handles everything. I was away on business but trying to keep track of the news.
