Hi - anyone out there?

The recent events in Tibet have brought this topic to mind again. I usually watch and enjoy the Olympic Games, but I will not be watching this time. A report in the news today said that sponsors are beginning to face pressure from activists. Today I wrote to Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Lenovo - some of the Olympic sponsors. Their websites should be easy to find - so I don't think I need to put them here - with my dial up it would take so long to load them and check.

Previously I'd written the USOC and NBC which will do the broadcasting. I would urge everyone to boycott watching the games, to let the sponsors know, and to encourage everyone you know to do the same.
