Video Review: Human Rights Torch Relay Begins in Athens

Posted by Author on August 26, 2007

NTDTV-

CHAN:

Hundreds of supporters from all over the world gathered at Syntagma Square in Athens to witness the inaugural launch of the Global Human Rights Torch Relay yesterday. This Torch Relay aims to remind the world of the true essence of the Olympic Games, and that the 2008 Beijing games should be boycotted, due to the Chinese Communist Regime’s past and current human rights abuses.

STORY:

The torch has begun its journey exactly one year prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It was hosted by more than 300 members of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong or CIPFG.

The Human Rights Torch will follow the same path as the Olympic Torch, seeking to remind the world that the Olympic Games symbolize world peace and freedom, values unfortunately opposed by the Chinese Communist regime.

[Martin Rubenis, Latvian Olympian]:

“Looking towards Beijing I cannot find a single reason why the Communist regime of China has a moral right to represent the ideals and highest principles of the Olympic moment.”

A chief investigator of human organ harvesting in China, Mr. David Kilgour was there to support the event.

[David Kilgour, Co-Author, ‘Bloody Harvest’ Report]:

“Independent international organizations, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights in China, have been saying in several years that human rights are not getting better in China, they are getting worse as the games approach. And contrary to what the government of China promised when they won the rights to host the Olympic games.”

A list of more than 10,000 supporters in China was presented, with their wish to have human rights in China before the Olympics.

Three Greek Goddesses of Freedom lit the torch, evoking a joyful moment of peace, equality and freedom.

Many people were moved to tears by the symbolic event, with warm embraces seen throughout the crowd.

In ancient Greece, fire represented the will of the Gods. And so it is hoped that the flame of human rights will remind peoples from across the globe the value of righteousness and propriety, as the Human Rights Torch Relay travels to 35 nations and more than 100 cities.
