Call for Armband Protest in Beijing

Published onsdag 8 augusti 2007 kl 13.12
Birgitta Ohlsson

Swedish Liberal Party Member of Parliament Birgitta Ohlsson says athletes participating in the Olympic Games in Beijing next year should wear white armbands as a protest against the dictatorship in China.

As white is the Chinese color for grief and mourning, if the Swedish athletes were to wear white silk bands around their wrists, Ohlsson says, this would be a symbol that Sweden doesn’t accept China’s violations of human rights.

Ohlsson doesn’t believe in a Swedish boycott of the Beijing Olympics, but thinks that politicians here have been too lenient in their criticism towards China and she wants Sweden to pay attention to the millions of people who’ve been victims under the Chinese regime.
