More on Free Tibet t-shirts

There is a movement afoot, for athletes attending the Summer Games in Beijing China to wear FREE TIBET t-shirts. According to the Chicago Tribune an athlete will

"face no official rebuke for wearing a T-shirt that says "Free Tibet" while walking the streets of Beijing during the 2008 Summer Games.
But wear that shirt in the Olympic Village or any sports venue, and the athlete might be on the next plane home after violating the international Olympic Charter."

If you are an athlete from any country -- or anyone who will be attending the Olympics in Beijing, you ought to read the full article. It seems there's a fine line between making a statement and offending the Chinese government.

Free Tibet In Chinese Dark T-Shirt $23.99

Lotus Free Tibet Button $2.25

Free Tibet in Chinese on a Red Flag $29.95
