Tibetans protesting in China

The "Students for a Free Tibet", an international organization has sent its members to China to protest against China's invasion and occupation of Tibet several times this year. They protested at least three times within China this year. Its members put up signs protesting against the communist Olympics to be hosted in Beijing and the invasion of Tibet by the Chinese Communist Party once in Beijing, once on the top of Mount Everest, and once at the Great Wall of China. Each time members of the Students for a Free Tibet were arrested and detained. The lastest episode was the arresting of the director of the Students for a Free Tibet in Beijing, who was writing her blog about the things happening there.

Reportedly, some of the members involved in these protests were released.
