Olympic Torch Relay - In San Francisco - They must be Mad.

The Olympic torch will pass through San Francisco today. Have the Bozos that arranged the Olympic Torch Relay's route no idea at all about the City of San Francisco? It may have a large Asian-American (Chinatown) population, but it also has a massive LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender/Transsexual) community who are renown for their fight for both Gay and Human rights.

There have been protests in the City before the torch has even arrived, God knows what the scenes will be like when they try to parade the flame through the streets. The picture (top right) shows "students for a Free Tibet" activists unfurling two massive banners from the Golden Gate Bridge on Monday. You can watch footage of the demonstration by clicking HERE.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has urged all leaders of the world not to go to Beijing - he said: "For God's sake, for the sake of our children, for the sake of their children, for the sake of the beautiful people of Tibet - don't go. "Tell your counterparts in Beijing you wanted to come but looked at your schedule and realised you have something else to do."
