A TIBETAN protester jumped a plastic barrier and ran towards the Chinese embassy in Canberra during a demonstration today against human rights abuses in his homeland.

The man ran towards the embassy waving a Tibetan flag and shouting “shame, China, shame”.

He was tackled to the ground by Australian Federal Police and taken to a police van.

I hope this doesn’t come out of the local policing budget.

Why is that man wearing blue overalls and chequers on his hat? Is he trying to start a new fashion?

As much as Tom Tom thinks I’m a liberal stooge, I’m going to start attending anti Chinese/ Pro tibetan rallies.

Cant wait for the Torch Relay to come to town. There could be thousands of protesters for the Chinese Govt to pretend never existed…
