More From the Authoritarian Games

A Protester was removed from an equestrian event in Beijing.
Christina Chan tried to display the flag, hidden under a Canadian flag, at the dressage in Hong Kong.

She was asked to leave, but refused to do so, and was later removed from the arena with a second protester.

The Games opened in Beijing on Friday with a spectacular display of fireworks, music and dancing.
Spectacular the event may have been, but the repression remains. Boycott the "games". China does not deserve our admiration or attention.
