The president of Students for a Free Tibet is in Beijing right now, exactly one year ahead of the 2008 Olympics, vlogging and blogging about Tibetan sovereignty and being a general pain in the ass to the Chinese government.
Lhadon Tethong’s liveblogging experiment is incredibly ballsy or incredibly foolhardy, depending on how you look at it — hard to imagine this lasting long before authorities arrest, extradite, or take some other action to stop the activity.
Apparently, she’s already attracted a group of official government “escorts”.
Incidentally, Ms. Tethong’s uncle is the most senior advisor to H.H. the Dalai Lama.
