I only have very basic cable, so do not watch CNN or MSNBC or any of the other news media besides the major networks. In an effort to get a more comprehensive picture of current events, listen to public radio, and I look things up online. I am giving you a few links I found.
Much more detail here: Save Tibet
This article in Der Spiegel finally mentions the Olympics, and how China is having trouble in presenting itself in a good light. No kidding. International Herald Tribune talks about it, too.
Did you see the part about the protest marchers who want to march 900 miles from Dharamsala to Lhasa? I know I wish I could just up and go and participate. Just imagine it: hundreds of thousands of people showing up in Lhasa, in support of the Tibetan monks. What would the Chinese do? Shoot all of them?
There is a documentary, Cry of the Snow Lion, which gives insight into what happened since the Dalai Lama went into exile in 1959. I want to highly recommend you set an evening aside this week and rent that movie. It will get you up to speed on the changes that took place in Tibet.
I would like to know your reaction to what is happening in Tibet.
