Something to Learn From Australia

No matter if you listen to Radio Australia or to other media, one can apparently say that the Olympic torch relay in Canberra has been a success. Of course, a bit of chaos around the demonstrations is normal, but when it is the Olympics, some basic order should always be maintained.

Australia respects every person’s freedoms. Han Chinese and Tibetans both held demonstrations around the torch relay, and the police only made sure that they wouldn’t run into each other. In this respect, Europe should learn from Australia.

Another thing to learn from Australia is that Australian police did not allow the Chinese “guards” to run next to the torch. That’s a matter of self-respect.
