UN Plaza
San Francisco, California 94103

San Francisco is the only North American city the Olympic torch will visit in 2008. When it passes through this week, it's important to demonstrate that not everyone here approves of the Chinese government's ongoing atrocities in Tibet and in mainland China, and its funding of the slaughter in Darfur.
