Peking 2008 Letter delivered to President Burlando

A letter from the "Seborga nel Mondo" Association (Seborga in the World), addressed to the Italian Minister for Sport, Giovanna Melandri and to the Italian athletes competing at the Olympic Games, Peking (Beijing) 2008, was delivered into the hands of the President of the Liguria Region, Claudio Burlando.

The letter was written with the intent of promoting awareness in the Italian political arena of the genocide committed in Tibet and to ask the athletes to become ambassadors of a strong message of solidarity by wearing - in any way they like - the flag and the signs of Tibet during the opening ceremony of the Games and during the sporting events.
