"Beijing Olympics - China" - Journeyman Pictures via YouTube

Copied from the video notes:

July 2001 - Many former critics supported Beijing in its frantic attempt to win the bid, lured by potential contracts. We explore shocking statistics showing that China has executed 1200 people since April [2001] and assess the role of human rights in the face of politics and big business in Olympic bidding.

This video is 7 years old. There are some sections during interviews where only Mandarin is spoken, with no dubbing/subtitles. Also, as a WARNING, there is some disturbing, uncensored footage around the 9:28 of public executions.

Food for thought. Twenty-nine hours left.
