Shcd from wrote a boycott action report against Carrefour in Beijing [zh]. The action is a reaction against France's failure in guarding the Olympic torch relay in Paris.

    Poor people… you are nothing for your government, and you follow it like a sheep…
    I hate people generalizing on other people, one is a fucker in the country so everybody else…
    I love USA and i hate Bush, I love France and i hate Sarkozi, i love China and i hate their governement too… You’re not able to see something else that you’re told to see… Racism has never been a solution.

    You are all so stupid and so sellfish…we are not talking about supermarket here…but about human rights and about the freedom of tibetan people! Wake up chineses…when will you realize that your government always keep you far from the truth…Tibet has not always been Chinese…it’s time to give back what you stole…

    What surprise me even more…and what I do not realize…is that getting human rights would be a good thing for every chinese…so what’s wrong guys…Do you like to be treaten like pets, slaves…you should understand that fighting for Tibet means fighting for your own right as well…or maybe you are just afraid…

    I let you deal with your conscious…

    J’ai honte de parler français mais j’suis obligé pour faire comprendre les facophones.
    Si on demande un français pourquoi le boycott des JO Békin, il dirait: euh… eux… ils… ils n’ont pas de droit humain… si on l’interroge davandage, il reste la bouche béante comme un con.
    Conclusion: les français sont cons, indéniablement, et depuis toujours.

    Almost everything sold at Carrefour in China is “Made in China”. A boycott of Carrefour will only hurt the Chinese Economy. Wake up you little nationalistic minions!

    As a chinese,I am proud of our goverment.You know nothing about our country,just hear some rumour,ridiculous stories.
    “when will you realize that your government always keep you far from the truth…Tibet has not always been Chinese.
    “when will you realize that your government always keep you far from the truth…Tibet has not always been Chinese”???????
    so,you know????Tibet has not always been Chinese?
    Who told you ? I am in Tibet now!I know all the thing
    about incident.That is an intrigue!!Without our government ,we couldn’t lead happiness lives but
    Dane Nama and those terrorist interrupted our lives.
    I hate them,all the citizen of Tibet hate too.

    To Reason from Switzerland, the chinese knows about their government, the good and bad. They got internet and they travel overseas in loads. The problem is they don’t see Tibet the way you see it. And it is not because they don’t have access to the free world’s media or the government’s propaganda. They just see this whole thing as a coordinated campaign against Chinese People. I wonder when the west and China can understand each other.

  • Franck in Paris

    ConFranck : merci de montrer à quel point t’es un pauv type ignorant et raciste qui connait rien à la France et aux français : un sondage récent montre que 55% des français sont contre un boycott des JO et sur les 45% restants je suis sur qu’au moins la moitié en ont rien à foutre.
    Tes insultes minables sont ridicules.

    It’s a very sad day in china regarding the reaction to the international events going on, the only result that will come from boycotting carrefour and wal-mart is a loss to the chinese economy, who works at carrefour in china? (chinese people) Who buys products at carrefour (chinese people) Who benefits at least a certain percent from sales made at carrefour? (CHINA) Look at it from a rational perspective people, you will only be hurting yourselves. Wake up, dont be blind, you are being used as in “TOOL” in the hand of the monster, and for what, in the end only to hurt yourself… My heart is really grieved and goes out to the naive population who are buy the lies.

    Let’s find out more and then give comments, all right? I’m a chinese living in mainland, and I came here to see what our friends will comment on our actions these days. We just want to give a sound to SOMEONE but not all friendly guys. Dipute cannot be solutions…And can anybody else act as me to dig the truth and then give his/her idea? I believe most are our friends and most are welcome Olympics.

  • Debbie

    I’ve never been so proud of to be a Chinese.I love my country and whatever happened to Tibet that Tibet was, is and will be a part of China forever.I just wanna say there’s none of your business about our own country.
    Dear western contury if you wanna help other contries plz shut up first and deal with your own affairs well then you can commend.You know the population of China and we will show our power.
