Olympic Fashionistas

Isn't it amazing how quickly the international agenda set by protesters can change? A few weeks ago, the tragedy in Darfur was all the rage. Today, it has been relegated to the back burner as Chinese actions in Tibet take centre stage. I'm sure the genocidal government in Khartoum is revelling in its new-found anonymity. Meanwhile the millions suffering in Darfur continue to be a sore reminder of the hypocrisy and ADHD that characterises the protest movement. I sure hope the Tibetans make the most of the international attention while it lasts.
