Tibetan independence activists stage protest at Great Wall of China (AP, 8/07/07)

A Tibetan independence group says six of its activists were arrested Tuesday after staging a protest at the Great Wall of China.

A spokesman for the Free Tibet campaign said two members abseiled down the side of the Great Wall on Tuesday morning and unfurled a large banner based on the Beijing Olympic slogan, saying "One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008."

The pair stayed on the section of the wall at Mutianyu to the north of Beijing for about two hours before climbing down. They and four other members of the group, some of whom were photographing and videoing the protest, were then arrested.

One beed merely note that Tibet is outside the Wall.
