Torch relay against China in Chicago

A torch relay wound through Lincoln Park earlier Saturday. The Human Rights Torch Relay hopes to raise awareness of what it says are human rights crimes by the Chinese communist regime against members of the Falun Gong spiritual movement.

Organizers say China has breached the Olympic human rights charter it signed when it was granted the 2008 Olympic games by the International Olympic Committee.

The 2008 Olympic Games are scheduled to be held in Beijing, China in August 2008.
