BEIJING (AP) — On the 19th anniversary of Tiananmen Square massacre human rights groups are Tuesday calling on China to release dozens of prisoners remain imprisoned for taking part in the 1989 pro-democracy protests centered in Tiananmen Square

Her opinion may hurt, but Sharon Stone raised millions dollar fund to save more life than you know including for Chinese earthquake, Burma Cyclone and other causes.

During a red-carpet interview at the Cannes Film Festival Thursday, Stone said she'd been torn about what to do for the victims of the earthquake in China, whose staggering death toll has been steadily climbing and could surpass 80,000, because she doesn't agree with the country's policies.

"I'm not happy about the way that the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else," she told reporters at Cannes. "And so I have been very concerned about how to think and what to do because I don't like that."

She said she's also been wondering how the United States should handle the Olympics because China is "not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who's a good friend of mine."

When the earthquake hit, Stone wondered if it was a case of what goes around, comes around.

"Then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice, that the bad things happen to you?" said the 50-year-old star.

"That made me cry," she said. "Sometimes you have to learn to put your head down and be of service, even to people who aren't nice to you. That's a big lesson for me."
