Edited video from 4/25/07 protest by free Tibet activists on Mount Everest. The footage was captured from a live satellite streaming video.
Three Tibetan independence activists, including one Tibetan-American, were detained by Chinese authorities Wednesday after demonstrating at Mount Everest's main base camp in Tibet, unfurling a banner reading "One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008" in English, and "Free Tibet" written in Tibetan and Chinese.
The protest was held on the eve of the International Olympic Committee's announcement of the final Beijing 2008 Olympic torch relay route and as a Chinese team of climbers prepared a trial ascent of the mountain with the Olympic torch. The activists are currently being detained by China, who is refusing to give them access to US consular services.
