We're all Chinese

Under the slogan "We are all Chinese", nine German Olympians have posed in their sports kit for a Munich magazine while holding pictures of Chinese dissidents in front of their faces.

The pictures were published on the 1st of August in the Sueddeutsche Zeitung magazine under a headline recalling the famous 1963 "Ich bin ein Berliner" (we are all berliners) speech by U.S. President John F. Kennedy that paid tribute to West Berlin's freedom after the Wall was built.

I agree, we are all Chinese.
