Heard something interesting through CNN that some activists are trying to get a boycott of the 2008 Olympics in China, and I was wondering if anyone had any more info on that, or thoughts on the effectiveness/unintended consequences of such an action, considering our diplomatic history with China and how well boycotting other Olympics has worked.

The article: China's Hu visits Sudan

And the clip: China is due to host the 2008 Olympics, and activists are campaigning for a boycott of the Games if China does not use its permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council to put pressure on Sudan to accept U.N. peacekeepers in Darfur to end the violence.

Thank you.
