Beijing olympics
The olmpics should not be held in Beijing for many resons here are some......
pollution in Beijing is a frightening concept.I have learn't that in China on most days the sky is grey and you can't even see the sun this is because of air pollution.A microgram is the amount of pollution recorded in the air, the average amount is 50 but on the 29th of july in Beijing it was over 350 micrograms and in wellington it is only 17 on most days.Before the olympics started the Beijing goverment made the people clean the water from algea did you know that the algea is actually made by the sewage which is going into the water.

As a person in Beijing it would not be easy, if you live in China you are only aloud 1 child and if you have more it will be sold or get looked after by someone alse.
Some people even get sent to jail just for asking qestions like why are you bulldozing our house. the people of china have to live in fear.

In Beijing they also have a problem with terrorests which are constantly attacking .Only about a week ago 16 policemen where killed in a terrorest attack .

security,They say the security is really really good but then how did the people manage to secretly film the opening ceremony.
The olypics should not be held in Beijing because of bad security,a amazing amount of pollution,terrorest attacks and match more.
