A parish priest in western Poland has locked himself in his church
and has announced that until the end of the Olympic Games in Beijing
he will continue a hunger strike to protest the violation of human
rights by China.

The priest, who likes to be called Father Ed, has raised a Tibetan
flag on a pole near the church. He has for years fought with Chinese
products and even exchanged First Communion prayer books for children
when he learned they had been printed in China.

Of his protest, the priest said that he hopes his stand and his
prayers will move some consciences in support of "Crucified Tibet".
