This afternoon Tibet supporters John Flajnik and Matt Kozuch, students from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, were arrested in an act of civil disobedience at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC.

The act is part of a week-long effort called the “Mobilization for Tibet” intended to draw attention to the issue before President Bush leaves on Friday for Asia and his first official state meeting in Beijing with Jiang Zemin on February 21 and 22.

Daily protests and acts of civil disobedience will continue every day at noon until Friday, February 15. Today’s arrests bring the total to four since the Mobilization for Tibet began on Monday.
