As we all know, there's been quite a bit of controversy surrounding the Olympics in China.  Obviously all of us here wish that were not the case.  However, I don't think this group should ignore the negative stories.

Here is a BBC article about migrant workers being forced to leave Beijing, so that they don't tarnish Beijing's image.  They're being asked to leave the city they helped build.
