Protesters climb the Golden Gate Bridge
April 7, 2008 9:01 PM
Three pro-Tibet activists climbed the Golden Gate Bridge and unveiled a banner in protest of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, said Golden Gate Bridge spokesperson Mary Currie.
The protesters are from Students for a Free Tibet and had written "One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008" on the banner.
The group scaled the bridge around 10:15 a.m. and came down voluntarily around 1:00 p.m. One member needed assistance from bridge crew because she was tangled in the banner.
Two men and a woman were arrested and will be charged with criminal trespassing, according to Kary Witt, Golden Gate Bridge manager. Witt said the group hid climbing equipment in at least one baby carriage.
The move comes two days before the Olympic Torch makes its only North American appearance.
