Protesters Raise Tibetan Flag Outside Olympic Stadium
Posted by John Kennedy to Global Voices Online
Still waiting (updating below) for more details, but Qik.com vlogger Noel Hidalgo is at the scene and giving updates via Twitter. Here's a video he took just a few minutes ago not far from the Olympic bird's nest:
Noel has just finished uploading a second video, in which he reports that Chinese firemen have taken down one protester and one appears to be coming down the other pole; no sign of the third protester who was stationed on the ground as seen in the clip above:

There is now a tibetan protester climbing a western poll. Moving to att pim for qik
Wow! The locals are hot and bothered. Heading back to the hotel.
Now i'm being followed by a little old lady who told the last cab driver to kick me out. On foot looking for other followers.
Found a cab and now i'm heading for some coffee to chill for a bit.
