Sherry: They had a peaceful demonstration yesterday, and ¡
Anderson: I understand, I understand very well¡
Sherry: ¡it went really well. The citizens of Salt Lake City were really open to them, and their peacefulness really touched the people here.
Sherry: I know it¡¯s not easy for you to under such pressure to give us this opportunity to be in Salt Lake. And I am really grateful for that.
Anderson: It¡¯s actually what I value a great deal--people, regardless of their messages, to be able to get it out. I know your organization has not had the opportunity to do that in your own country. And as long as people conduct themselves lawfully, I think that gives a lot of credibility to their message, and certainly to your message. And as long as we can get along peacefully, we¡¯ll do everything we can to accommodate.
Sherry: Yes, yes, because the Olympics embrace peace and humanity, this time especially, and I think that happening in Salt Lake is a great place to have it. People here are very very gentle and very nice.
Anderson: And I think you¡¯ll find a hospitable people, people who will listen to your message.
Sherry: Exactly, That¡¯s exactly what we found yesterday. So it was really good. I was wondering if you¡¯ve been under any kind of pressure. For example I know that the governor has been under some pressure as far as the proclamation, and I know you also were visited by some Chinese officials.
Anderson: We told them that this is a free nation, as long as these people conduct themselves lawfully, we welcome and embrace them to our community.
Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
Good to meet you.
