Chinese Government Deports Tourist Filming Free-Tibet Protest 3


By Ben Haber

Noel Hidalgo was walking around Tiananmen Square in China on Saturday when he came across a free-Tibet protest. He decided to Twitter the protest, and also broadcast it live over Qik.

It turned out that the live broadcast ended up being his ticket home.

Chinese authorities deported Hidalgo as a result of the live video streaming, sending him back to the United States. So while it has been reported that many Chinese have been very eager to please visitors during the Olympic Games, it turns out that anything involving Tibet is crossing the line.

You can follow Hidalgo on Twitter, where he provided updates on his deportation and trip home.
