6. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Jorge Cobato, Buenos Aires resident:
"This action is not against the Olympic Games, it is simply to call attention to the fact that the Olympics are taking place in a country that violates human rights, that doesn't respect the Olympic code, because in fact if the Olympic code had been carefully read, in no way could these Olympics be taking place in China at this moment."

Small anti-China demonstrations took place on Friday in Buenos Aires during the Olympic torch's only Latin American stop, a relay that protesters threatened to disrupt with "entertaining surprises."
About 25 Falun Gong supporters lit their own "human rights torch," marching along the Olympic flame's route to protest against China's ban on the spiritual movement.
Others held up "Free Tibet" banners, and pro-Tibet activists promised unspecified actions.
A few dozen China supporters in red shirts rallied outside the presidential palace in favour of the Beijing Olympics.
Argentina has barricaded the streets and deployed thousands of police for the relay.
Human rights groups have said their protests will be peaceful, and pledged not to try to grab the torch or put out the flame.
But after protests marred earlier torch stops in Paris, London and San Francisco, Argentine officials scrambled to avoid trouble.
Protesters say China doesn't deserve to host the Olympics because of its human rights record, its harsh rule in Tibet and its friendly ties with Sudan.
"This action is not against the Olympic Games, it is simply to call attention to the fact that the Olympics are taking place in a country that violates human rights," said Buenos Aires resident, Jorge Cobato.
About 1,300 federal police, 1,500 naval police and 3,000 traffic police and volunteers were deploying along the 8�-mile (14-kilometre) relay route.
The Olympic flame, in an ornately decorated lantern, was being protected by Chinese guards.
The torch was quickly hustled off the plane on its arrival from San Francisco on Thursday, as officials cancelled a planned photo opportunity on the tarmac.
Guards loaded the lantern onto a bus and rushed away to a secret location, escorted by wailing police cars and an ambulance. Local security officials wouldn't say where it was headed.
Following the relay, the torch will be tucked aboard a Chinese jetliner and flown to Tanzania.
