Edward Romero is on the run in the Olympics host city of Beijing.
According to friends and colleagues of the La Puente pastor and philosophy professor at Mt. San Antonio College, Romero is being sought by Chinese authorities for painting two upscale Beijing hotel rooms with anti-oppression slogans such as, "Speak out for those who have no voice," and "Beijing 2008 Our world Our nightmare."
The incidents have caught the interest of news outlets and Internet users worldwide, who have flocked to Romero's YouTube page - "Diary of a Gadfly" - where the La Puente resident videotaped his antics and uploaded them online.
"It's going all over the world at a furious pace," said Tony Thomas, a longtime friend of Romero who has been appointed Romero's unofficial spokesman.

Romero was initially inspired to speak out against oppression of the Chinese people in 2001, Thomas said, after the International Olympics Committee announced that China would host the 2008 Summer Games.
...
While reports allege that Romero skipped out on paying for the hotel rooms, Thomas said Romero pre-booked four rooms in Beijing.

Romero, who is also director of ChinaAid's Los Angeles office, said in an e-mail Thursday urging others to join him, "As a pastor, I must raise my voice to injustice; as a professor of Philosophy, I know the ethical thing to do; and as the Director of China Aid Los Angeles I would be negligent of my duties to let this moment pass in silence."
Quoting from Micah 6.8 in the Bible, Romero said that he wanted the action to "remind China's Vice President Xi, US Vice President Biden, Governor Brown and Mayor Villaraigosa that we are...'To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with (our) God.'"
He also prepared a formal statement, which is below.
Romero, pastor of the Hacienda Christian Fellowship, in 2008 had traveled to Beijing during the Olympic Games where he staged dramatic protests in Beijing hotel rooms highlighting China's human rights record.
