A peaceful rally in Santa Monica Sunday challenged the Beijing Olympics. Nearly 150 people protested the Asian nation's crackdowns on Tibet.

A permit was issued for the rally, which coincided with protests in the UK, where protesters attempted to extinguish the Olympic torch as it was carried through the streets of London.

The torch will arrive in San Francisco on Wednesday.
