Chinese Boycott Carrefour

BEIJING — Some Chinese citizens, angry over foreign criticism of their country’s policies in Tibet, are calling for boycotts of at least two European retailers for purportedly supporting the Dalai Lama, the latest sign of growing tension between China and the West ahead of the Olympics.

Internet users in China — it is unclear how many — have been using instant-messaging services, blogs and bulletin boards to spread a call for Chinese consumers at home and abroad to boycott French supermarket operator Carrefour SA and cosmetics retailer the Body Shop, owned by L’Oréal SA.
