From the BBC, Protests still unwelcome in Beijing:
China has set aside three parks during the Olympics, to allow people to demonstrate. But, as the BBC’s Michael Bristow finds out, the parks are empty and those who apply for permission to protest are even finding themselves arrested.
The BBC report is that nobody is showing up to protest and that people who apply to protest are being arrested. According to the report, in effect, the parks are a honey pot that serve more to catch protesters than to provide a safe location for their expression.
Are the parks being used for protests? Is this story on the radar for the Chinese in Beijing?
