China Crackdown

The Chinese Human Rights Defenders group has claimed today that China is cracking down on dissent, in the run-up to the 2008 Olympics, by persecuting and harassing human rights activists.

The Chinese Human Rights Defenders group said that the situation deteriorated last year, with activists increasingly arrested and intimidated.


"The government appears determined to stamp out any sign of discontent and dissent so as to present a happy facade of social stability and social harmony to the world as the 2008 Summer Olympics draws closer."
