Activists Warned on Olympic Protests

Date: June 26, 2008
Author: Howard W. French
QUOTE: The warning against dissent in Shanghai appears to be part of a broader national effort to avert protest by Chinese, particularly those known as petitioners, meaning those who seek the redress of grievances that run the gamut from land and environmental problems to corruption and political matters. One Shanghai petitioner said that he and others were detained on June 18 after a memorial service for an activist who died shortly after release from prison last year.
