China’s broken promise: PEN’s report

A one-year report card from PEN (the pdf is here) noted that seven months ago, the freedom of expression group called on the Chinese government to:

• release all writers and journalists currently imprisoned and stop detaining, harassing, and
censoring writers and journalists in China; 
• end Internet censorship and reform laws used to imprison writers and journalists and
suppress freedom of expression; and 
• abide by its pledge that “there will be no restrictions on media reporting and movement
of journalists up to and including the Olympic Games.” 
Said PEN:

“Seven months later, we are unable to report significant improvements in any of these areas.

“What we have witnessed instead has been a grinding and relentless campaign to jail or silence
prominent dissident voices….”
