No One Wants To Protest Claims China!

Beijing authorities insist they have received 77 applications from people wishing to stage demonstrations but actually no one went through with a protest. For some strange reason voices of opposition who have held up banners or challenged Chinese authorities do not wish to avail themselves of an opportunity to legally stage a protest. Of course, several people who did come forth to apply for an application were imprisoned or sent on a trip to some distant locale in order to avoid any problem that might ensue from staging a demonstration in Beijing.

The farce of the so-called areas for official protest were never meant to be anything other than a means of identifying those who wanted to protest so their names could be recorded.
