Crackdown on Protestors in China

Eileen McDevitt and Larrey Anderson
Breitbart is reporting that China is rounding up people who might have something (other than the Communist Party line) to say during Obama’s visit:
China has detained several dissidents and campaigners ahead of US President Barack Obama's much-anticipated first visit to the country, their relatives and close contacts told AFP Saturday.
Among the “detainees” is Qi Zhiyong.  He lost one of his legs in the Tiananmen protests of 1989. Zhiyong is apparently being held in a Beijing suburb.  In a written statement Zhiyong stated the intention of his planned protest this way:
"… to press him [Obama] to pay attention to human rights in China, people's livelihoods and the relatives of jailed people, as he comes only to talk about climate change."
Our president will spend the next few days in China. Obama will probably not be able to meet, or get a glance of, Qi Zhiyong.  

But Obama will do more than "talk about climate change” while in China. Obama will continue to practice his bowing. This time before Hu Jintao -- the “Paramount Leader of the People’s Republic of China.”
