Olympics protests can't harm 'national interests'

Those who wish to protest in Beijing during the Summer Olympics will have to avoid harming "national interests," says the Games' security boss.

Liu Shaowu set out the rules in a statement posted Saturday on the official Olympics news website.

"Assembling to march and protest is a citizen's right. But it must be stressed that when exercising this right, citizens must respect and not harm others' freedoms and rights and must not harm national, social and collective interests," Liu said in the statement.

Chinese citizens must apply in writing with the police five days in advance.

Foreign dissident must submit an application to border authorities.

China's authoritarian Communist government has always put an emphasis on maintaining social order versus allowing dissent. But it has apparently agreed to allow some protest at the Beijing Games, which open Friday, to blunt criticism.

The three protest parks it has opened are several kilometres away from the main Olympic venue.

Although it has allowed some space for officially-sanctioned protests, China has also tightened visa requirements that have prevented representatives of groups like the Committee to Protect Journalists from coming to Beijing.

China and the International Olympic Committee have come under fire for China's controls on what websites foreign journalists can access.

IOC President Jacques Rogge denied Saturday that any deal had been reached with Chinese authorities to allow such controls, which are fully in place for China's general population.

Steve Chao, CTV's Beijing bureau chief, told Newsnet on Sunday that many Chinese dissidents and journalists have been rounded up and jailed ahead of the Games.

One Chinese woman who came to Beijing to apply to protest and found herself picked up by police and returned to her home province, he said.

But domestically, "there is a great deal of national pride here at the very fact that China has been given a chance to host this world event, and that feeling is overshadowing other concerns," he said.

The Chinese government's line is that it has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in just a few decades and that people have more freedom that at any point in China's recent history, he said.

China can't control dissent everywhere, however.

Protesters held small rallies in the Philippines and Japan criticizing China's human rights record.

The federal government has been largely silent about human rights controversies surrounding the Beijing Games.

On July 14, Foreign Affairs Minister David Emerson put out a news release announcing his attendance at the Games from Aug. 7 to 11, but didn't say anything about those wider issues.

"I've believed for a long time ... that you've got to engage China," Emerson told CTV's Question Period on Sunday.

"We've got issues around human rights, rule of law and those kinds of issues. I've got to find a way to ensure that we can continue to promote those issues with greatest effect. Although we have to engage, we have to manage the relationship, and that's certainly going to be a top priority for me."

Emerson said he anticipated many informal meetings and hoped to meet with his Chinese counterpart while in Beijing.
