(AP) More than a dozen Chinese dissidents have been questioned, followed or detained during U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's weekend visit to Beijing, fellow activists said Saturday.

The stepped-up controls come as international human rights groups expressed outrage over a statement by Clinton ahead of her Friday arrival that issues such as climate change, the world financial crisis and North Korea would likely take precedence over traditional U.S. concerns about human rights in her discussions.

The biggest issue I have is that if the new adminisrtation sets this tone so early on it will give not only China but many other countries the green light to continue to transgress human rights in favour of economy.

What they do not understand is that the populace will push back.

Eventualy.
