BEIJING — Police in southwest China have barred activists from distributing leaflets about anti-government protests in Egypt and Tunisia, deeming the news too sensitive, one dissident said Wednesday.
Activists in Guizhou province tried to hand out information about the demonstrations over the weekend, but police told them this was an "unusual period" and gave them 3,000 yuan ($450) to stop, Chen Xi told AFP.

Harmony and face are important in asia the situation was handled in a manner that allowed both groups to maintain both without bloodshead or loss of life. China is a large country and working at change. But change does not happen overnight.edit on 9-2-2011 by Expat888 because: Gremlins.. And bit too much new years celebrating still..
