Media crackdowns: two years before Beijing Olympics(6)

Posted by Author on August 20, 2006

Reporters Without Borders, 7 August– (cont’d)

Two years to act

As a matter of urgency, the IOC, national Olympic committees, governments and journalists’ organisations should all start pressing the Chinese authorities for concrete progress. Reporters Without Borders proposes 10 urgent measures:

1. Release journalists and Internet users detained in China for exercising their right to information.

2. Repeal article 15 of the Foreign Correspondents Guide, which restricts the freedom of movement of foreign journalists.

3. Withdraw censorship measures from the draft law about the management of crisis situations.

4. Disband the Publicity Department (the former Propaganda Department), which exercises daily control over content in the Chinese press.

5. End the jamming of foreign radio stations.

6. End the blocking of thousands of news and information websites based abroad.

7. Suspend the “11 Commandments of the Internet,” which lead to content censorship and self-censorship on websites.

8. Scrap the blacklists of journalists and human rights activists who are banned from visiting China.

9. Withdraw the ban on Chinese TV stations using foreign news agency video footage without permission.

10. Legalize independent organisations of journalists and human rights activists.

In 2001, Reporters Without Borders launched www.boycottbeijing2008.net in 2001. (End)
