Qiu Xin: China curbs civil society groups

From Asia Times:

Much has been made of signs that Chinese President Hu Jintao’s leadership of the Communist Party, the government and the armed forces would allow non-governmental organizations () to flourish, as the party would realize that it needed to rely on civil-society groups.

But on March 21, Chinese authorities ordered that all NGOs registered with industrial and commercial administrative bureaus must report promptly to relevant civil affairs bureaus for review and approval. The move is widely regarded as another measure to tighten the grip over public opinion following Beijing’s gag on bulletin board systems (BBS) run by universities and the press.
