China Dissidents Eye Uncertain Post-Olympics Landscape

From AFP:

Despite hopes the Olympics would improve human rights, China’s crackdown on before and during the Games has likely set the stage for a lasting period of even tighter controls, government critics say.

Beijing-based AIDS campaigner Wan Yanhai is back at work following a government-imposed shutdown of his activities during the recent Summer Olympics, but he’s treading carefully.

He said police have tailed him recently and the government last month applied new pressure with a surprise tax probe of his Aizhixing Institute, which advocates for the rights of AIDS victims, a touchy subject in China.

“With the Olympics over, it looks like they have even more time to give us trouble,” Wan told AFP.
