I protest [insert permit # here]

July 24, 2008 08:00 – 08:00

The USA Today reported that the Chinese government will permit public protests during the Olympics, but only in three specially-designated city parks. The catch? Protesters will also need to apply for and be given permits. Chinese activists say it’s not terribly likely that the government will actually grant permits for anything that is even remotely controversial.

So, I guess all we’ll see are people protesting the overuse of MSG in Chinese food, or demanding that George W. Bush and Dick H. Cheney be prosecuted as war criminals.

Like the paper said… nothing remotely controversial.
