Although Chinaâ€TMs government has pledged to revise its policies toward political dissidents, that promise remains largely unfulfilled. This program reveals egregious cases of political oppression occurring in recent years, countering the picture China painted of itself as it promoted the Beijing Olympics. Pushing back against bureaucracy and official stonewalling, the program examines the work of activist Hu Jia, his arrest and jail sentence, and the constant police harassment faced by his wife and lawyers. Numerous other cases are profiled while government apologists also appear—including Chinaâ€TMs Olympics Media Director and the head of Beijingâ€TMs Deng Xiaoping Thought Research Center.
