"With less than a year to go before the Beijing Olympics, there is an urgent need for the government to stop blocking thousands of websites, censoring online news, and imprisoning internet activists."
An urgent need? No, actually, there's no such thing. What the hell is this guy on about? Or else, what? His little human rights organization will topple the Chinese government? Or convince the olympic organizers to go elsewhere? Be serious.
Little dogs yapping at the heels of the real world like this do nothing to add to the credibility of groups which work for free expression. I would gladly die to protect my right to say what I please, when I please, in my own country, but to just blurt out that there's an "urgent need" for the oppressors to magically turn tail and run is pathetic.
