Gobierno chino rompe promesas para los Juegos Olímpicos

Parece ser que China no honrará sus promesas de mayor libertad - aunque aún asi fuera por solo 15 días, lo que duran los juegos en Beijing. Parece ser que al gobierno chino le gusta la libre circulación de mercancías, pero no la de ideas, pero ¿qué se puede esperar de la mayor dictadura sobre la faz de la Tierra?. Copio del NYT:

The Chinese authorities also remained resolute about their decision to maintain a firewall on the Internet and limit access for journalists covering the Olympics. Senior officials with the International Olympic Committee, or IOC, have said they were stunned to learn Wednesday that Beijing’s longstanding pledge to provide foreign reporters with unfettered access would not be honored.

Kevan Gosper, a former Olympic athlete from Australia and the chief of the IOC press commission in Beijing, said he had been assured that visiting journalists would have no limitations on their Internet use during the Games. But he said Wednesday that other IOC officials, whom he did not identify, had agreed to let some Web sites be blocked. Olympic organizers say they are trying to convince the government to reconsider its decision to limit access.
