    FCCC Urges Lifting Of Internet Controls

    The Chinese government’s controls on the internet are contrary to the free reporting environment promised by the hosts and contradict International Olympic Commission assurances that the press will be able to operate as at previous Games.

    Thousands of visiting journalists will now get to experience the censorship that reporters and other internet users in China have to put up with every day.

    The FCCC believes China should lift controls on the web in line with the standards of openness expected of an Olympic host.
