    TV Crew Barred from Tiananmen

    LOCATION: Tiananmen Square
    TYPE OF INCIDENT: Barred from public space
    TOPIC: Tiananmen anniversary
    NATIONALITY/ORGANIZATION: TV Broadcaster

    DESCRIPTION: We went to Tiananmen Square and got through the cordon. After we set up our camera a policeman ran after us and told us we had to register at the Tiananmen office. We went to the office but it was closed. I could see that he wasn’t going to let us film, so we filmed across the road, and had the Square in the background.
