Report on Beijing's Displaced

Click on the title above for a graphic depiction of Chinese petitioners in Beijing from all over China. The video is an in depth coverage of the displacement of Chinese citizens in Beijing who have been evicted from their homes for development associated with the Olympic games. Aiden Hartley is the journalist. Thanks to China Digital Times
for the link.

This film, "China's Olympic Lie" is well worth watching as it shows just how frustrated and enraged ordinary Chinese citizens are. Mr. Hartley manages to get footage of a "Black Jail," an unofficial facility where petitioners are illegally being held in violation of their citizen's rights.
