More Olympics 2008 hypocrisy

Two elderly women sentenced to year's labour over Olympics protest

"Chinese authorities have sentenced two women in their 70s to a year's 're-education through labour' after they applied to protest during the Olympic games, a relative said today. This week, officials said they had not approved a single permit for a demonstration, despite designating three parks as protest zones." (Guardian)
