Olympic Pirate Radio

Recommended Posts

If a dissident tree falls in an authoritarian forest, and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a sound? In the latest protest tied to the Beijing Olympics, Reporters Without Borders, the Paris-based press freedom group, says that it broadcast on FM radio in Beijing Friday morning a 20-minute call for greater human rights and an end to censorship. RSF (the group goes by its French initials) called the effort “the first non-state radio station to have broadcast in China since the Communist Party took power in 1949.” Some might quibble with calling a single 20-minute burst a radio station, but let’s be generous.
