China beijing news censorship southern weekly

Police attempt to take away banners from protesters calling for greater media freedom outside the headquarters of Nanfang Media Group in Guangzhou on January 9, 2013. A Chinese weekly newspaper, Southern Weekly, at the center of rare public protests about government censorship will publish as usual on January 10, a senior reporter said, following reports of a deal to end the row. The row at the popular liberal paper, which had an article urging greater rights protection replaced with one praising the ruling communist party, has seen demonstrators mass outside its headquarters in the southern city of Guangzhou.
