The Long March To Beijing

The group, Human Rights Watch, have asked the Chinese government to improve its human rights record before the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

A website, China Olympics Watch, is pressing for the end to censorship and for trade unions and other organisations to be legalised.

Human Rights Watch are hopeful that the IOC, and sponsors, of the Games will put pressure on the Chinese to improve its human rights record.

I think this will be a "long march".
