The largest world prison

Reporters Without Borders’ Beijing 2008 campaign was released in the French newspaper Libération and on 'Reporters sans Frontières' website. Since China will be hosting the Olympic Games next August, Reporters without Borders rolled out a campaign asserting, "China is the largest world prison for freedom of expression defenders." Many celebrities who have endorsed RSF's campaign (French actress Carole Bouquet among a handful of other prominent figures) are being photographed by Jean-François Robert wearing the "Beijing 2008" T-shirt condemning China's stance vis-à-vis human rights issues. The Beijing 2008 campaign T-shirt is on sale for €25 or $30, and is not made in China, mind you, but got printed in France.
