China Blind Lawyer Dissidents

  A woman protester who claims she wants to see blind lawyer Chen Guangcheng, recounts her grievances as a Chinese police officer questions her outside the hospital where Chen is recuperating in Beijing, Saturday, May 5, 2012. While it appears China will likely make a rare concession and allow activist Chen Guangcheng to leave China with his family, dissidents say the deal is not a sign of a broader easing of controls. Authorities might even tighten the screws on other prominent critics to prevent them from seeking similar offers ahead of a leadership handover during which stability is paramount.
