Foreign Correspondents' Clubs in China Jointly Express Extreme Concern Over Abuse of Journalists

The Foreign Correspondents' Club of China, the Shanghai Foreign Correspondents' Club, and the Foreign Correspondents' Club, Hong Kong, are extremely concerned by a number of recent incidents in which international journalists have been threatened, harassed and even beaten while gathering news in China:
 
   On July 28th, a Shanghai based journalist from Japan's Asahi Shimbun was beaten by police in Nantong while covering a demonstration.  His equipment, worth several thousand dollars, was taken and has not been returned.
   On August 10th a reporter for Hong Kong's Asia Television was assaulted by plain clothes police outside a courthouse in Hefei as he filmed members of the public being arrested.
   On August 11th, in Henan province a television crew from ARD German television was attacked by a mob, accused of being spies and forcibly detained for 9 hours at a chemical factory before police escorted them to their vehicles.
   On August 13th two reporters from Poland and the United States reporting in Ordos were followed and intimidated by three cars and at least eight individuals in the middle of the night.
 
The FCCC, Shanghai FCC, and the FCC Hong Kong are alarmed by the nature and frequency of these incidents and the clear risk of serious physical harm to journalists merely carrying out their professional duties in China.
We are particularly concerned that a number of these incidents have involved members of the official security forces and associated elements.
We call on the authorities at all levels to ensure that journalists are protected from violence and intimidation.

Howdy! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin
that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Hi there, I believe your blog may be having browser compatibility issues.
Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
however, when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.

I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Apart from that, wonderful site!
