Hands Off The Press

Yesterday about 700 protesters, including journalists, politicians and residents, marched on the Hong Kong office of the Chinese government carrying placards saying "reporting the news is not a crime".
They were reacting to Chinese police treatment in Urumqi of three Hong Kong reporters who said they were punched, kicked and tied up.
Journalists led the march in Hong Kong demanding an apology and investigation.
