    TV Crew Barred from Tiananmen

    LOCATION: Tiananmen Square
    TYPE OF INCIDENT: Barred from public space
    TOPIC: Tiananmen anniversary
    NATIONALITY/ORGANIZATION: International Broadcaster

    DESCRIPTION: Our TV crew was stopped at security and not allowed to enter Tiananmen Square to film. We were told there was a new regulation. The crew asked to see it, but the authorities declined. When the crew asked if it could film the Square from across the street, security asked for the crew’s passports. One member wasn’t carrying a passport, so the crew was sent away.
