Press Conference at 11am on Monday 28 April 2008

With three months to go before the opening of the Beijing Olympics, the fight to defend human rights must go on.

The Olympic torch relay has been the scene of demonstrations worldwide. Nevertheless, Chinese authorities have remained deaf to appeals from the international community to release dissidents and continue to ban the foreign press from entering Tibet. Reporters Without Borders is planning events to raise the awareness of political figures, sponsors of the Olympic Games, journalists and sports competitors about the state of human rights within China.

And invites you to attend a press conference:

At 11am on Monday 28 April 2008 At the Press Club 10 rue Jean Goujon 75008 Paris

Robert Ménard will present the various options chosen by the organisation to continue its campaign and to try to secure the release of dissidents in China.

In the presence of personalities who have committed themselves to backing our campaign: Florence Aubenas, journalist Jean-Jacques Beineix, film-maker Robert Poirier, technical director of the French athletics team from 2001 to 2005 Nicola Sirkis, singer with the group Indochine

Since the number of places may be limited, we invite you to confirm your attendance before 24 April by sending an email to
