BEIJING — Authorities rounded up dozens of dissidents and cracked down
on calls for a "Jasmine Revolution," which urged demonstrations in
more than a dozen Chinese cities Sunday apparently modeled after the
wave of pro-democracy protests sweeping the Middle East.
The source of the call was not known and many activists seemed not to
know what to make of it, even as they spread the word. They said they
were unaware of any known group being involved in the request for
citizens to gather in 13 cities and shout, "We want food, we want
work, we want housing, we want fairness."
