    Have your say: China

    Several prominent activists have been taken into custody or placed under police watch after a call went out on the internet for protests this weekend.

    People have been encouraged to gather at 2pm on Sunday at locations in cities across the country.

    Liu Fenggang, a longtime pro-democracy organiser who has served multiple prison terms, told Sky News that several plain-clothes police officers had been posted outside his home since late January when protests began in Egypt.

    "They look at these events overseas, and they think it could happen here," he said. Fellow dissident Xu Yongghai said two men had been sitting outside his door last Sunday.

    "Wherever I go, they follow me, even to buy vegetables," he said. "I asked them why, and they said they didn't know and were just following orders."

    The protests that have swept across the Arab world have been reported by China's state-controlled media. But the country's internet censors have been quick to delete online comment in support of the demonstrators.

    Three people have been detained on charges of "inciting subversion of state power" after posting information about the planned protests online, according to one Hong Kong-based human rights group.

    Publicly, however, the authorities have played down the possibility that Chinese people may be inspired by movements in Tunisia and Egypt that have successfully brought down dictatorships.

    The possibility of a similar turn of events in China is "ridiculous and unrealistic" according to one senior official quoted by Xinhua, the state-run news wire.

    China Squashes Attempted Tunisia-Style Revolt

    Have your say: China

    Messages calling for a "Jasmine Revolution" - the name given to the Tunisian uprising which toppled President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali - had been circulated on the internet ahead of protests in 13 cities across the country.

    But as the time for the protest approached in Beijing, scores of police descended on the designated area in Wanfujing, an upmarket shopping district.

    Side streets were lined with security forces, police vehicles, Swat police and at least 100 uniformed personnel, while dozens of plain-clothed officers also looked on, conspicuously wearing identical coats.

    In the end there were very few signs of demonstrations beyond sporadic scuffles between police and several individuals. The messages calling for democracy had been circulated on, a Chinese-language microblog based in the US.

    Anonymous battle cries also circulated with the hashtag #cn220, inviting China's disenfranchised to "seek freedom, democracy and political reform to end one-party rule".

    Another post instructed protesters to shout slogans such as "We want justice", "long live freedom" and "long live democracy".
    Some crowds did gather in Wanfujing, but only through curiosity after seeing a strong police presence.

    One taxi driver mused that a foreign dignitary or celebrity must have arrived in town.

    After approximately two hours, police began to retreat and China's so-called "Jasmine Revolution" fizzled out without a spark.
    The protest had lacked the determination, organisation and popular support which was seen in the Middle East.

    Whereas in Tunisia, unemployment and rising prices were key factors for toppling an unpopular regime, Chinese people largely support the current leadership.

    The Communist Party is credited with three decades of uninterrupted economic growth which has lifted millions out of poverty and secured it as the second largest economy in the world.

    But despite its successes, China also remains an autocracy, determined to stamp out any challenge to its one-party rule.

    During recent turmoil in the Middle East, Chinese authorities restricted media reports and heavily censored any related content online.

    Many political dissidents and well-known activists were also detained ahead of the planned demonstrations today, or had their mobile phones blocked.

    The call for protest had come at a particularly sensitive time in China - only two weeks ahead of the annual convention of China's rubber-stamp parliament, the National People's Congress.

    During the convention, a five-year plan will be decided to determine the country's political and economic course.

    Hakuna kurudi nyuma. Lini, wapi na nani atayefuata ni suala la kusubiri. Karibuni upepo utavuma kuelekea Afrika kusini ya Sahara. Imani yangu ni kuwa aking'oka Gadafi, wale walio na woga (kama Tanzania) watapata moyo zaidi na kuhisi hakuna lisilowezekana. KWELI TUNAWEZA!!!
