China newspaper journalists in rare strike

Help

Journalists at a major Chinese paper, Southern Weekly, have gone on strike in a rare protest against censorship.

The row was sparked last week when the paper's New Year message calling for reform was changed by propaganda officials.

Supporters of the paper gathered outside its office, some of the protesters carried banners that read: "We want press freedom, constitutionalism and democracy".
