You can protest in China if you apply for a permit to do so.

China says that those wishing to protest at the Beijing Games must apply five days beforehand. You can apply as long as you do not harm “national interests,” the security chief for the Olympic organizing committee said.

Accused of repressing dissent, China recently said it would "allow officially approved demonstrations to be held at three parks in the capital."

"CDC's first estimates from this system reveal that the HIV epidemic is — and has been — worse than previously known. Results indicate that approximately 56,300 new HIV infections occurred in the United States in 2006," the CDC said in a statement.
