Red Song Turned Green?

The news of Bo Xilai being 'sacked' by Beijing was released on 15th March, and Chongqing officials setup this green board in the famous Chongqing square saying: no one is allowed to dance and sing in this park at anytime, due to noise that may affect public health and good rest.

The central park of Chongqing was one of the main spots where people were ordered by Bo Xilai to sing and dance red (Maoist) songs since March last year. People have gathered that to watch song and dance every night since last year.

One blogger says: Only last week, TV news reported a teacher sang a red song that reduced her cancer pain, now we are forced not to sing.

Another blogger: we citizens were suddenly forced to sing, now suddenly forced not to sing; When will we able to have a proper ticket and vote for ourselves, and to decide what we want to do?
