OLY-2008-CHINA-RIGHTS-GRANNIES

79-year-old grandmother Wu Dianyuan (L) and her friend Wang Xiuying, 77, talk to journalists at Wu's home in Beijing on August 22, 2008. The two Beijing grandmothers remained defiant and in good spirits despite being sentenced to one year of reeducation though labour for applying to protest during the Olympics. Wu Dianyuan and Wang Xiuying said they had not received compensation after their homes were demolished by the city government seven years ago and were simply fighting for their rights.
