    A plainclothes policeman (R) pushes a protester away after internet social networks called to join a "Jasmine Revolution" protest in front of a Mcdonalds store in central Beijing February 20, 2011. Chinese President Hu Jintao called on Saturday for stricter government management of the Internet while calls for gatherings inspired by uprisings in the Middle East spread on Chinese websites abroad. The messages have scant chance of inspiring protests in China whose one-party government has plenty of censorship controls in place and where most Chinese have difficulty gaining access to overseas websites because of a censorship "fire wall."
