In this photo taken Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012, a Chinese man stands near a screen displaying the Chinese national flag colours and the word "Nation" near the Great Hall of the People where the Chinese Communist Party's 18th National Congress is scheduled to begin Nov. 8 in Beijing, China. Authorities want no more surprises as party leaders convene in the capital, and rights groups say the wide-ranging crackdown on critics bodes poorly for those who hope the incoming generation of leaders will loosen restrictions on activism.
