2008 Beijing Olympic Games
Posted by Dror Poleg on Monday, December 17, 2007 at 9:44 AM
The campaign consists of 10 signs, each featuring an introductory call to “Welcome the Olympics, Study the legislation of the 10 dos and don’ts” (迎奥运 学法律 十要十不要) followed by instructive duos such as “Respect Olympic Intellectual Property / Don’t trade in counterfeit goods”, “Save the beauty of the city and its surroundings / Don’t spit anywhere”, and – naturally – “Promote the awareness of the Olympic regulations / Don’t break the law with disregard to the broader impact ”.
The campaign, published by the Local Judicial Authorities (区司法局), is the largest the city has seen since last year’s “Safari” campaign to welcome delegates of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).
