Anti-Spitting Campaign To Clean Up Beijing's Image
"Despite Officer He's blue uniform with silver epaulets, he is not a policeman or even a security guard. As a member of Beijing's anti-spitting team, he is on the look-out for offenders. "If we catch people spitting we fine them 50 Yuan and make them clean it up," he said. The fine is about $6 - more than half a week's income for many people here. But China's anti-spitting campaign is not just about cleaning up the streets and fighting SARS, it is about image."
