In a grand gesture of solidarity, the everyday people of china that seeks freedom of information are being provided with computer programs to break the strangle hold by their communist government.
An international group of Internet professionals, The Global Internet Consortium (GIFC)
has offered journalists, tourists and citizens of China a package of free tools to circumvent the oppressive censorship rules laid down by the communist Chinese government.
Often referred to as the Great Firewall of China, the GIFC is providing tools to break through the Berlin Wall of free access to information
has offered journalists, tourists and citizens of China a package of free tools to circumvent the oppressive censorship rules laid down by the communist Chinese government.
Often referred to as the Great Firewall of China, the GIFC is providing tools to break through the Berlin Wall of free access to information by an inquisitive and educated population.
Just as the Berlin Wall once fell and East Germans came together to demand their freedom, we too, will give closed societies the technology to take down the Great Firewall of China that separates them from the rest of the world.”
The GIFC claim that over one million Chinese already use their tools to escape the shackles of censorship.
One must beg the question, how many citizens of previous Olympics had to resort to this level of subterfuge in order to find the truth? Australia, did you censor your news? How about Japan and the USA, did you censor your citizens when you hosted the Games? The list goes on.
Do the Communist leaders of China have any idea that the eyes of the world have placed them under the most powerful microscope they have ever experienced? Do they care?
The grand history and culture of a great people is once again being trampled into shame by a tyranny of a Communist regime backed by a one million plus army of zealots.
Where will it stop?
