Glutter: CHINA HAS FURTHER CURBED FREE SPEECH AMONG ITS CITIZENS


Glutter:

There had been questions asked all day as to whether there were some technical problems in people being able to access Typepad sites in China. Typepad is a bloggers resource similar to Blogger which I use. Well it appears that the Chinese Government has added Typepad to their extensive list of "Forbidden Sites" This follows the temporary closing down of China based web blog servers in the last week or so.

Over at Glutter the blogmaster has asked that all bloggers post a note on their Blogs protesting this further censorship of the Internet, Well here's mine.

To the Chinese Government

"You pass an amendment acknowledging Human Rights in your constitution and before the ink is even dry you violate one of the cornerstones of Human Rights: The right to free speech.

When will you learn"
