He Says, They Say…

Posted by MyLaowai on Saturday, June 30, 2007

I find sometimes, that it’s helpful to put quotations into perspective:

In China, we don’t have software blocking Internet sites. Sometimes we have trouble accessing them. But that’s a different problem… I’m sure I don’t know why people say this kind of thing. We do not have restrictions at all… Some people say that there are journalists in China that have been arrested. We have hundreds of journalists in China, and some of them have legal problems. It has nothing to do with freedom of expression.

– Chinese Government Official

This is a list of notable websites blocked in the People’s Republic of China. This list includes websites that are specifically blocked in one or more regions of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) under the country’s policy of Internet censorship. Websites that are only blocked in particular institutions (e.g. universities) or are inaccessible because of packet filtering (and hence may be only partially or sporadically blocked) are not included in this list.

This list does not apply to the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau, which have their own legal systems.
