Well-directed “democracies”

Originally, this event focused on China and its laws on Internet control. In particular, it is worth noting the experience of Google with a search for Tien-an-Men: the answers given by the search engine in the USA and Europe were about the events of 1989, the responses given by the same engine China spoke only of tourism.

Many Internet users are behind bars for using their right to freedom of expression on the web. China remains the largest prison for online journalists and bloggers.

To denounce censorship by governments and demand more freedoms on the Internet, Reporters without Borders has called to express in nine countries enemies of the Net: Burma, China, North Korea, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, Tunisia, Turkmenistan and Vietnam. Unfortunately a non exhaustive list.
