Anti-Censorship Tools Allow People To View Government-Blocked Sites
The Center for Rights in Action is working on a tool to help people view censored websites across the globe.
Online censorship is a big problem, especially in countries like China, Syria, Iran, Egypt and others. When the government can choose what content citizens can see, and when they can or can't post to social media, they infringe on their freedoms and keep them in the dark about current events and issues. While there are ways around these barriers and restrictions, like proxy servers, it requires above average knowledge of computers and users can be severely punished if caught. All of that may soon change, thanks to Center for Rights in Action, the main project of Internet rights non-profit Fight for the Future.
