Censorship in China, Part III: The oppressed speak out

After looking at Yahoo's attempt at self-justification and seeing AOL get away with 600 hours free uncensored search, let's turn our attention to the other side of the medal: the people who have to live with it all.

Zhao Jing, also known by his pen name of Michael Anti, the blogger whose site was shut down by Microsoft after pressure from the Chinese authorities, had only one thing to say: "Actions speak louder than words. Nobody cares [about Yahoo's deflective statement], we just want real action."

Hear, hear. Let's hope the House Committee on International Relations figures out what kind of action to take.
