Another lesson in the futility of censorship

Reporters Without Borders is beginning a program of mirroring websites to ensure online journalism is not strangled.

RSF creates mirror sites to combat censorship

“Filtering, denial of service attacks, withdrawal of content – censors use many different methods to silence news websites,” said RSF. “In addition to drawing attention to these acts of censorship and providing the victims with legal, material and financial help, [RSF] has now decided to provide them with technical assistance as well.”

Bottom line: Information always finds a way around the censors.
