Freedom Against Censorship Thailand (FACT) on web censorship and how to avoid it

4 02 2009

FACT reports on how Thailand’s Ministry of Information and Communication Technology has blocked at least 17,775 web pages and sites. FACT adds to this the blocking by the police, meaning that more than 50,000 web pages and sites are now blocked in Thailand. FACT reports that this blocking involves special attention to public web board discussions, tools for circumventiing the blocking, discussion regarding Thailand’s South and critical commentary reflection on the monarchy. FACT then announces what it says are “two new, easy, legal tools for circumventing Internet censorship.”

FACT’s blog on this topic, dated 4 January 2009, is at: “FACT releases free, legal circumvention tools”
