Chinese Government Expands Censorship to America

China has been in the news a lot lately. As she prepares to host the summer 2008 Olympics many are decrying the government's infringements on human rights and their involvement in Darfur, Sudan, Africa.

Today the Chinese government is angry with CNN for calling its government as a "bunch of goons and thugs." China refused to accept this apology. Ummm, freedom of speech and freedom of the press?? It's obvious those are big no-nos in China if their government is trying to stop CNN from its thoughts on China. Citizens in China are censored from CNN anyway.

Nice.

In the mean time, freedoms of speech and press are going to live on in America, thank you.

Sign A Petition!
Reporters Without Borders has been outspoken about China's repressiveness in media (and otherwise). The activist group has a petition to world leaders to boycott the summer 2008 Olympics which can be signed here. They are working hard to make sure Olympic sponsors measure up to human rights expectations.

Fifteen thousand have already signed the petition at Care2.com, criticizing China for discriminating against Tibetans and withholding health care and education from them.

Over 1 million have signed this petition to the Chinese government against their repression of Tibet. That's 1,649,163 signatures!

Hooray for freedom of expression.
