Defeating Censorship: Alternate Wikileaks Links

Reposted from Mike Flugennock:

“It’s often been said, ever since the days of Usenet and Tiananmen Square, that the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it. As it was in those bygone days, so it is today, as the US State pressures Wikileaks’ “cloud” provider and DNS service to take steps in an attempt to silence dissent.

The problem is — at least, if you’re the US State, it’s a problem — Wikileaks can still be reached on the Web via any number of alternate links, such as through its numeric ‘dotted quad’ IP addresses here and here. It can also be reached through its alternate domains in Switzerland and the Netherlands.

I’d like to encourage everyone reading this to follow that grand old Web censorship-defeating tradition of ‘mirroring’ and passing alternate links around, and post these links to your blog or Web site:

Tough luck, Barack. Better luck next time, Hillary.

    I enjoy reading other people’s views on Wikileaks and especially, censorship. If you have a moment read my article on censorship and feel free to comment:

    I’m writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link: Would be great if you would encourage others to do the survey also.
