China government's undesired websites unveiled

Google’s row with China over Internet freedom has
aroused an universal concern for its
controversial mechanism of information
censorship. Many cannot help but wonder what is
China’s rationale underlying Internet censorship?
And what kind of websites are forbidden?

Recently, Phoenix Weekly stationed in Beijing
published a "confidential blacklist," revealing a
series of unwelcome websites -- KMT is surprisingly included in the list.

Websites calling for separatism are the main
targets for China -- including Tibetan Youth
Congress, International Tibetan Separatist
Movement, and Students for a Free Tibet. Taiwan’s
opposition DPP as well as its related websites
whose appeals always run counter to the China
government are unsurprisingly included in the list.

Overseas Chinese websites are also under China’s
control: BBC Chinese, the New York Times,
Washington Post, Apple Daily, CNN, China Affairs,
Open Magazine, New Magazine, Central News Agency,
China Times, the Wall Street Journal and Boxun Network.

Religious websites in favor of Uighur freedom,
human rights and Falun Dafa are also screened by China’s censorship mechanism.
