“Why not?” you ask. Simple. The powers that be don’t want you to:

China blocks websites ahead of Tiananmen anniversary

“Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the blockage of a dozen websites such as Twitter, YouTube, Bing, Flickr, Opera, Live, WordPress and Blogger in China,” the media rights group said in a statement.

“The Chinese government stops at nothing to silence what happened 20 years ago in Tiananmen Square,” it said. “By blocking access to a dozen websites used daily by millions of Chinese citizens, the authorities have opted for censorship at any price rather than accept a debate about this event.”

There is an easy way to make your own protest about this. Simply go to your local library and ask for the following book, then apply what you read.
