Censored material posted on Absolvitor

I came across this on another blog and really liked the idea.

IRREPRESSIBLE.INFO is an Amnesty International campaign, which highlights Internet censorship across the globe.

From the site:

“Chat rooms monitored. Blogs deleted. Websites blocked. Search engines restricted. People imprisoned for simply posting and sharing information.

“The Internet is a new frontier in the struggle for human rights. Governments – with the help of some of the biggest IT companies in the world – are cracking down on freedom of expression.”

As you may have noticed at the foot of the right hand column, the site allows you to post a widget on your own website, which displays a random selection of snippets from websites and blogs which have been censored somewhere. The campaign site invites you to “undermine unwarranted censorship by publishing censored material from our database directly onto your site“. Count me in!

You’ll have to excuse me while I go and lie down for a bit … I suddenly feel quite … seditious (and I think I like it).
