Ciro Santilli 新疆改造中心 六四事件 法轮功
The Chinese characters on my username and profile picture are censored by the Chinese government:
- Profile picture: satirical photoshopped picture of China's president that got artist Dai Jianyong arrested
- 新疆改造中心: Xinjiang re-education camps https://apnews.com/6e151296fb194f85ba69a8babd972e4b
- 六四事件: Tiananmen square protests of 1989
- 法轮功: Falun Gong, 70M follower religion banned in 1999. Christians also persecuted. I'm agnostic. Gay rights? No minority is safe.
Censorship circumvention: https://cc.greatfire.org/en
Why I'm doing this:
- spark: in March 2015 my girlfriend's mother was kept 15 days in jail for doing Falun Gong.
- fuel: censorship aversion
- increase the cost of censorship. Using the Great Firewall GFW to block political keywords? Then lose money with worse IT. If you know better words tell me. Good word lists.
- promote freedom of speech, religion and politics
- meet more Chinese to better understand China. Contact me on Twitter or Weibo or GitHub. Public contact preferred, even if anonymous. Read the FAQ first. If you really need privacy, ciro.santilli.contact [at] gmail.com
I am against violence. I love China.
Can I do this?
But not in China :-(
