CITIZENS IN CHINA ARE DESPERATE TO ACCESS ACCURATE INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET THAT IS NOT CENSORED BY CHINA’S COMMUNIST PARTY.
China’s persecution of religious groups and the ensuing cover up both rely on its strict internet censorship, whether the targeted group is Falun Gong, Christians, Uyghurs, or Tibetans. They are locked in an internet prison.
The Chinese government’s “Great Firewall” is actively censoring the free flow of information on the internet. The messages of brave protestors standing for freedom in Hong Kong cannot reach mainland Chinese citizens who are locked in a virtual prison of internet censorship. Without quick, decisive action to tear down the censorship wall, these same violations will likely dismantle the religious freedom Hong Kong has long possessed.
Several US technology developers have a long history of successfully circumventing firewalls in China and other countries. It is alarming that since 2017 a reduction in US government funding has resulted in these same developers having 70% less capacity to operate servers that run firewall circumvention tools.
21Wilberforce asks you to sign a petition that pleads for the quickest and most effective way to counter the current encroachment on basic rights… rapidly implement a strategy for US government funding firewall circumvention tools. Millions of people in China are desperately seeking accurate information through uncensored access to the internet. Please sign this petition.
