Irrepressible Info

If you look on my sidebar you'll see a little box with the title "Irrepressible Info" which keeps flashing up little snippets of information. Various regimes around the world are going out of their way to attempt to censor the access of their citizens to information on the net. We're not talking crappy cartoons attacking peoples religion here, it's life and death stuff in a lot of cases. The code supplies a fragment of a story in a variety of languages and if you click on it you'll be taken to a place where you can read the story in full. It's a way of trying to circumvent the controls placed on information by repressive governments.

I picked up on this from Yorkshire Soul who is always on the ball where these kind of things are concerned.
