Internet repression: Reporters Without Borders' plea falls on deaf ears
Reporter Without Borders
To date, not one of the chief executive officers of the companies contacted have deigned to reply. The international press freedom organisation therefore calls on the media to challenge the CEOs listed below to explain their failure to respond
Reporters Without Borders chose 14 European, North American, Japanese and South Korean firms with business links to China in the Internet sector. Some of them even directly involved with Chinese government repression, by selling them surveillance equipment. Others simply closed their eyes to what was going on because of their business interests. All of them should feel responsible, it said, for the plight of China's embattled Internet-users.
The organisation also publishes a monthly Internet Repression report that lists violations of freedom of expression on the Net in China.
List of CEOs contacted:
- John Chambers, Cisco
December's monthly repression report can be found on:
