Communism in China Conference


"Will Communism in China End Soon?" was a question given to an interesting panel today at UofT. The most interesting character present was Stockwell day. He argued that the mainstream press has failed people since they don't go into details about China's human rights abuses. This is coming from a man who rode a jet-ski to a press conference.

Nart Villeneuve from the Citizen Lab spoke about internet censorship. The best way he says for people living in China to bypass the "Great Firewall" is to know someone in another country who can route them to the blocked sites.

There are already people who do this in Toronto. The Citizen Lab at UofT, with the OpenNet Initiative ( a collaboration of a few universities), looks to help people circumvent internet filtration systems.

Today's event was put on by the China Research Association to find out about more events check their website. Today's speeches should be posted on the site in the near future and covered in the next Epoch Times, who sponsored the event.
