China ‘unblocks’ some web addresses

“In China, Internet access is fully open.” — Sun Weide, spokesman for the Beijing Olympic Games Organising Committee (BOGOC).

Riiight.

News today that China has unblocked some web addresses following a protest from the International Olympic Committee. It’s not clear whether these sites have been unblocked to everyone or only for the journalists reporting on the event.

Amnesty International, bbc.com/chinese, the Chinese Wikipedia and similar sites are reportedly among those unblocked, although CNN reports that some of these sites, while unblocked, were still “unavailable” at times.

China, stop the act already. And the IOC, well, you’re just a useless, shameful bunch of bastards who don’t dare to challenge BOGOC on this issue.
