China internet censorship breakdown

The Taipei Times has done an interesting kind of break down of the various departments of censorship of China’s internet.

“When vicious inter-ethnic violence broke out in Urumqi last year, Chinese authorities flooded the city with security forces. But next came an unexpected step: They cut off Internet access across the vast northwestern region of Xinjiang. Controlling the information flow was as crucial as controlling the streets, it seemed. Eight months on, the net remains largely inaccessible in Xinjiang, though officials claim it will be restored. The small number of sites that were recently unblocked are heavily censored; only a severely restricted e-mail service is available.”
