“The Architects That Undermine China’s Firewall”

Sound of Hope Radio Network: Over the past decade of China’s communist regime filtering the Internet, a handful of anticensorship software called fan qiang (literally meaning “climb over a wall”) has successfully broken through the Internet blockade.

The best known of these are the “Five Knights”: FreeGate, UltraSurf, GardenNetwork, GPass and FirePhoenix, which have all been developed by overseas Falun Gong practitioners. Users in China told Sound of Hope Radio (SOH) that the “Five Knights” have become the essential tools for many in China. They say the firewall becomes almost nonexistent when using the “Five Knights.”

Li Fengzhi, a former Chinese Intelligence officer of China’s Bureau of State Security (BSS), said “The ‘Five Knights’ developed by Falun Gong practitioners have made a contribution far greater than just serving Falun Gong practitioners. No matter whether it is Chinese civil rights activists or Chinese officials who are not privileged enough to enjoy uncontrolled Internet services, their first thought when browsing the Internet is using fan qiang.”
