Censorship Peaceful Protest
So what is Censorship you might ask. Censorship is when in certain countries it is illegal to look up certain things or go on certain websites. In China we are a communist government and we are struggling with not being able to have the freedom to look you what we want or have privacy without worrying about being thrown in jail! We believe that we should have the freedom to look up what we want without having the thought of being thrown in jail or killed in the back of our minds.Even if you don't live in china but are chinese born than you are still at risk. My idea is that if we came up with a hashtag called #internetisnotathreat and post it everywhere on social media or anywhere you can more and more people will be aware of what is happening and what it is. And if more people know about the more we can do to fix it.

Great Firewall Of China
The great firewall of China is a very complicated filtering system that China uses. Access to the internet is provided by 8 different service providers. They also use keyword filtering. This is effective because if someone looks something up that the computer knows to block than they wont have any search results.
