Amnesty International launched an interesting compaign to foster freedom of expression online all over the world. From irrepressible.info:

Amnesty International, with the support of The Observer, is launching a campaign to show that online or offline the human voice and human rights are impossible to repress.
The online compaign includes the publishing of small samples of blocked content to show that information can’t really be stoped. Here is an example of bocked content:
“… security raid against activists in the current affairs, journalists and opposition members is increasing …”
