Reporters Without Borders New Chinese-website Goes Online
Dharamshala: The Paris-based press freedom watchdog, Reporters Without Borders (RSF)Wednesday (22 December) has launched a new version of its Chinese-language website www.rsf-chinese.org in order to provide better information to Chinese-speakers. Access to the site was blocked inside China soon after its launch in 2005 but it has been getting tens of thousands of readers each year.
According to an RSF press release, "The new version of the site has its press releases and reports about current press freedom issues, especially those that concern China, lots of information about the 2010 Nobel peace laureate, Liu Xiaobo, a frequently updated press review, photos that have not been published elsewhere, surprising interviews, and petitions for the release of journalists, bloggers and free speech defenders who are in prison in China."
