As an expat in China, I’m used to living without Youtube, Facebook and Twitter (all are blocked here).
But I hate the thought of losing Google – my homepage and a site I use almost daily.

However, I would GLADLY sacrifice access to Google if it means making a stand against this CONTEMPTUOUS regime!
The Chinese Communist Party FEARS Google (despite being heavily censored) because it provides too much access to information and freedom of thought.
Google has tolerated Chinese censorship until now, but the last straw came when China hackers recently “cyber-attacked” the e-mail acounts of human rights activists.
