“In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order, but the phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time, and the pure essences of heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon, all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation, and it became magically fertile. That first egg was named ‘Thought’… Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch; from it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!”

Be that as it may, Irrepressible.Info Is a new freedom of speech campaign by Amnesty International to oppose any type of censorship on the internet, since this is just one more tool that oppressive regimes are using to control and police their populations. Big internet companies like MSft and google are already complying with Chinese demands for censorship in return for access to the markets.

Information wants to be free and the internet is supposed to route around censorship, but this will only happen if there is strong and unstoppable grassroots support for the principle of online freedom of speech. Support the amnesty campaign by signing their petition and by educating yourself about the issues.

There is also a little script you can add to your own webpage that hosts some content currently being censored somewhere in the world. YOu can see it action on down and to the right. >>> VVV
