Internet dragnet: China busts 10k for online crimes — RT

Chinese police said they have made more than 10,000 arrests as part of a three-month crackdown against individuals suspected of various online crimes.

The arrests included members of over 600 gangs using the Internet to direct their operations, according to a report by China’s Xinhua news agency.

The crimes the alleged suspects are charged with include the distribution of pornography, illegal trade in weapons and wiretapping devices, forging and selling professional certificates and the illegal collection and sale of personal information, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security said Wednesday.

The crackdown resulted in some 3.2 million online messages deemed “harmful” being deleted. Police ordered 62 websites and online forums to remove inappropriate content, and issued sanctions against 30 ISPs for allowing users to bypass China’s notorious internet censorship firewall.

The Chinese government maintains the crackdown is necessary.

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
