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.

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact." George Orwell
