How Bloggers Can Fight Political Censorship

PARIS (Reuters) - A Paris-based media watchdog released a handbook on Thursday
to help cyber-dissidents and bloggers avoid political censorship in countries as
far apart as China, Iran, Vietnam and Cuba.

The guide, published by
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) with the backing of the French government,
identifies bloggers as the "new heralds of free expression" and offers advice on
how to set up a blog and run it anonymously.

"Bloggers are often the
only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or
under pressure," wrote Julien Pain, head of RSF's Internet Freedom Desk.

"Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the
government and sometimes courting arrest."
Alberta separatist bloggers are not at risk of arrest, but they are certainly displeasing the government.

Maybe it's time to make preparations?

You can find the guide (PDF) here.
