Tech firms accused for aiding Chinese oppression

Posted on Thursday, February 02 2006 @ 01:26:56 CET by

Leaders of the U.S. Congress and human right advocates sharply attacked technology firms, including Cisco, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, for helping China's effort to censor the Internet and punish dissidents.
U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos, a California Democrat and the founding chairman of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, said the companies declined to attend a briefing, held Wednesday, to analyze the role of U.S. business in Chinese Internet censorship.

Lantos said the U.S. firms have joined in "China's efforts to restrict the flow of information and to punish people who have the courage and determination" to fight for democracy and freedom.

"They caved in to Beijing's demands for the sake of profits," Lantos said. "These massively successful high tech companies...should be ashamed."
