Google gags free expression

Google censors the internet in China and yet still insists that it's 'helping to advance the cause of change.'

The first ever Internet Governance Forum meets in Athens tomorrow. Among the 90 countries present will be Egypt, Iran and Syria - all accused of restricting free expression on the web.

Amnesty will be there to scrutinise Google's filtering of search results in China.

Search for Tiananmen Square in and you get pictures of tanks, brutality and blood-covered protesters. Search in and you get fireworks.

'Do no evil,' says the Google motto.

Practice what you preach, says, a website dedicated to exposing restrictions of free speech in China.
