Google Censorship

Students For A Free Tibet protest in front of Google headquarters in Mountain View, California on January 25. The picket signs they are holding that read, “Don’t Be Evil,” is Google’s motto. Google, the world’s largest search engine, has been criticized worldwide for its decision to censor politically sensitive topics such as the Tienanmen massacre, Tibet, Falun Gong, and human rights in its Chinese search service. Google explained such measures were inevitable in order to strengthen its position in China.
