Reporters without Borders' online demonstration

Sören Kittel writes about an initiative by the Reporters without Borders organisation, which calls for people to join an Internet demonstration on its homepage today: "The protest is aimed against global Internet censorship in countries like China, Cuba, Egypt and Tunisia. With just a few mouse clicks you can design an online figure which you then place on a virtual surface. And to add to the symbolic character of this simple initiative, places like Tiananmen Square in Beijing or Revolution Square in Havana provide the virtual backdrop. Is this really a good way to get through to states that already censor their internet anyway? ... It remains a battle with the wrong weapons. In the worst case, governments will recognise the practical side of online protest and forbid all other kinds of freedom of expression."
