Google and Microsoft Aiding China's Repressive Policies

Thank you for your recent action to demand the immediate release of Shi Tao and the end of censorship by the US Internet giant, Yahoo. Faced with growing public pressure, Yahoo has heard our call - however we still have a long road ahead to ensure that Yahoo fully addresses our demands.

Unfortunately, other US Internet companies like Google and Microsoft have also been assisting the repressive Chinese Government in its effort to limit the rights of their citizens. Amnesty International is concerned about the ways these companies are aiding violations of freedom to information and expression, by actively censoring content on topics such as human rights, political reform, Tiananmen Square and democracy, among others.

Today is Google's annual shareholder meeting and Tony Cruz, AIUSA's Corporate Action Network Coordinator for California, will be there to let the company know that Amnesty International will not stand by and let them violate human rights. Today also marks the start of a global call to action - across the world we are asking concerned citizens and Internet users to send an urgent message, by email, fax, or phone, to demand an end to these abuses.

Take action online! Visit our internet censorship action page // to get the full story about what Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are doing in China and find out why their claim that they are only following the law is a weak excuse for abusing human rights in pursuit of profit.

There are several ways you can act. Simply click to email our prepared online letter, or print off a copy and fax it to the number provided. Companies will often work fast to block mass emails from organizations like Amnesty, so it's important to try a variety of avenues. If you are a customer of Google or Microsoft, we recommend also contacting their user support lines, or filling out a complaint form through their website. All of the information you need to do this can be found on our action page.

If you have questions about internet censorship or any of the issues CAN works on, feel free to contact us anytime at

In solidarity,
