    1. China and their IT Counterpart is Google(according to 2)

    2. cDc – Cult Dead Cow

    Google’s adheres to the Internet censorship policies of China,enforced by means of filters colloquially known as “The Great Firewall of China”. Google.cn search results are filtered so as not to bring up any results concerning the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, sites supporting the independence movements of Tibet and Taiwan or the Falun Gong movement, and other information perceived to be harmful to the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

    In protest…

    In early 2006, (2) launched the “Goolag” (a play on gulag, Soviet concentration camps) campaign in response to Google’s decision to comply with China’s Internet censorship policy and censor search results in the mainland-Chinese version of its search engine. The campaign consists primarily of the use of a parody of Google’s logo which reads “Goolag: Exporting censorship, one search at a time.” The group encouraged readers to make t-shirts and other merchandise and donate any proceeds from their sale to Human Rights in China.

    quoted from Wikipedia:
    in the late 1990s, the cDc claimed to work with a group of Chinese dissidents called “The Hong Kong Blondes.” The goal of the Hong Kong Blondes was to disrupt computer networks within the People’s Republic of China in order to allow Chinese citizens to access censored content online. The Hong Kong Blondes were, arguably, one of the first hacktivist groups. The cDc advised the group on strong encryption techniques, among other things.The cDc formally severed ties with the Hong Kong Blondes in December 1998.
    On January 7, 1999, the cDc joined with an international coalition of hackers to denounce a call to cyberwar against the governments of China and Iraq.

    (1) is Jiang Qing, Zhang Chunqiao, Yao Wenyuan and Wang Hongwen. These are the chinese rebellious anti-revolutionary “Gang of Four”, accused to be responsible for social chaos in china during last phases of Mao’s career.
    The Cult Dead Cow(2) labelled Cisco, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Google as the “Gang of Four” owing to their rebellious attitude of submitting to cesorship policies of Chinese government and lunched the GOOLAG campaign.


  15. Vijay Shankar
