Experts Discuss the Internet and the End of Dictatorship
Alan Huang, an expert with the Global Internet Freedom Consortium (GIFC), said, "The mission of GIFC is to use technology to expose the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and to promote freedom of the Internet. The anti-censorship software developed by Falun Gong practitioners is popular worldwide. It is the most widely used and the most powerful for breaking the censorship among all anti-censorship software. The software is used by the netizens in mainland China. There are one million clicks from China, two million page views, and more than one million netizens from China breaking the CCP’s firewall every day."
