Organizer/AuthorTony Cruz
Yahoo! (YHOO) has cooperated with authorities in China in events which led to the detention of Shi Tao, a Chinese journalist. Mr. Shi was imprisoned solely for the legitimate exercise of his right to seek, receive and impart information, as guaranteed under Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Yahoo has continued to comply with the Chinese government in censoring material deemed "sensitive" such as "human rights" and "democracy". Amnesty International is asking Yahoo to end this practice of censorship which is clearly infringing on the rights of the people of China. We will stand at Yahoo protesting against this egregious role they are continuing to play in China.
