Text of G-G's Statement on Chinese Censorship

We have been made aware that the Communist Government of Mainland China has again acted against the liberty of its people by blocking access to the Chinese version of WikiNews.

The free content news portal contains news stories related to the situation in Tibet, the Republic of China, and other news those in power in Mainland China wish to suppress.

We call upon the leadership in Mainland China to restore access to WikiNews. These attempts to control the media are not in the international interests of the “Peoples Republic”, and can bring nothing but reproach upon the leadership in the government of mainland China.

We call upon those in authority to work towards addressing the issues presented in the news by acting in ways that do not oppress the people under their government's authority, rather than continuing to pretend that by blocking the news sources that they can 'make the trouble go away'.

The Government of the Dominion of British West Florida remains committed to a free and sovereign Kingdom of Tibet, and mutual recognition among the PRC and the RoC.

Bo Register, Marquess of Mobile,
Baron Von Servers of Fayette,
Lord of St. George, GSB

Her Majesty's Governor-General in and for
the Dominion of British West Florida
