In ChinaGold shieldAn Internet censorship system called Jindun is running and access to sites and information that the government considers harmful is restricted. In addition to Twitter, Facebook, etc., the target of regulation is various, such as overseas news site, web page of human rights organization.

In the center of Beijing is a modern town where huge buildings are lined with countless cars, but in this case it is "commonplace" to be blocked by "Kim Shield", compared with those of Japan like this I'm still more free, but I do not quite know what will happen in the future.
