Yahoo to fund online dissidents

0 comments

Yahoo has set up a fund to help people jailed in China for using the Internet to protest about Tibet. 

These so-called cyber-dissidents have posted human rights views on the Internet.
The Yahoo Human Rights Fund is being administered by Harry Yu, who spent 19 years in Chinese labour camps, with the help of a board of directors.
The fund will be used to pay for legal costs and to support the families of people jailed for expressing human rights views on teh Internet.
