With Beijing 2008 finally at hand, China’s Tibetan occupation remains Hollywood’s cause célèbre. And why wouldn’t it be? Which other oppressed minority has the Beastie Boys, Michael Stipe, and Richard Gere as spokespeople, and has a spiritual leader who’s achieved pop star status (Dalai Lama).
Funniest thing in the world though, China has blocked bloggers from all over the world for expressing their opinion, myself included. I’ve been blogging a little about China and the situation in Tibet before (click here) but I didn’t expect this. I got the news from a friend of mine living in China at the moment. The error message he gets on his computer is pretty unspectacular, just:
Network Error (dns_unresolved_hostname)
Your requested host “www.tegis.wordpress.com!” could not be resolved by DNS.

No hammer and sickle at least. 🙂
