Silenced - China’s Great Wall of Censorship

This book takes the reader on a fascinating and disturbing trip behind China’s Great Wall of Censorship. It also tells the story of Voice of Tibet, the radio station China couldn’t silence.

In China and Tibet freedom of speech and opinion is suppressed. No dissident voices are tolerated, and all media and communication channels are controlled and used as tools in the Party’s quest to maintain its power monopoly. Many are demanding more openness and freedom, warning that the ongoing media crackdown is “sowing the seeds of disaster for political and social transition.”

China is approaching a crossroads. Will the Communist Party elite allow the masses more freedom, or will they continue to “strike hard”? Do access to the Internet, mobile phones and foreign broadcasts empower the people and provide tools for change, or will censorship and fear continue to rule the Chinese and Tibetan people?

This book takes the reader on a fascinating and disturbing trip behind China’s Great Wall of Censorship. It also tells the story of Voice of Tibet, the radio station China couldn’t silence.
