Fears that the UK is moving towards the kind of web censorship system imposed by Communist China have increased after it was revealed that the website filtering blacklist set to be imposed by the end of next year will be controlled by a company with close ties to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
“The pornography filtering system praised by David Cameron is controlled by the controversial Chinese company Huawei,” reports the BBC, noting that Huawei’s founder is Ren Zhengfei, a former officer in China’s People’s Liberation Army and a Communist Party member.
As we reported last week, every Internet user in the UK will have their traffic run through a filtering system that will blacklist pornographic websites. The system set to be used is called Homesafe, which is run by Huawei-subsidiary Talktalk.
Even if the user opts out of the filter, they will “still have their traffic routed through the system.” In other countries that have attempted to impose similar systems, political and activist websites have also ended up on the blacklist.
