Can a WordPress Plugin Fight Internet Censorship?
Greenhost, a Dutch Web hosting firm, has launched the RePress Project. This is a WordPress plugin that turns your site into a proxy server to connect to Web sites that have been censored/blocked for whatever reason.
More and more governments from east and west are trying to censor the Internet. For different reasons the governments of countries like Iran, the USA, Syria, The Netherlands and China seek ways to block websites of the web and limit free speech. This plug-in will enable you to get those websites online again for you, your friends and the rest of the world without any hassle. Your website will become a proxy for the blocked website, rerouting any traffic from a user, through your website to the blocked site.
We believe in an Open Web and gladly make it possible for everyone to defend their human right to the free flow of information. By installing this plug-in you are doing your part to keep the Web Open.
Puzzled as to how proxy servers work? Wikipedia has a great overview.
