Yahoo! to China: Here’s your dissidents!

There’s an interesting article on the blog over at The Nation discussing Yahoo! and how they’re cooperating with the Chinese government, turning over dissidents – where at least three dissidents have been jailed.

In all, Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, and Cisco are all cooperating, but Yahoo! seems to be singled out. The desire to make money has won out over morals, and these companies have caved. It’s pretty disgusting.

Picture the lone guy standing in front of the tank in Tiananmen (sp?) Square. Then imagine the Yahoo! logo over him with his name, address, and all his contact information. Dissidents like him often wind up dead in China…
