Tunisian Opposition Offers Tech Guidance for Beating Internet Censorship

Tunisia's protesters, faced with the crackdown on new and social media I noted yesterday, are fighting back: the Nawaat website offers a technical guide to beating the government blockages (link is in French).

Global Voices Online also looks at the rising tide of Tunisian Internet censorship.

Meanwhile, Brian Whitaker of The Guardian, who's given the fullest English-language coverage I've seen to the Tunisian events, gives fuller coverage of the Internet crackdown.
