Microsoft: Don't Assist Human Rights Abuses!

Amnesty International is concerned about the ways Microsoft may be aiding the repression of freedom to information and expression in China. According to recent reports, Microsoft's search engine blocks searches under key words such as "freedom", "democracy", "human rights", "Falun Gong", and "demonstration", among others. Users of Microsoft Spaces are also prohibited from using these and other words on the weblogs they create. 

Send a message to Bill Gates that corporations must respect human rights wherever they operate!

This petition was delivered to:
  • Chairman, Microsoft
    William H. Gates
