Oh Noes, Teh Internets!

Well, that just does it. Today the government of Oppressedistan installed some new censorship gear. Our VPNs and proxies no longer work - even TOR is broken! Facebook and Twitter are unreachable. Oppressedistan.com has been blocked too - good thing it's built using the Where's the Party? mirror system. The censors haven't found our mirrors yet, but more are always needed. Contact me if you'd like to help.

Government Kicks Puppies

August 15, 2011 at 07:22 PM | Tags: puppies, protest

That the government of Oppressedistan is not very nice is well known. Today's events reached a new low, even for them. A report from a citizen of Meanville:

It is a sad, sad day in Meanville. Hundreds of puppies gathered downtown to protest against the repressive regime. The puppies were very peaceful - not a single slipper was chewed. Shortly after noon, the police descended on the square. Without warning, they began kicking puppies left and right. Four puppies went to the vet and 36 were sent to bed without dinner.

As a jaded Opressedistonian, this shocks even me. Is there no low that President Suckass will not sink to in his futile efforts to remain in power? Won't someone help us?

It's Hot

It's another incredibly hot week in Oppressedistan. As this incredibly talented aritst says:

It's getting hot in here
So take off all your clothes
I am gettin so hot, I wanna take my clothes off

Not sure how the government will feel about that. Only one way to find out.

Help, Help, We're Being Oppressed!
