Index on Censorship condemns the apparent decision by Google to do business in China.

According to a report published by the Intercept, leaked documents disclose the Google is planning a censored search engine in the country.

“We’re appalled that Google — which has repeatedly stressed its commitment to freedom of expression – should effectively collude with one of the world’s most oppressive regimes in this way. We will be urging Google to drop Dragonfly and resist attempts by governments worldwide to restrict freedom of speech rather than providing those governments with tools to further undermine democracy,” Jodie Ginsberg, Chief Executive, Index on Censorship said.
