China: Open letter to Google on reported plans to launch a censored search engine in China
Google’s reported plan to introduce a censored search engine app in China would represent an alarming capitulation on human rights. In an open letter to Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, Amnesty International and 13 other human rights groups are calling on Google to answer basic questions about an app, known internally as “Project Dragonfly”, which would block certain websites and search terms. Google should heed the concerns raised by human rights groups and its own employees and refrain from offering censored search services in China.
