Filtering In Tunesia 2005

While it's starting to become somewhat of a cliche to point out that Tunesia's anti-democratic and anti-speech tendencies make it far from the right place to hold the World Summit on the Information Society (Q's: Which country would be right, anyway? Isn't Tunesia representative for the Information Society to be?), the Open Net Initiative has released its report Internet Filtering in Tunesia 2005. Nice timing, here's a small abstract:
A country study documents Tunisia's attempts to control Internet information, including the filtering of Web sites, blogs, and anonymizer services. Drawing on open sources and a detailed year-long technical investigation, ONI research describes Tunisia's aggressive targeting and blocking of on-line content, including political opposition Web sites, human rights groups, and sites that provide access to privacy-enhancing technologies.
