According to a report from The Intercept, Google is working on a censored search engine for China that will “blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.” The project, codenamed Dragonfly, has been underway since spring of 2017, and Google has been working with the Chinese government to get the censored search engine approved.

The censored search engine will comply with the Chinese government’s strict censorship laws, which ban websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest. Google’s search engine will also identify and track users’ searches, and collect their personal data, in order to comply with the Chinese government’s demands for information about its citizens.

Google’s censored search engine for China is a betrayal of the company’s values, and a capitulation to the Chinese government’s demands for censorship and control. This project must be stopped.
