The Gmail is virtually inaccessible in mainland China. Activists suggest that it is a new intervention of the Chinese government through its great firewall to drive the company in the country. Own transparency reports Google show that traffic began to fall in China on the afternoon of Christmas and reached zero before the day of the early afternoon 26.
Chinese authorities blocked many Google services just before the 25th anniversary of the crackdown in Tiananmen Square in June this year. Since then, Gmail was available in mainland China only through protocols email, including IMAP and POP3, which allow you to access the service using applications such as Outlook or Mail on the iPhone. A new phase lock effectively removes the last means of access to Gmail through the Great Firewall of China without resorting to a virtual private network.
An anonymous member of GreatFire.org, a group that defends freedom of expression, suspects that with this action the Chinese government also aims to weaken the use of Gmail outside of China, “Imagine if Gmail users can not get in touch with Chinese customers. Many people outside China may be forced to abandon the Gmail “he said.
Singapore, a Google spokesman said the problem is not with the company. On the other hand, Hua Chuying, representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, said he did not know anything about the fall of Gmail and warrants that will “provide an open, transparent and good environment for foreign companies in China.”
This is another episode of the battle that the Chinese dictatorship has been waging against Google and Internet freedom. In 2011, hackers attacked the company’s servers to try to access accounts of some political opposition activists. In the same year, a WikiLeaks leak confirmed that the responsibility of the attack was the Chinese regime.
