China blocks blogs by banned Tibetan writer - Chinese Censorship

Two blogs authored by Tibetan poet Woeser have been shut down according to Reporters without Borders. Woeser used her blogs - and to share her poetry and essays, along with articles by her husband, independent writer, Wang Lixiong. Because Woeser dared to speak out in her writing against the government, she lost her job, her home and her security and now her blogs. Woeser did what many of us writers do, she started a blog to get her writing out there and for that she has been censored. It’s not right!
