Vietnam tighten censorship of bloggers

Interesting article in todays issue of the Phnom Penh Post of Vietnam attempts to tighten the censorship of bloggers and internet.

Reminds me of our recent trip to Vietnam, when we had to face problems to log into Facebook and after a few days were not able at all to use Facebook there. Was a strange experience to be in a country where the use of the internet is censored and the access to certain websites is blocked. Really do not like such systems and states who persecute the free expression of journalist and their people.

In fact this in one of many reasons why I do not want to travel to Vietnam again, not willing to support such a system with the money I spend there as a tourist.
