Parallel Blogs and the "Great Firewall of China"

The reason I run parallel blogs at this site and at www.globalenvironmentallaw.com is because sometimes one site or the other is blocked when I am on the Chinese mainland due to the government's "Great Firewall of China."  Earlier this week when I was having dinner with friends in Beijing one complained that she cannot view my website from China.  She was referring to this site because apparently blogspot is currently blocked on the mainland.  I told her to use www.globalenvironmentallaw.com instead, which is not currently blocked.  I am currently in Hong Kong, which is outside the government firewall so I am able to make this post.  But I am flying to Shanghai later today and I will be in China until Wednesday May 8.  If you do not see my regular Sunday post this week, go to my parallel site at www.globalenvironmentallaw.com, which I am confident I will be able to use even when I am inside the Chinese firewall.

Using the proxy is the only way, otherwise these sites are always difficult to go on.
