Badiucao (巴丢草): World Internet Conference

Badiucao (巴丢草): World Internet Conference

China plays host to the World Internet Conference this week in Wuzhen; while offering unfettered Internet access to conference participants, authorities have also imposed further limits on what foreign websites the rest of the population can access. For his latest contribution to CDT, Badiucao imagines a poster for the conference, in which the Internet is represented by the Twitter bird. On the sidelines, a row of slingshots emblazoned with the Communist Party flag are aimed at taking it down.
