One-finger salute for China

One-finger salute for China

The Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.) recently made three fun tools for your personal battle against the Chinese government. It is all about Ai Weiwei.

The artist Ai Weiwei has been detained by Chinese authorities with very little known information about his status and wellbeing. He has been detained for 2 months. [Wikipedia]
F.A.T. made the tools for your personal anger.

The first tool is the China Blocker Browser Extension. Any Chinese website is blocked at your computer after installing the extension. It is replaced by an image with the up yours gesture on the Tiananmen Square in Beijing (see above).
The extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

The second tool is similar to the extension. It is a bookmarklet you can hit when visiting a doubtful website. Not necessarily a Chinese website. It works on any website, like Osocio. But damn you, don’t do that 🙂

F.A.T.: “FUCK OFF !! Deutsche Bank, BMW and Siemens for keeping their mouths shut about Ai Weiwei’s arrest. Yes, just keep sponsoring art shows and culture in China and pretend nothing has happend …. FUCK OFF !!!”

F.A.T. is asking you to post your screen shots in the comments.


The third fun tool is handicraft. Download the PDF, print double sided, cut and mount the parts.
