Silencing dissent in Tibet

Chinese authorities have taken online action in an effort to suppress the protests against Chinese rule in Tibet according to United Press International. Chinese authorities blocked access to YouTube and other sites, stopping web-users from seeing video footage of the demonstrations.

No such videos have appeared on the China-based, video sharing site (Afraid my Chinese isn't good enough to verify this).
