#MeToo reaches China and draws the ire of the country's censors
The #MeToo campaign has inspired scores of women worldwide to stand up against sexual assault. The movement has spread mostly through social media, including to China, where #MeToo-related posts have been deleted from popular social media sites, including a viral petition letter "calling for establishing an anti-sexual assault mechanism on campus" written by Gu Huaying, a former Peking University student.

"Even though the petition letter doesn’t involve any 'bad information' that can lead to so-called social instability, China’s censors still decided to delete it completely from social media, since any movement in itself is suspicious from the authorities’ perspective. Many netizens thus found that their posts about the petition letter on Weibo were deleted instantly without any explanation. So far, the original petition letter has been cleanly wiped out from the internet.

Despite the fierce censorship, more and more Chinese people are publicly calling for establishing anti-sexual assault mechanisms now, although they deftly refrain from mentioning the petition letter at all." - Charlotte Gao, The Diplomat

Spike in Chinese censorship over Beijing migrant worker evictions, kindergarten scandal
"Censorship in China has spiked in recent days as the government scrambles to contain public anger over the forced evictions of migrant workers and claims of child abuse at a kindergarten in Beijing, according to a monitoring group.
The percentage of posts deleted on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, has risen sharply in the wake of the controversies, according to Weiboscope, a University of Hong Kong project tracking censorship on the social media platform.
Keywords in posts most frequently deleted on Monday included 'kindergarten', 'low-end', 'population' and 'Beijing'. On Wednesday, the term 'low-end population' was censored on the mainland in group chats on the WeChat messaging app and blocked by Weibo’s search engine." - Viola Zhou, South China Morning Post

Beijing Pushes for a Direct Hand in China’s Big Tech Firms
"The Chinese government is pushing some of its biggest tech companies—including Tencent, Weibo and a unit of Alibaba—to offer the state a stake in them and a direct role in corporate decisions. Wary of the increasing power of private businesses, internet regulators have discussed taking 1% stakes with social-media powers Tencent Holdings Ltd. and Weibo Corp. and with Youku Tudou, a YouTube-like video platform owned by e-commerce titan Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA , according to people close to the companies...A document released by China’s leadership last month to encourage entrepreneurship instructs entrepreneurs to put patriotism first and follow the party’s guidance. At Mr. Xi’s urging, a campaign is under way to set up party units in private companies." - Li Yuan, Wall Street Journal

China’s Sina Weibo Hires 1,000 Supervisors to Censor ‘Harmful Content’—Including Women’s Legs
"Chinese tech giant Sina Weibo has recruited 1,000 Weibo supervisors to report on 'pornographic, illegal and harmful content' after China's Cyberspace Administration investigated and fined Weibo for failing to purge banned content from its social media platform.

The policy is already having adverse effects on users, particularly young women, whose photos are being labeled 'pornographic' if they show a woman's leg, abdomen or cleavage. Users who are found to violate the rules may have their 'social credit' scores reduced, which can limit to their ability to use the platform." - Oiwan Lam, Global Voices

China’s Weibo Hires 1000 ‘Supervisors’ to Censor Content
"As Chinese authorities are fiercely cracking down on the internet, China’s top social media platform Weibo doing its best to stay in line. On September 27, Weibo announced it would hire 1,000 'supervisors' from among its users to conduct censorship. Weibo said it will grant each supervisor membership, a special identity label on the platform and an online subsidy equal to 200 yuan (around $30). Furthermore, Weibo said it would reward the supervisors who have the best performance each month with iPhones, other smartphones, notebooks, or other prizes. According to the announcement, all supervisors, 'who work on their leisure time,' should report on no less than 200 pieces of content (including both original posts and comments) that either are pornographic, illegal or harmful. The announcement didn’t clarify what content should be regarded as 'harmful,' but it promised that Weibo would train the supervisors beforehand." - Charlotte Gao, The Diplomat

A gigantic Chinese social-media platform is offering iPhones for citizen censors
Weibo, a Chinese social network with over 340 million monthly users, posted a message (link in Chinese, registration required) on its official account yesterday (Sept. 27) announcing it would seek volunteer censors to help report users who post offensive content. In exchange, the company will offer cash stipends and prizes including an iPhone. The ad highlights how Chinese tech companies are facing increasing pressure to remove politically sensitive content from the internet. In an infographic...Weibo said it is seeking 1,000 'Weibo supervisors' to look out for 'sexual, illegal, or harmful' content in their spare time. The selected supervisors will receive access to a special mechanism that lets them 'report' such content." - Josh Horwitz, Quartz. See the aforementioned infographic (Chinese language) here:

China fines tech giants for not censoring banned content ahead of October's party congress
"Chinese authorities said on Monday that they have handed down maximum fines to the operators of three major social-media platforms in the country for failing to deal with pornography, violence and other banned content on their sites.

The affected platforms are Baidu's online forum Tieba, microblogging site Weibo and Tencent's massively popular social app WeChat. In August, authorities had said the respective operators were under investigation for cybersecurity violations.

The Cyberspace Administration of China, the watchdog that monitors online activities, issued a notice saying tech giants Baidu and Sina Weibo were handed maximum fines under the new cybersecurity law for 'failing to fulfill their management duties' in dealing with pornographic and violent content, as well as information that 'promotes ethnic hatred'"
