Hello folks,
A close friend who works with one of the opposition political parties in
Pakistan is naturally extremely concerned about plans for censorship in
Pakistan, and would like to make an inventory/assessment of good tools out
there to disseminate among the internet community in Pakistan. Here is his
email below - hopefully some of you can reach out and help.

Thanks all for your important work, and thoughtful discussion.

Best,
Adrian

As you are well aware the Govt of Pakistan has serious plans to install a
very sturdy internet firewall in Pakistan. We are at the moment engaged in
local lobbying tactics to help stop the
RFP<http://ictrdf.org.pk/RFP-%20URL%20Filtering%20&%20Blocking.pdf>
but
it seems by all count the proposals are coming in and the government is set
to process this.

As an internet community in Pakistan I believe we need to plan for the
worst case scenario into thinking Circumventing technologies that we can
have ready as this system kicks into action.  Would it be possible to
be introduced to various tools and companies that can help Pakistan in this
crisis
