Infamous publishing and computer security group supports protests against state-sponsored censorship of the Internet.

CULT OF THE DEAD COW, an impossibly attractive and talented group of computer enthusiasts, recently launched a targeted campaign to raise awareness around Internet censorship.

For the last decade, the cDc has been combating information rights abuses through its subset Hacktivismo, an international group of hackers, human rights workers, lawyers and artists. Their Hacktivismo Declaration outlines assertions of liberty in support of an uncensored Internet.

Oxblood Ruffin, Executive Director and Founder of Hacktivismo, states: “The real issue here is government, or rather, the absence of it. China has consistently been rewarded for bad behavior - by everyone. By the European Union, by America, Canada, Australia, the UK, ad nauseam. China has always demanded special treatment, and has gotten it. So it's not really a big surprise that we're having a "censorship" problem in China.”

The cDc’s Internet censorship campaign calls for quiet, firm, consistent, and respectful criticism of Chinese political policies.


Based in Lubbock, Texas, CULT OF THE DEAD COW (cDc) is the most influential hacking group in the world. The cDc alumni reads like a Who's Who of hacking and includes a former Presidential advisor on Internet security, among others. The group is further distinguished by publishing the longest running e-zine on the Internet [est. 1984], stretching the limits of the First Amendment, and fighting anyone or any government that aspires to limit free speech.
