Australia’s New PM and the Great Firewall Reef

Australia's path to Internet filtration has become darker even after the new Prime Minister has taken office. After replacing the previous and unpopular head of Australia, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, the new PM, has a lot on her plate right now. Besides the challenges of being the first female PM in Australia's history, and the fact that the religious right is on the attack after she openly expressed her atheism, the debate on Australian Internet filtration seems to get only more complex each day, and she is providing no new hope for Internet rights activists, and freedom watchdogs.
