Dealing With Cybercensorship
Belarus Service Director Alyaksandr Lukashuk says that after a massive denial-of-service attack cut the service's website off from its Internet audience, the service was forced to use different means to get its message out. These included:
- going back to the airwaves and broadcasting on shortwave
- posting its material on the websites of the independent media and Internet community in Belarus, which came together in solidarity with the service in its response to the attack
- relying on a network of friends and dedicated listeners to spread the word on how to access the service's materials, on other websites and on the air.
