United Front Work Department Website Warns US Internet Company: Stop Providing Service to Tibetan and Uyghur Separatists!

Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department China Tibet Network website warns San Francisco-based Cloudflare company that cooperates with dominant Chinese search engine company Baidu that it should stop providing internet service to some websites run by Tibetans and Uigurs that the Chinese government considers to be separatist.

According to the July 1 report from the “China Tibet Network”, is providing internet services to both sides — not only to its Chinese partner Baidu but also to “Tibet independence” and to “Xinjiang independence” websites.  A web search turned up information, displayed in the article, that Cloudflare provides services to websites of both the organizations Tibetan Youth Congress and to TibetanWomen.

The article notes that Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince in an interview said that Cloudflare has seventeen data centers in China in 2015 and hopes to have fifty in 2016.  On the morning of June 28, as a representative of a ‘new economy’ businessman, he made a presentation to Chinese Premier Li Keqiang about the large investment that Cloudflare and its Chinese partner Baidu were making in China’s cloud computing infrastructure.

The article concludes “this writer believes that Cloudflare, Amazon and other companies come to China with the expectation that they will have good prospects to develop their businesses.  However, when faced with serious political issues, cannot we expect them to give a sincere and convincing response?”.

中国西藏网讯 Cloudflare是一家总部位于美国旧金山的跨国科技企业。它不仅能帮助受保护的网站抵御黑客攻击、垃圾邮件等,还能提高该网站的性能和访问速度。但不知是有意还是无意,这家公司在业务上“两头吃”,一边与百度合作,提升中国网民的上网体验,一边又为“藏独”、“疆独”等网站提供服务。

笔者通过ipaddress、alexa等专业网站调取的数据显示,Cloudflare至少为10余个“藏独”网站效力,其中包括“藏妇会”、“藏青会”、“瞭望西藏”、“达赖喇嘛西藏宗教基金会”(也即所谓的“流亡政府”驻台办事处)等网站。“东突厥斯坦教育与团结协会”网站、香港“普及投票”网等也在Cloudflare的客户名单上。

实际上,Cloudflare并非唯一一家“两头捞好处”的美国科技公司,亚马逊也在为“故土网”、“西藏评论网”等“藏独”网站服务。

Cloudflare并不掩饰自己的勃勃野心,其首席执行官马太·普林斯在接受媒体采访时曾表示,2015年Cloudflare在中国有17个数据中心,希望2016年能使公司在中国的数据中心数量增至50个。6月28日上午,作为“新经济”的企业家代表,马太·普林斯还在天津举行的2016夏季达沃斯论坛上,向中国国务院总理李克强介绍了他们与百度公司联手对中国云计算基础设施进行大量投资的情况。

与此同时,Cloudflare也向自己的中国伙伴展现了“诚意”:与百度公司共享代码和成果,并由百度工程师负责其中国数据中心的管理。合作仅一天,Cloudflare就发布消息称,通过缩短等待内容加载时间,该公司为中国网民节约了243年时间。

笔者愿意相信,Cloudflare、亚马逊等公司确是怀着美好愿景来华发展的。但是面对严肃的政治问题,是不是应该给出一个诚恳且有说服力的说法?(中国西藏网 文/金玲玲)
