China blocks certain sites such as Facebook and Youtube. They have their own stuff like QQ, Sogou, PPS and a dozen of others, all of them heavily monitored by the government. One chance you could do this is to obtain a foreign IP through a VPN connection, such as wepn.info in Hong Kong. They might block well known VPN too though, haven't tried when I was in China last year.
Thanks , however, actually there is no such law that says we cannot connect to YouTube, etc. It is due to some political reason. So, waiting for help.
Hongkong is part of China ,but it can ,why not me in mainland.
The OP already explained that the sites are blocked, but viewing the sites is not illegal. I heard from someone who travelled to China, that sites like CNN.com are intermittantly blocked when a story is running that the censors don't approve of.
Using Twitter or social networks to arrange a gathering is one thing that the Chinese Gov. is touchy about. Critisism on forums are often not censored.
