Well, it’s the internet which has the built-in capacity to allow people to move information around in a myriad of ways. Even supposedly ‘closed off’ subnets are easy enough to work around to allow information to get through somehow.

One of the more extreme examples of the affordances of the net is the case of the people on Nauru, an Australian refugee camp where Australia’s zero tolerance for illegals get sent to. 51% are children and they’ve suffered abuses there. But as newer young immigrants sent there smuggled in their smartphones and solar chargers, change began to take place. This part of a video made on their behalf really got me: a reminder that when it comes to censorship, it’s not that we can’t complain, but some can complain more and yet, they got their message out somehow.
