The Global Internet Freedom Consortium is a consortium of organizations anti-censorship technologies for Internet users in countries whose governments are known to utilize such measures to control Web-based information access. The organization was reportedly begun in 2001 by Chinese-born scientists residing in the United States reacting against Chinese government oppression of the Falun Gong.


The organization states that the majority of its funding comes from its members. In May 2010, the group was offered a $1.5 million (USD) grant from the United States Department of State.[1] This move received criticism from representatives of the Chinese government.[2]
