"Reporters Without Borders calls on Giuliano Berretta, the CEO of the European satellite company Eutelsat, to quickly reverse its decision to suspend independent Chinese-language broadcaster NTDTV’s use of Eutelsat’s W5 satellite to broadcast to Asia.
Eutelsat claims it was forced to suspend NTDTV (New Tang Dynasty Television) on 16 June because of a technical problem but a recorded conversation with an employee of Eutelsat show it was a premeditated, politically-motivated decision violating the free flow of information and the convention under which Eutelsat operates."
You can find the transcript of the conversation inside the RSF.org article (pdf file), in which we discover that the reasons they decided to give for stopping the signal was "technical reasons" (page 3).
On RSF's article, we also discover that NTDTV is related to the Falungong movement (forbidden in China).
As is La Grande Epoque, a bimonthly newspaper about China published worldwide, both on print and on the web. I discovered it a few days ago, walking past a Chinese restaurant. Of course the newspaper gives a big coverage about NTDTV being stopped, with links to the official petition. You can also read exerpts from the "9 commentaries on the Communist Party"
had never heard of NTDTV before, but I hope it will resume broadcasting, I think it would be interesting to watch (on satellite).
