I want to learn about circumventing Internet censorship
There are numerous ways to block a website. Luckily there are also many ways to get around these blocks. For a quick primer, look at the How to Circumvent Online Censorship guide by the EFF or the more detailed Floss manual on bypassing censorship, or a practical multilingual guide on how to remain anonymous and bypass censorship on the Internet from the Security in-a-box project.
The solution lies in connecting to the desired website via an intermediary server – and hiding this action from the censor. There are a number of tools and services to achieve this:
A growing number of countries practicing Internet censorship are beginnning to discover and block access to these intermediaries as well. If neither method works (as you live in a country that blocks public circumvention methods) then you may need to ask a friend living in another country to set up a proxy server, a Tor Bridge or a VPN just for you. The latter (setting up a VPN server) is a little trickier and will require some technical competency with Linux systems (and possibly home routers).
