Since today the Great Firewall is active in Belgium. Most of the providers are participating on a free basis. Only some smaller providers aren't today.

It's meant to ban illegal sites...

West meets east?

I've read nothing about that in Belgian press. Any example Art-One?

The site fccu.be redirects to the official website of Belgian police.

with opendns you can bypass it as it isn't controlled by the participating providers

4chan.org is available here in Belgium too, it looks like a normale picture sharing site, or isn't it?

There is often a lot of illegal activity by users on the /b/ board Art-One.
