WebMink writes "Knowing that its explosive special edition on China this week will be blocked by censorship, UK political magazine "New Statesmen" has taken the unusual step of posting its own torrents of the PDF of the Mandarin edition on the magazine.

The magazine asks us to share the PDF,.torrent file and magnet link widely, so where better than Slashdot?" Link to Original Source
