More on #censorship

So I downloaded a picture from #Commons... However I did not know that my blog can be read in Iran but the pictures can not be seen.

I got a comment making me a bit wiser.

Please don't upload and save pictures from commons.

First it's a lot of work. second, all image and video servers are censored in Iran including blogger's. third, Iranians can break through censorship whenever necessary.
So I looked for a picture illustrating "freedom of the press" and could not find something nice on Commons..

PS Yes, I want Commons to be a well stocked source of illustrations..
Thanks,
