Gaining access to blocked Web sites

I live in an area where half of the web sites are blocked and access is denied. How can I get access to these sites?
You can try utilizing public proxy servers to access resources. This Web site maintains a large list of proxy resources. Similarly, a google search for "public proxy servers" will turn up a large list. Some words of caution however. Using proxy servers to bypass corporate security policies is usually grounds for termination, so keep that in mind. Also, many network security administrators and companies that implement content filtering actively locate and block public proxy servers in the same manner you do – by using google and the website.
