Our government has blocked out all the videos. Is there anything you can do to unblock

Even in countries where freedom is supposed to be sacred, the rights of citizens are being eroded everyday by out of control police forces and national security agencies. Heroes like Edward Snowden have shown this brilliantly in the last few years.
I don’t know where you live of course, but judging by your question’s formulation, I suspect you live in a country where human rights aren’t even something the government even bothers about. In this context, in the long run, fomenting a revolution is certainly the best course of action, although it won’t help you in the short run in watching videos.
In the near future, accessing Tumblr’s website through a proxy server using a tunnelled encrypted connection (a VPN) might help you circumvent the blockage imposed by your government. I write “might”, as some government have created formidable great walls to prevent knowledge from reaching the population they are supposed to serve.
Is there anything I can do ? Very little, I’m afraid, aside from providing moral support in your fight for being respected as a human.
The idea that all humans are equal first began to be discussed when Bartolomé de las Casas first argued against indian slavery in the Spanish colonies around 1515. It is very sad that exactly 500 years later (we’re almost in 2015…) those rights are still unrecognized for a large part of the Earth’s population, and where they are, they are being trampled and abused on a daily basis.
