Yum supports using a SOCKS5 proxy, so what I've done in cases like this is to SSH to another machine (that isn't blocked) and add the -D5000 option to SSH, which will give a SOCKS5 proxy on port 5000 that yum can connect to. Then you can use an environment variable to tell yum to use the proxy on socks5://localhost:5000. You could also use some publicly available HTTP proxy.
