Amnesty International: Campaign against Internet Repression
from Amnesty International Malaysia:
Amnesty International Campaign Against Internet Repression
From Iran to the Maldives and Cuba to Vietnam, governments today are both cracking down on those who use the internet to communicate their views and denying their citizens access to its wealth of information. Web users are locked up, internet cafes are shut down, chat rooms are policed and blogs deleted. Websites are blocked, foreign news banned, and search engines filter out sensitive results.

The internet’s potential for change is being undermined — by governments unwilling to tolerate this free media outlet, and by companies willing to help them repress free speech.
Amnesty International is today going global with a campaign which aims to claim back the web as a force for change in the face of an increasing willingness on the part of technology companies to aid censorship and repression. We are also launching a new report on about the role of Yahoo!, Microsoft and Google in internet repression in China. It has never been more important to stand up for human rights. If you believe in freedom of expression, and in the power of the internet, join our campaign now.
