Amnesty International’s “Irrepressible.Info” campaign

I’ve been meaning to mention this for a while.

Amnesty International has launched a campaign, called “Irrespressible.Info”, to highlight and to combat attacks on people’s online freedom of speech. There is a pledge to sign:

I believe the Internet should be a force for political freedom, not repression. People have the right to seek and receive information and to express their peaceful beliefs online without fear or interference.

I call on governments to stop the unwarranted restriction of freedom of expression on the Internet – and on companies to stop helping them do it.

You can also help combat attempts to silence bloggers and other internet activists by signing up to publish censored material on your website. Amnesty international compiles a database of censored material and each time someone loads your site into their browser a database entry will be displayed on the page.

As I write this, the Irrepressible.Info page claims 56677 peopled have signed the pledge.
