Websites, blogs, and videos remain available online at the discretion of the internet companies that host them. But recent events in Egypt and Tunisia -- and Amazon’s takedown of Wikileaks -- have shown that online information isn’t necessarily safe on either side of the firewall.
Now, as people across the Middle East call for their voices to be heard, we must demand freedom of speech online for all -- regardless of political interference or technical restrictions. Some of the major platforms are starting to hear our calls (including Facebook, Google and Twitter). Please sign this petitiondemanding that the platforms which host much of the world’s information, stand firm against the regimes who are repressing their citizens, by establishing robust policies that respect human rights and protecting the security of those who use their services.
