According to a news story on BBC News, Amnesty International is asking bloggers to show their support for freedom of speech.
Amnesty International is asking bloggers to highlight other bloggers and publicize cases where freedom of speech is under attack. It wants to make the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) lobby the UN to “act as a debating body for national net policies”, helping bloggers and anyone expressing their “freedom of speech” rights do so without persecution.
I think this is an extremely worthy cause. I’m all for freedom of speech, and I’m also pretty darn fond of blogging (obviously). If you have a blog, I’d like to add my request that you take part in this. No one should have to put their life on the line just to express their opinion.
