Making minor adjustments to blog content and layout again. The recently added Opinmind widget has now been replaced in the left column by a link to IRREPRESSIBLE.INFO. This is an Amnesty International UK campaign against government repression of freedom of expression on the Internet.
Also signed the pledge which says:
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.
This will be used in support of the Amnesty position at a UN conference on the future of the Internet.
While following some links around this I cam across this account of the arrest of an innocent on the London tube by UK anti-terrorist police.
