When Truth Is Not Free, Freedom Is Not True.

The Internet is the new frontier in the struggle for Human Rights and Freedom of Expression.

In many countries, governments block or filter Internet content, denying access to information that they deem too sensitive for ordinary citizens. People are persecuted and imprisoned simply for criticising their government, calling for democracy and greater press freedom, or exposing human rights abuses, online.

In order to help defend Freedom Of Expression, Dofollownet.com has joined
the irrepressible.info campaign launched by Amnesty International and supported by the OpenNet Initiative.

Access Denied: Internet Filtering And Censorship

You might be wrong if you think that Internet censorship only occurs in "non democratic" countries: Internet content filtering exists also, to a lower level, in Western countries like Canada, the United States, Australia and in several European states.

To learn more about Global Internet Censorship and content filtering mechanisms, read the "Access Denied" report that was published last year by MIT Press.
