Commimttee to Protect Bloggers

Thursday, January 20, 2005

I came across the Committee to Protect Bloggers website today (via Subzero Blue). It says:

The Committee has four primary spheres of activity.

  • CPB will serve as a clearinghouse for information on incarcerated members of our community, as well as those whose lives have been taken from them because of their enthusiasm for the free exchange of information that blogging allows.
  • CPB will serve as a pressure group to force unrecalcitrant governments to free imprisoned bloggers, and make restitution for tortured and murdered ones.
  • CPB will bring to bear the formidable communicative power of the blogosphere to keep pressure on governments to stop
  • CPB will act as direct agents in negotiations to free imprisoned bloggers.

(Continued)

Well that sounds like a good idea to me. As I've mentioned before, us bloggers in Bahrain have so far not had any restrictions placed upon us yet. But given the often ambiguous nature of our justice system, it would be wise to be prepared.

its good that people have recognises that there is a potential problem looming here. I doubt there are any written laws concerning information on the internet (aside from copyright law).

Lets hope that these kind of pressure groups are never actually needed...i.e. no one is ever actully arrested!

SBG, thanks for the concern, but I'm safe. I just got back from my Eid vacation that was extended due to illness, flight cancellations, delays, etc. Cheers!
