Freedom Online Coalition issues statement on cross-border attacks on freedom of expression online

The Freedom Online Coalition has issued a statement calling upon governments to halt measures designed, in contravention of states’ international human rights obligations, to restrict the freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assembly online, as stated in the “Tallinn Agenda”. These measures include imprisonment, harassment, physical violence, censorship, as well as illicit filtering, blocking, and monitoring of opposition voices. These tactics negatively impact the exercise of freedoms online, diminish trust among actors in the digital space, and erode the Internet’s economic and social benefits for all.
