Online freedoms

Online freedoms

The Internet has become both a popular place for exercising the right to free speech and an essential vehicle for circulating news and information. As some governments try to control the Internet and silence dissidents, RSF defends the position, both at the national level and internationally, that the rights guaranteed offline should also be guaranteed online. RSF also lobbies international bodies in support of net neutrality and against surveillance and carries out specific projects such Operation Collateral Freedom to unblock censored websites.
