Reporters Without Boaders is a public interest group established to protect the right of reporters, journalists, and bloggers to witness and report on events.

It is calling on Internet users and bloggers to support six key proposals it issued last week “…aimed at ensuring that Internet-sector companies respect free expression when operating in repressive countries.

The organization is asking Internet users and bloggers to sign a petition supporting the initiative and to invite others to do so as well. The document outlining their position is important, one that should be read and thought through by anyone interested in protecting freedom of expression online.

It mentions concerns around, “ethical lapses displayed by certain Internet sector companies when operating in repressive countries”, highlighting actions taken by Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and Cisco Systems, in order to smooth entry into the burgeoning Chinese market.

Please support the Reporters Without Borders petition.
