U.N. Report Declares Internet Access a Human Right

Wired today reported that the United Nations has declared Internet Access a basic human right, lets hope Mr. Harper and his crew listen

“A United Nations report said Friday that disconnecting people from the internet is a human rights violation and against international law.

The report railed against France and the United Kingdom, which have passed laws to remove accused copyright scofflaws from the internet. It also protested blocking internet access to quell political unrest(.pdf).”
