[Internet Society Blogs] Tell Policy Makers to Think Twice Before Blocking Content or Flipping the Internet Kill Switch

RightsCon 2017 is kicking off today (29-31 March, Brussels) so we wanted to give you an update and also ask for your help amplifying our message.

Restrictions to Internet access are on the rise globally . Data shows that between 2015 and 2016, the number of Internet shutdowns bumped up from 15 to 56 worldwide. Not only is this causing collateral damage to the Internet, but we’re also putting the society and economy at risk. If we don’t do anything, we are at serious risk of eroding the trust that people have in the Internet – to the point of no return.
