Nepal: Shutdown Showdown

Postby cooran » Thu Apr 21, 2011 11:36 pm

Hello all,

This is a shock:

''Nepalese ISPs fighting to keep the internet open and unmonitored are under attack.
Join us in telling the Nepalese government to stop their heavy handed tactics and support internet freedom.

The Nepalese government is attacking ISPs that are trying to keep the internet free from censorship and police surveillance.

While their employees are harassed and arrested, Nepalese ISPs are standing up for their users.
Last week, the Nepalese ISPs effectively went on strike, shutting down the internet for an hour in the name of internet freedom.

Our Nepalese friends tell us a massive global petition could help stop the government's cyber bullying. And it will send a very strong message to other governments all over the world, that heavy-handed internet policies won't be tolerated by ISPs or users. Help''

Thanks Sam.

But how do you tell which report is true and which is false?
