GREEN PARTY MEP BACKS INTERNET FREE SPEECH BID

LUCAS BACKS AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S IRREPRESSIBLE.INFO CAMPAIGN

GREEN Party Principal Speaker and Euro-MP Caroline Lucas has demanded the
release of a Chinese journalist Shi Tao jailed for ten years for sending an
email – and called for an end to all government repression of the Internet.

Dr Lucas joins a high-profile group of supporters of irrepressible.info – a
campaign for free speech over the Internet, launched by human rights group
Amnesty International and The Observer newspaper.

“The Internet has made possible the free movement of information and ideas
across national borders and has delivered the practical ability to exercise
free speech on a global scale,” said Dr Lucas.

“But a number of repressive governments are limiting their citizens’ freedom
to access the Internet – and throwing them in jail for even trying. Perhaps
even worse, multinational and western companies are helping them do so.

“This timely campaign aims to stamp this out once and for all: it calls for
governments to stop all efforts to censor or limit access to the Internet –
and persecute its users – and for all Internet Service Providers and ‘search
engine’ operators to refuse to work with governments that fail to do so.”

Shi Tao is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence for ‘illegally
providing state secrets’ after the Chinese partner of Yahoo! gave evidence
against him in court. His crime? Sending an email to a US-based
pro-democracy website about Chinese efforts to stifle reporting of the
Tiananmen Square democracy protests in which hundreds were killed.

Now Dr Lucas has written to the Chinese Government, demanding his release
and added her name to the growing list of supporters of the
irrepressible.info campaign.

She has also linked her own website www.carolinelucasmep.org.uk to the
campaign site – and will be highlighting a series of ‘banned’ messages,
trying to undermine censorship by directly publishing one of the thousands
of messages restricted by governments someone in the world.

Dr Lucas added: “Amnesty International has changed the way we think about
human rights – and its work has changed the law and ensured governments
abide by it in thousands of cases around the world.

“I hope irrepressible.info has a similar effect and is able to galvanise
public support for a genuinely free and democratic Internet.”
