WEBCAST TODAY: @FreedomHouseDC Freedom on the Net Report 2015 Launch #netfreedom2015

Today, Wednesday October 28 2015, Freedom House has released the Freedom on the Net Report 2015. The Internet Society policy team has summarized its findings saying the report:

offers a stark, and concerning, view on the current status of online freedoms. Out of the 65 countries assessed, the report concludes that Internet freedom in the world has declined for the sixth consecutive year. Governments that had already expanded their arsenal of tools for controlling the online sphere are now strengthening their application of these methods

The report is being launched with a panel discussion with speakers Gady Epstein of The Economist, Eileen Donahoe of Human Rights Watch, Chinmayi Arun of the Centre for Communication Governance, and activists Grace Githaiga and Tetyana Lokot. The event is being webcast live via the Freedom House YouTube Channel.
