Internet freedom Tuesday

John Moe Feb 14, 2011

Secretary of State Clinton will speak tomorrow at George Washington University.

From The Hill:

The speech is expected to criticize Egyptian authorities who tried to black out Internet and phone service during protests there this month.

Also on Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will release a report that criticizes the State Department’s efforts to push forward efforts to bring Internet freedom to those who need it.

From AFP:

Congress has given the State Department $50 million for Internet freedom programs since fiscal 2008, the report said, but $30 million remains unspent and little has gone to Internet Censorship Circumvention Technology.
