Reporters Without Borders’ Secretary General banned from Internet Summit

Think I’m overreacting? The Secretary General (Robert Ménard) of Reporters Without Borders was banned from attending the United Nations WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society) in Tunis for discussions about control of the internet.

I wonder why?

  1. That’s bizarre. What are they hiding? Playing soft ball with the Chinese perhaps? (See evil, hear no evil…)

  2. I’m not really surprised to be honest, the WSIS is focused on the public sector and the millenium declaration, wtf are they going on about? Those countries opposing free speech are enemies to their own people and nothing more.

  3. The U.S. will regret playing ball with China. It will come back to bite them in the ass some day.

  4. Thanks for the comment Mark and everyone else. Welcome to Blog Bloke.

    I agree with your concerns and conferences like this have to address the larger human picture. Not just the bottom line $$$.
