Demand 8: Online Protest is not a Crime

It has become common practice, and a virtual human right, to inform oneself and others and communicate via the internet. Protests against certain private companies can only be enacted in cyberspace -- consumer protests against online services are a prime example. To exercise basic rights -- such as free speech and freedom of association -- is not a crime either off-line or on-line. It must never serve as a justification for military responses or wars.

Our detailed demands:
  • The right to civil resistance and online protest must be respected – assuming no violence is involved and no damage is caused. [? what constitutes damage ?]
  • Online protest must never be criminalised or even construed as a cause of war.
