*Got a blog or website?

Undermine censorship by publishing fragments of censored material on your site

The more people take part the more we show that freedom of expression cannot be repressed.

* Only have a few minutes?

Sign the pledge to support freedom of expression on the internet

About this Pledge

An Amnesty International delegation handed in a petition of 50,000 signatures to this pledge in November 2006 at the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Athens, before an audience of governments and companies from across the world.

The IGF process continues and so does Amnesty's fight for freedom of expression online. Irrepressible.info will continue to collect signatures to the pledge and use them to campaign against internet repression.

The more people who sign up, the louder our voice. Please read and sign our pledge.
