Thank You Websense, From Pakistan

Alle Tags anzeigen
Last week we wrote letter to the CEO, of Websense Gene Hodges and asked them to publicly commit not to sell or even bid for the Government’s Proposal for URL Filtering and blocking software. Civil society signed the petition,issued a press release and made requests. Today,Websense committed that they will not respond to the Government’s request and asking other companies to follow their lead, calling for a stance against censorship...We thank Websense for showing important leadership on this matter and respecting rights and privacy of Pakistan internet users. We applaud the efforts and commitment of Business Human Rights Centre for committing to help us and get our petition across to international surveillance companies. This is indeed a huge step in civil society’s campaign for internet freedom. We hope that other companies will follow the lead and make their pledge.
