Google Censorship: Flagrant Violation of Free Speech!

Say “NO!” To Google Censorship

Announcement: Anti-Censorship Campaign Against Google starts

Google search engines continue to block specific searches for information on New Zeelend posted after early June 2008.

New Zeelend is a non-commercial, volunteer service public information blog dedicated to exposing the truth about New Zealand.

In 2006 Amnesty International launched a campaign against Internet censorship targeting Google, Yahoo and Microsoft for complying with Internet censorship in China. Google and the others were accused of colluding with repressive regimes like the Chinese regime to curtail online freedom.”

The Internet has become a new frontier in the struggle for human rights,” said Kate Allen, director of Amnesty’s British operations.

“Its potential to empower and educate, to allow people to share and mobilize opinion, has led to government crackdowns,” she said.

Google Operates Outside US Constitution, International Law

Two years on, and in a flagrant violation the US Constitution and international law, Google now appears to be colluding with the repressive regime in New Zealand to curtail our online freedom and our inalienable right to free speech.

Freedom of speech is being able to speak freely without censorship. The United States Constitution protects opinions under inalienable 1st Amendment free speech rights.

The right to freedom of speech is also guaranteed under international law through numerous human-rights instruments, notably under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Google is blatantly violating the United States Constitution and the international law, and therefore poses a clear and present threat to online freedom and freedom of speech in the United states and in other countries throughout the world. Google must NOT be allowed to operate in its current format.

More information will be posted here.
