What is a Creative Commons license?

How can I protect my privacy?

As governments all over the world have begun to monitor the online activities of their citizens, the right to privacy has become increasingly important. The ease with which governments can now watch large numbers of people with relatively few resources means that the privacy, and safety, of human rights defenders is at risk.

What does this mean for human rights defenders?

The right to freedom of association is the right for individuals to gather with any other individual or group to promote, pursue or defend a common interest. Freedom of peaceful assembly generally refers to the right to participate in political gatherings and demonstrations, while freedom of association generally refers to the right to be part of an organisation or political party.

What can I do?

APC will be issuing statements and making recommendations throughout the process. You can help us through endorsements or by signing online petitions.
