South Africa Cybercrimes Bill will be impossible to implement without violating rights

2 December 2015 (APC for APCNews)

Cyber security is essential for the exercise of both online and offline rights, as it is key to privacy and the protection of personal data. At APC we understand the need for a cyber crime and cyber security bill to make South Africa a safer place online. However, we suggest, along with many experts from different backgrounds, that the Bill be rejected in its current form.

Connecting Our Rights at IGF2013: Women and sexual rights defenders leading progress on equitable, inclusive internet policy

Bali, Indonesia

The human rights of women and sexual minorities are being increasingly impacted by the internet, not only through violence and discrimination, but through policies and legislation that do not recognise their specific contexts, concerns and capacities.

This was a key message coming out of the workshop hosted by APC’s CIPP and WRP, ‘Connecting Our Rights: Strategies for Progress’.

One line that makes an internet freedom fighter's day

It’s short, but it matters. In no more words than a Twitter message, Brazil made many internet rights activists happy in September. It’s worth revisiting this message and putting in context.
