Online Activism: Opportunities and Challenges

Freedom House was recently featured on an episode of PBS show “Ideas into Action.” The program focused on the ways in which human rights advocates and political activists are able to use the Internet to communicate their ideas with one another and with others around the world, and the challenges they face from repressive regimes like China and Iran. During the interview Chris Walker, director of studies at Freedom House, explained that by heavily censoring politically sensitive content, repressive regimes have been able to make criticism of the government less appealing to citizens.
