It is time for democratic regimes to take tangible steps in addressing restrictions on internet freedom around the world.

Freedom House denounces Chinese authorities’ refusal to renew the visa and press credentials of Al Jazeera English’s Melissa Chan, thereby forcing the closure of its Beijing Bureau.
