UN wants you to have the same rights online & off

The UN wants you to have the same rights you have online or off. They passed a resolution that states basically that. The resolution will impact on how the Internet is censored from now on.

The resolution has been called “momentous for the Human Rights Council.” It is the first from the UN that “confirms that human rights in the Internet realm must be protected with the same commitment as in the real world.”

The United States, Nigeria, Sweden, Turkey, and Brazil presented the bill. In totla there are 85 state co-sponsors. India, China, and Russia were the contries that were against the bill.
