The Committee to Protect Bloggers is a new clearinghouse for information on bloggers who are punished, threatened or otherwise disadvantaged for what they post on their blogs.
The Committee has four primary spheres of activity.
– CPB will serve as a clearinghouse for information on incarcerated members of our community, as well as those whose lives have been taken from them because of their enthusiasm for the free exchange of information that blogging allows.
– CPB will serve as a pressure group to force unrecalcitrant governments to free imprisoned bloggers, and make restitution for tortured and murdered ones.
– CPB will bring to bear the formidable communicative power of the blogosphere to keep pressure on governments to stop
– CPB will act as direct agents in negotiations to free imprisoned bloggers.
