Deny internet access and the EU might deny trade

Parliaments around the world are acknowledging the serious nature of internet repression and the role that Governments and large companies play in this human rights abuse.The European Parliament has passed a proposal that views internet censorship by national governments as a barrier to trade with the EU. If passed by the European Council and adopted as a European Union (EU) law, the proposal could then impact on EU trade negotiations with governments such as China, Vietnam, Egypt and Iran to name just a few.
