Blogging For A Cause: Support Global Voices Advocacy

Global Voices Advocacy is a project of Global Voices Online which seeks to build a global anti-censorship network of bloggers and online activists throughout the developing world that is dedicated to protecting freedom of expression and free access to information online.

There are so many blogs and causes online, but at Global Voices we feel it's important for bloggers to stick together and support each other when bloggers in many countries still risk harassment, prison or even torture for the work they do - not to mention having their blogs filtered or censored by authorities who object to their opinions. Freedom of speech on the web affects everyone, not just bloggers. It is a human right to both say and read what we wish.

Global Voices Advocacy keeps track of online censorship worldwide in daily posts, and maintains a map of web 2.0 censorship. There are also guides like Anoymous Blogging with Wordpress & Tor or Blogging for a Cause that many bloggers appreciate.

It's a blog run by Sami ben Gharbia, who is himself a blogger in exile, together with a great community of authors.
