Tunisia: Nawaat.org rifiuta l’Arab eContent Award 2011

Orgoglio rivoluzionario e altre meraviglie.

Nawaat.org, uno dei siti-organizzazione che si sono trovati in prima fila nella rivoluzione tunisina, ha vinto un premio in Bahrain: l’Arab eContent Award 2011, categoria E-inclusion & Participation.

Nawaat.org risponde così:

Since the eContent Award is officially sponsored by the Bahraini eGovernment Authority and since Nawaat’s position has always been to avoid any form of support from government organisations, we reject this award in protest against the Bahrain’s Internet filtering practices, the arrest of scores of bloggers and human rights activists and the arbitrary blocking of hundreds of websites and blogs that are critical of the Bahraini government and its ruling family.

Furthermore, the Bahraini eGovernment Authority is not in position to decide or accredit which website is eligible to win the Arab eContent Award 2011, especially under the e-Inclusion & Participation category. Bahrain’s internet freedom situation goes against the very principal of e-Inclusion & Participation.

Rifiutare premi è una cosa bellissima.

Rifiutarli con queste motivazioni, poi, è ancora meglio.
