Netizens!

If you can access this with no fear of persecution and under no threat of bodily harm,then you are one of the lucky ones. Here are some of the not so lucky ones:

1. In Bahrain, the moderator of an online forum died in police custody in April 2011.

2.In Jordan, a blogger was stabbed in the stomach.

3. In Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan, those who criticized the government online have “disappeared under mysterious circumstances.”

4.In Mexico, bloggers who had written about organized crime were murdered, with notes that referred explicitly to the victims’ postings online.
