Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital 'politically dangerous and morally egregious'
06 Dec 2017; posted by the editor - Opinion


By Yousef Munayyer, US Campaign for Palestinian Rights
Director Trump has just upended decades of US foreign policy by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This effectively hands Israel a blank political check for its illegal annexation of Jerusalem and legitimizes Israel's ongoing displacement and disenfranchisement of the city's Palestinian residents. Trump's move is politically dangerous, and morally egregious.

No justification for internet censorship during Catalan referendum
05 Oct 2017; posted by the editor - Human Rights, Internet news, Spain


by Jeremy Malcolm, EDRi member Electronic Frontier Foundation
The ruthless efficiency with which the Spanish government censored the internet ahead of the referendum on Catalonian independence foreshadowed the severity of its crackdown at polling places on 1 October. EDRi member Electronic Frontier Foundation previously wrote about one aspect of that censorship; the raid of the .cat top-level domain registry.
