Presidenta Signs Internet Freedom Declaration

Costa Rica’s presidenta, Laura Chinchilla, has signed the Declaration of Internet Freedom.

When signing the declaration, she  said:

 The Internet has brought a new level of productivity fueled by innovation and creativity. I believe this has been possible due to the open and free nature of the Internet to date. […]

Although digital divides still exist around the world, we must implement policies to close these gaps, which can only happen in an environment of openness and freedom.

I am, therefore, happy to add my signature to the Declaration of Internet Freedom, and hope the leaders of the world will join us in preserving and nurturing this openness and freedom upon which a bright future can be built.

Internet Access is considered a Human Right in Costa Rica.

However the Congress recently passed a set of laws restricting Internet Freedoms. Let´s hope that the Presidenta will honour her word and will, from now on, be active in her campaign for Internet Freedom, working on all fora and networks she can influence.
