Press Release:  The Arab Internet Freedom Alliance, Haqouna, and Iraqi Internet Freedom Alliance Jointly refute ISIS cutting Internet in parts of Iraq

 

Beirut, Lebanon

 

10 July 2015

 

The Arab Internet Freedom (IF) Alliance, Haqouna, and the Iraqi Internet Freedom (IF) Alliance refute the ISIS acts yesterday of cutting off the internet services in the region to the west of Anbar, so as to disconnect both civilians and Iraqi police forces.

 

Such an act contradicts with the principles of the Iraqi Alliance, especially the first and third principles, which state: the “non-negotiable protection, and the commitment of all stakeholders to human rights, where all will be granted same rights offline as online” and the “guaranteed and assuring internet access without service interruption, prohibiting, filtering, and promoting the exchange of information between individuals and communities.”

 

Internet freedom is non-negotiable and the Iraqi IF Alliance and the Arab IF Alliance call for an instant solution to internet interruptions.

 

The Iraqi Internet Freedom Alliance is a founding member of the Arab Internet Freedom Alliance and one of the initiatives of IJMA3.
