SPECPOL Day 2

How would it feel if the government had complete control over what you were able to view or listen to on the internet? How would you feel if your favorite website was locked down? The Special Political and Decolonization Committee debated on the topic of protecting internet freedom. France and Indonesia stated that national security is favored over internet safety. They also endorsed that internet freedom is extremely important and that terrorists should not be tolerated. Brazil promoted surveillance of the internet but not the censorship of it. Somalia, Bolivia, and Australia stated that internet rights were human rights. These three delegates proposed a super-resolution on monitoring terrorist activities to protect human rights.
