Organisation Help by sharing this information News RSF_en November 27, 2012 – Updated on January 25, 2016 RWB launches We Fight Censorship website Visit the websiteToday, Reporters Without Borders launches a website called WeFightCensorship (WeFC) on which it will post content that has been censored or banned or has given rise to reprisals against its creator. This original website’s aim is to make censorship obsolete. It is an unprecedented initiative that will enable Reporters Without Borders to complement all of its other activities in defence of freedom of information, which include advocacy, lobbying and assistance.Content submitted by journalists or netizens who have been the victims of censorship – articles, videos, sound files, photos and so on – will be considered for publication on the WeFightCensorship site. The content selected by the WeFC editorial committee will be accompanied by a description of the context and creator. It may also be accompanied by copies of documents relating to the proceedings under which it was banned or other documents that might help the public to understand its importance. There will be French and English-language versions of the site. Documents from all over the world will be published in their original language (including Chinese, Persian and Vietnamese) and in translation. The site is designed to be easily duplicated and mirror versions will be created in order to thwart attempts to filter or block it. Internet users will be asked to circulate the censored content in order to give it as much visibility as possible.“Reporters Without Borders is providing a deterrent designed to encourage governments and others to respect freedom of information, the freedom that allows us to verify that all the other freedoms are being respected,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “This website aims to exploit the so-called ‘Streisand effect,’ under which the more you try to censor content online, the more the Internet community tends to circulate it. We want to show that jailing an article’s author, seizing copies of a newspaper or blocking access to a website with a certain video can prove very counter-productive and can result in the content going around the world.”By accessing a secured “digital safe,” Internet users will be able to submit content for publication anonymously. The website will also offer a “digital survival kit” with information about Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), encryption software such as TrueCrypt, online anonymization techniques such as Tor and other tools that news providers can use to protect their sources and, in authoritarian countries, their own safety.To support the launch, the Publicis Bruxelles advertising agency devised a campaign ad free of charge that shows several heads of State, including Vladimir Putin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Bashar al-Assad in their birthday suits with the legend “Totalitarian regimes will no longer be able to hide anything from us.” It will appear in the print media and online.Reporters Without Borders is an NGO with consultative status at the United Nations, UNESCO and the International Organization of the Francophonie. It has its international secretariat in Paris, 10 international bureaux (in Berlin, Brussels, Geneva, Madrid, New York, Rome, Stockholm, Tunis, Vienna and Washington) and more than 150 correspondents across all five continents.The WeFC project is supported by the European Union’s European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) and the Paris City Hall.

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation schedule will come to a dramatic end this weekend for USC women’s lacrosse, with the team needing to beat either Oregon or Stanford to qualify for the conference tournament. Luckily for the Women of Troy (7-6, 5-2 MPSF), both games will played at home.Friday’s contest against the Ducks (8-5, 4-1) will be played at McAlister Field, while Sunday’s matchup against the Cardinal (11-2, 5-1) will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It will be the first time since the opening game of USC’s inaugural 2012 season that a lacrosse game will be played at the Coliseum.The Women of Troy started strongly in MPSF play, winning their first five conference games behind the offensive firepower of sophomore attacker/midfielder Caroline de Lyra, who leads the team with 35 points.A pair of heartbreaking one-goal losses to Colorado and Denver, however, put the team’s chances of matching its 2013 fourth-place MPSF finish in jeopardy. Still, a win over Oregon or defending league champion Stanford would put USC in the MPSF tournament for the second straight year, an unexpected result for a two-year-old program.Friday’s contest should pit Oregon’s high-flying offense against a more defensive-minded USC team.The Ducks’ Shannon Propst has put up an otherworldly 60 points in just 13 games, while her teammate Carly O’Connell has notched 54. The pair should be a tough test for sophomore goalie Liz Schaeffer and the USC defense. Sophomore defender Courtney Tarleton, who leads the Women of Troy with 13 forced turnovers, will also need to be at her best.Last year, USC defeated Oregon, 12-10, in Eugene, Ore.Sunday’s game will be a matchup of similarly balanced playing styles.Though the Cardinal’s Rachel Ozer is the team’s leading point-getter at only 32, the team features five other players with more than 20 points.De Lyra has also spread the wealth this season for USC. Three freshmen, attacker Annie Ruland and midfielders Alex Moore and Michaela Michael, have tallied more 20 points. The group will have to keep performing well to get past a Stanford defense that allows less than nine goals per game.The Women of Troy face off against the Ducks at 4 p.m. on Friday, while Sunday’s matchup will begin at 1 p.m. and be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.Sunday also marks USC’s Senior Day, where the team will honor Ceilidh Meagher and Elizabeth Eddy, the team’s only seniors. Meagher has appeared in five games and recorded one assist this season, while Eddy has played in 12 games and scored one goal.Last year, Stanford topped USC, 17-12, in Palo Alto, Calif.After this weekend, the Women of Troy will travel to the Midwest to finish off the regular season, a trip that will include the first ever lacrosse game played at Wrigley Field. The matchup will take place on April 26 and feature powerhouse Northwestern, the alma mater of USC head coach Lindsey Munday.
