    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    We need to address how corporate-owned mainstream news organizations restrict the freedom of journalists and prevent the public from having access to a wide variety of important news and opinion articles. This lack of balanced information affects everything from people having the information they need to decide how to vote to all of us better understanding how power is exercised in our communities. The censorship consists of banning some topics and discussions and filtering out stories and ideas that do not fit the current mainstream media agenda.

  22. Feminists Against Censorship
    Resource Type: Website
    A group of feminist academics and campaigners who fight censorship from a feminist perspective. They believe:
    1) Censorship is a dangerous tool that is primarily used to suppress dissent from those who would challenge oppression by society and the state, and particularly victimizes minorities.
    2) Censorship is used by those in power as a way to avoid dealing with serious, intractable problems in society that require real, imaginative action, and are not solved by banning words and images.
    3) Women must have recourse to free expression in order to explore the truth of our own experience and sexuality that has been forcibly hidden from us for millennia, and the state must no longer be permitted to interfere with this discourse.
    4) Censorship can never eliminate evil ideas, and so the best answer to bad speech is more speech.
    5) Censorship gives unacceptable powers to the police to invade our privacy and harass individuals who they find threatening although they pose no threat to others.

    Statement of the Alumni for Responsible Speech

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    While we support freedom of speech and academic freedom, we believe that university administrations have a duty to provide a safe learning environment in which students and faculty are protected by incorrect or harmful ideas. To achieve this safe learning environment, it will be necessary for the university authorities to cleanse the university's libraries of harmful books, to block inappropriate Internet sites, to ban guest lectures who hold improper views, and to identify and prosecute students and faculty who are guilty of thought crimes.
  25. 'Free speech' - as long as it doesn't offend anyone 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    On the issue of free speech most of the right and much of the left are in agreement, and so too are many liberals, activists, and human rights apparatchiks. They hold essentially the same position on freedom of expression - they are for it -in principle-, but only so long as it isn't used to express views that they find unacceptable or offensive. What they disagree about is merely who gets to decide what ideas are unacceptable, i.e., who gets to censor who.

  27. Free Speech For Me - But Not For Thee
    How the American Left and Right Relentlessly Censor Each Other

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1992
    Hentoff is a passionate believer in free speech who recognizes that if speech is truly to be free, we must protect the expression even of ideas we abhors. He catalogues with equal disapproval the efforts of both the right and the left to censor speech they don't like. While being sympathetic to those who object to allowing bigots, racists, pornographers, atheists, and others of many stripes the right to lay out ideas that one group or another finds repugnant, he makes both an intellectual and an emotional case for allowing everyone to have their say, no matter how much this may offend some. He points out that suppressing speech doesn't get rid of the underlying thought, but merely drives it underground and gives it the benefit of martyrdom.
  28. Free speech for me - you shut up
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    The right to express offensive views is at the very heart of the principle of free speech.
  29. Free Speech in a Plural Society
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The argument against free speech is really an argument in defence of particular sectional interests. And that is the best reason for rejecting restraints on speech. We can build a plural society in which free speech provides the means of engagement and dialogue between different parts of society.

  35. Hate Speech and Free Speech
    The Wrong Kind of Climate Control

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Laws against sedition, in whatever guise, are an attack on free speech. Unlike laws against those rare instances of incitement which trigger immediate and actual violence against a present target (as in "get him boys!"), laws against sedition are always couched in vague, open ended terms because the real target is not the alleged "dangers" protected against but some political agenda or ideology that is opposed.
  36. Hate speech in a plural society
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    One of the ironies of living in a more inclusive, more diverse society appears to be that the preservation of diversity requires us to leave increasingly to leave less room for a diversity of views. So, it is becoming increasingly common these days for liberals to proclaim that free speech is necessary in principle – but also to argue that in practice we should give up that right.
  37. Here come the thought police

  38. Here We Go Again 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    One thing should be clear. The violence across the Muslim world in response to an American anti-Islamic film has nothing to do with that film. Yes, The Inocence of Muslims is a risibly crude diatribe against Islam, but the violence is being driven less by religious fury than by political calculation. In Libya, Egypt and elsewhere, the crisis is being fostered by hardline Islamists in an attempt to seize the political initiative in a period of transition and turmoil. The film is almost incidental to this process. The real struggle is not between Muslims and non-Muslims, but between different shades of Islamists, between hardline factions and more mainstream ones.
  39. His Right to Say It
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1981

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Hate crime legislation lent legitimacy to a 40-year carceral program that has wrought immense damage on communities of colour. In an ironic twist, the police - who've been the main enforcers of this program - now want to invoke these laws for their protection.
  41. If boycotts could change the system they'd be illegal
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1996
    A ruling by the Ontario Court of Appeal says that boycotting by a grassroots group Friends of the Lubicon Lake Cree Nation of Daishowa paper products was illegal because it resulted in economic harm to the corporation.

    First Published: 2015

  44. I've changed my mind on the gay cake row. Here's why
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Like most gay and equality campaigners, I initially condemned the Christian-run Ashers Bakery in Belfast over its refusal to produce a cake with a pro-gay marriage slogan for a gay customer, Gareth Lee. I supported his legal claim against Ashers and the subsequent verdict – the bakery was found guilty of discrimination last year. Now, two days before the case goes to appeal, I have changed my mind. Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion.

    First Published: 2013
    Mohammad Saba’aneh, who has a daily cartoon in the Palestinian newspaper al-Hayat al-Jadida, has published his work in newspapers across the Arab world.

Targeted by Israeli occupation authorities for the opinions expressed in his art, he was arrested by Israeli occupation forces, and jailed.
  46. Je Suis Charlie? It's a Bit Late 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Hardly had news begun filtering out about the Charlie Hebdo shootings, than there were those suggesting that the magazine was a 'racist institution' and that the cartoonists, if not deserving what they got, had nevertheless brought it on themselves through their incessant attacks on Islam. What is really racist is the idea only nice white liberals want to challenge religion or demolish its pretensions or can handle satire and ridicule. Those who claim that it is ‘racist’ or ‘Islamophobic’ to mock the Prophet Mohammad, appear to imagine, with the racists, that all Muslims are reactionaries. It is here that leftwing ‘anti-racism’ joins hands with rightwing anti-Muslim bigotry.
  47. Jewish Canadians Concerned About Suppression of Criticism of Israel
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    We are Jewish Canadians concerned about all expressions of racism, anti-Semitism, and social injustice. We believe that the Holocaust legacy "Never again" means never again for all peoples. It is a tragic turn of history that the State of Israel, with its ideals of democracy and its dream of being a safe haven for Jewish people, causes immeasurable suffering and injustice to the Palestinian people.
  48. Manufacturing Consent 
    The Political Economy of the Mass Media

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988
    Contrary to the usual image of the press and cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitious in its search for truth, Herman and Chomsky depict how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the news. They analyze how issues are framed and topics chosen, and the way in which the marketplace and the economics of publishing significantly shape the news.
  49. Memory as Resistance: Grassroots Archives and the Battle of Memory
    Preservation as subversion: Do grassroots archives have a future?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    CONNEXIONS and Beit Zatoun are spotlighting grassroots archives this November with an open house and networking event November 24, a talk and discussion November 27, and an exhibit (November 16-27). Grassroots archives play a valuable role in what has been called “the battle of memory”. Mainstream media and institutions of power consign inconvenient histories, struggles, and alternative visions to what George Orwell called “the memory hole.” People’s history projects such as grassroots archives preserve and share stories of resistance, hidden histories, and alternative visions. Their role is particularly important as official archives are forced to restrict acquisitions, limit access and discard materials as funding is slashed.

    Resource Type: Book

  51. Out of Bounds
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Why do we talk so much about hate speech these days? Largely because hate speech has become a way of rebranding extremist ideas to stress their moral content; in other words, of rebranding obnoxious political claims as immoral arguments. Where once we might have challenged such sentiments politically, today we are more likely to seek criminal sanctions to outlaw them.

  58. Protect the Freedom to Shock
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    Far from being the cornerstone of a diverse, plural society, the refusal to give offence shows respect neither for oneself nor for others. Respect for oneself requires self-belief, a willingness to take a stand, to be unpopular, to refuse to see oneself as a victim easily disturbed by provocative beliefs. Respecting others means not ignoring them but engaging with them by putting them on their mettle and challenging their ideas and arguments. Without heated, entrenched debate a plural society becomes but a hollow shell.
  59. The pursuit of Julian Assange is an assault on freedom and a mockery of journalism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Four years ago, a barely noticed Pentagon document, leaked by WikiLeaks, described how WikiLeaks and Assange would be destroyed with a smear campaign leading to "criminal prosecution". We are witnessing the implementation of that plan.
  60. 'Rachel' screening in San Francisco shows a growing movement tired of being censored about Israel
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    A wide spectrum of individuals and organizations attempt to enforce the axiom: there shall be no public criticism of Israel. This platitude ironically goes hand in hand with the view that "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East." Over the past several decades, self-appointed watch dogs of appropriate Israel discourse have spent hundreds of millions of dollars and poured out enormous doses of vitriol upon any individual or organization that dares to expresses even a drop of sympathy with the plight of Palestinians.

    First Published: 2015
    Trade offices involved in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement have finally released all 30 chapters of the trade deal today, a month after announcing the conclusion of the deal in Atlanta. Some of the more dangerous threats to the public's rights to free expression, access to knowledge, and privacy online are contained in the copyright provisions in the Intellectual Property (IP) chapter. Now that the entire agreement is published, we can see how other chapters of the agreement contain further harmful rules that undermine our rights online and over our digital devices and content.
