PRESS RELEASE - INTERNATIONAL

RSF presents handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents

SOURCE: Reporters sans frontières (RSF), Paris

(RSF/IFEX) - The following is a 22 September 2005 RSF press release:

Reporters Without Borders presents the Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-dissidents Available at www.rsf.org

Reporters Without Borders today publishes a Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents (in English, French, Chinese, Arabic and Persian), in which experts and bloggers from all over the world advise Internet users, especially those in repressive countries, how to set up their own blogs and get them known, while preserving their personal anonymity.

Create your own blog, remain anonymous and get round censorship!

Blogs get people excited. Or else they disturb and worry them. Some people distrust them. Others see them as the vanguard of a new information revolution. Because they allow and encourage ordinary people to speak up, they're tremendous tools of freedom of expression.

Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest.

Reporters Without Borders has produced this handbook to help them, with handy tips and technical advice on how to remain anonymous and to get round censorship, by choosing the most suitable method for each situation. It also explains how to set up and make the most of a blog, to publicise it (getting it picked up efficiently by search-engines) and to establish its credibility through observing basic ethical and journalistic principles.

Many Internet experts helped produce this manual, including US journalist Dan Gillmor, Canadian specialist in Internet censorship Nart Villeneuve, US blogger Jay Rosen and other bloggers from all over the world.

The Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-dissidents will be on sale in bookshops from 22 September for 10 euros. It can also be downloaded in five languages (English, French, Chinese, Arabic and Persian) from the Reporters Without Borders website: http://www.rsf.org

COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE - INTERNATIONAL

Le 26 septembre 2005

RSF publie un "guide pratique du blogger et du cyberdissident"

SOURCE: Reporters sans frontières (RSF), Paris

(RSF/IFEX) - Ci-dessous, un communiqué de presse de RSF, daté du 22 septembre 2005 :

Guide pratique du blogger et du cyberdissident

Disponible intégralement sur www.rsf.org

Reporters sans frontières publie aujourd'hui, en cinq langues (français, anglais, persan, chinois, arabe), un "guide pratique du blogger et du cyberdissident". Des spécialistes de l'Internet et des bloggers des quatre coins du globe ont participé à ce projet, qui vise à aider les internautes, en particulier ceux qui vivent dans des pays répressifs, à créer leur publication en ligne et à la faire connaître, tout en préservant leur anonymat.

Créez votre blog, préservez votre anonymat et contournez la censure !

Les blogs passionnent, inquiètent, dérangent, interpellent. Certains les méprisent, d'autres les tiennent pour les prophètes d'une nouvelle révolution de l'information. De fait, parce qu'ils délient les langues des citoyens ordinaires, ils sont un formidable outil pour la liberté d'expression. Dans les pays où la censure est reine, lorsque les médias traditionnels vivent à l'ombre du pouvoir, les bloggers sont souvent les seuls véritables journalistes. Ils sont les seuls à publier une information indépendante, quitte à déplaire à leur gouvernement et parfois au risque de leur liberté. Reporters sans frontières a conçu ce guide pour les aider, par des conseils pratiques et des astuces techniques, à préserver leur anonymat, à contourner la censure - en identifiant la technique la mieux adaptée à chaque situation -, mais aussi à lancer un blog dans de bonnes conditions, à le faire connaître - en optimisant son référencement sur les moteurs de recherche -, et à asseoir sa crédibilité via le respect de quelques règles éthiques et journalistiques.

De nombreux experts de l'Internet ont participé à ce guide, dont le journaliste américain Dan Gillmor, les journalistes français de pointblog.com, ainsi que des bloggers des quatre coins du monde.

Depuis le 22 septembre, le Guide pratique du blogger et du cyberdissident est disponible en librairie (10 euros). Il est également possible de le télécharger, en cinq langues (français, anglais, chinois, arabe et persan), sur le site de Reporters sans frontières : http://www.rsf.org

RSF presenta la Guía práctica del blogger y el ciberdisidente

FUENTE: Reporteros Sin Fronteras (RSF), París

(RSF/IFEX) - Lo que sigue es un comunicado de prensa de RSF, con fecha del 22 de septiembre de 2005:

Reporteros sin fronteras presenta la Guía práctica del blogger y el ciberdisidente Disponible en inglès en www.rsf.org

Reporteros sin Fronteras publica hoy, en cinco lenguas (francés, inglés, persa, chino y árabe), una "Guía práctica del blogger y el ciberdisidente". En el proyecto, que va destinado a ayudar a los internautas, y en particular a los que viven en los países represivos, a crear su publicación en línea y a darla a conocer conservando el anonimato, han participado especialistas en Internet y bloggers de las cuatro esquinas del globo.

¡Cree su blog, preserve su anonimato y evite la censura!

Los blogs apasionan, preocupan, molestan, interpelan. Algunos los desprecian, otros los consideran profetas de una nueva revolución de la información. De hecho, son una formidable herramienta para la libertad de expresión porque desatan las lenguas de los ciudadanos normales. En los países en que impera la censura, donde los medios de comunicación tradicionales viven a la sombra del poder, frecuentemente los bloggers son los auténticos periodistas. Son los únicos que publican una información independiente, destinada a disgustar a sus gobiernos, y muchas veces arriesgando la libertad. Reporteros sin Fronteras ha concebido esta guía para ayudarles, con consejos prácticos y astucias técnicas, a preservar su anonimato, a evitar la censura -identificando la técnica más adecuada para cada situación -, y también a crear un blog en buenas condiciones, darlo a conocer - optimizando su referencia en los buscadores -, y garantizar su credibilidad mediante el respeto de unas cuantas reglas éticas y periodísticas.

En esta guía han participado numerosos expertos de Internet, entre los que se encuentran el periodista norteamericano Dan Gillmor y los periodistas franceses de pointblog.com, así como algunos bloggers de las cuatro esquinas del mundo.

A partir del 22 de septiembre, la Guía práctica del blogger y el ciberdisidente está disponible en las librerías (a 10 euros). También será posible descargarla, en cinco lenguas (francés, inglés, chino, árabe y persa), en el sitio de Reporteros sin Fronteras: http://www.rsf.org

Gordon Campbell: On The End Game In Spain (And Other World News)

The coverage of international news seems almost entirely dependent on a random selection of whatever some overseas news agency happens to be carrying overnight... Here are a few interesting international stories that have largely flown beneath the radar this past week. More>>

Amnesty/Human Rights Watch: Appalling Abuse, Neglect Of Refugees On Nauru

Refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru, most of whom have been held there for three years, routinely face neglect by health workers and other service providers who have been hired by the Australian government, as well as frequent unpunished assaults by local Nauruans. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Censorship Havoc In South Africa’s State Broadcaster

Demands have included an order to staff that there should be no further negative news about the country’s President Jacob Zuma, and SABC camera operators responsible for choosing camera angles that have allegedly made the President ‘look shorter’ were to be retrained... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On A Bad Week For Malcolm Turnbull, And The Queen

Malcolm Turnbull’s immediate goal – mere survival – is still within his grasp... In every other respect though, this election has been a total disaster for the Liberals. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Bidding Bye Bye To Boris

Boris Johnson’s exit from the contest for Conservative Party leadership supports the conspiracy theory that he never really expected the “Leave” option to win the referendum – and he has no intention now of picking up the poisoned chalice that managing the outcome will entail... More>>

ALSO:

Mexico: Violence And Repression Of Teachers

The member organizations of Network for Peace express our indignation over the acts of repression that the Mexican State has carried out, through the police forces... In Chiapas, Guerrero and Oaxaca, the conflict has resulted in murders of teachers and civilians as well as hundreds of wounded and dozens of people arrested. More>>

ALSO:

Gordon Campbell: On Britain's Pleas For Mercy

So… Boris Johnson is promising that he won't be holding a snap general election, if he's chosen as the next UK Conservative Party leader. Reportedly, he is even making that promise a feature of his leadership campaign, since a vote for Boris would therefore mean (wink wink) that his colleagues wouldn't have to risk their jobs and face the wrath of the British public until 2020.
