This is International Right to Know Week, â€œdedicated to the promotion of freedom of information worldwide. The goal is to raise citizensâ€™ awareness level about their right of access to information under the control of government institutions.â€
Around the world, September 28th is celebrated as International Right to Know Day. This began in Sofia, Bulgaria at an international meeting of access to information advocates who proposed that September 28th be dedicated to the promotion of freedom of information worldwide. FOIA Advocates has a nice map displaying as well as what’s happening in each country to celebrate this week. How about submitting a FOIA request in honor of the week?
