Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Amnesty International campaign to combat censorship

Amnesty International is launching a campaign to oppose censorship on the internet:

Amnesty International, with the support of The Observer UK newspaper, is launching a campaign to show that online or offline the human voice and human rights are impossible to repress.

The Irrepressible site has a pledge on internet freedom that you can sign online. You can also get a snippet of code that will “publish irrepressible fragments of censored material” on your own blog or other web site:

(While our usual focus here at FGI is on U.S. government information, we are interested in issue of freedom on information world-wide.)
