Amnesty International is currently working with the OpenNet Initiative (ONI) to help raise awareness of internet censorship around the world. Amnesty International is launching a campaign to show that online or offline the human voice and human rights are impossible to repress.

The aim of the ONI is to document empirically patterns of Internet content filtering and surveillance worldwide behind national firewalls over an extended period of time. Its reports have documented the scope, scale and sophistication of numerous filtering regimes worldwide, and have helped verify the use of commercial filtering technologies that are used to underpin these regimes. The ONI's flash map of global filtering shows the results of these investigations.
