The notion of crime against humanity is more or less associated with the shed of human blood, but when I deeply evaluated the consequences that Internet blockages can provoke, I was convinced it’s time to redefine the notion of CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.
Internet is not just a tool to send and receive mails. It transcends all the social sectors from; Health, Banking, Import/Export, Education, Judiciary, defense etc. So any one government, individual or group of individuals that chooses to block the Internet from its citizens will be causing an irreparable damage to his own people.
Blocking the Internet in this age means stopping citizens from doing business, from communicating, from getting good education and health services, from traveling, from defending their basic rights etc.
I want to believe that blocking the Internet should be considered as crime against humanity.
