Promoting Net Neutrality in Cameroon


Promoting Net Neutrality in Cameroon

A capacity building seminar was organized in Douala-Cameroon on the 18th of July 2014 at hotel Lewat by I-Vision International with the theme: Promoting Net Neutrality through multi stakeholder capacity building and dialogue. Forty two participants were trained on the concept of Net Neutrality including its historical background, how to detect abuse, its importance and impact if not maintained.

This is one in a series of seminars to be organized in a project funded by the Web we Want campaign.

Excel Asama saluted the presence of the Regional delegate of the Post and Telecommuiation Mr Bassirou for his perpetual support and concern in the development of ICTs in Cameroon. The project manager of www.ici.cm  platform, Marc Ngiamba was also part of the show.

CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND THE INTERNET


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.
