Demostrating the power of Web2.0 in the prevention of socio political crisis

Demostrating the power of Web2.0 in the prevention of socio political crisis

Prevention Talk is an initiative of I-Vission International to demonstrate the power of Web2.0 in the prevention of socio cultural and political crisis.

From the summit of Kilimanjaro in Kenya, the heart of Yamoussoukro in Côte d’Ivoire, the pyramids of Egypt, the mines of Soweto and the depth of the Niger Delta basin, it is evident that; where there is no open, transparent and participative conversation between citizens, civil society organizations and governments, the risk of an explosion is very high.

Prevention Talk steps in at the very initial stage to freeze the unknown before it’s too late. We do this by engaging citizens in a multi stakeholder and democratic conversation on burning social issues of common interest. This process creates awareness on national issues and stimulates citizens’ participation in nation building.

Our inspiration is drawn from the concepts of social mediation and citizens’ journalism as tools for a peaceful open and democratic construction process.

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.
