Approximately 2000 persons marched against government censorship of the Internet on Saturday, the 17th of July, 2010. The protest march started in the popular Taksim Square and ended in the Galatasaray square with a press declaration that called for the abolishment of Law No. 5651 which forms the basis of the Turkish Internet Censorship Infrastructure.
I was on the frontline with fellow civil society representatives and the participation to the protest was better than we expected. Media presence was also brilliant and both local and international press representatives followed the protest march. (Dr. Yaman Akdeniz)
