Committee to Protect Bloggers

来源: Committee to Protect Bloggers

The Committee to Protect Bloggers is devoted to the protection of bloggers worldwide with a focus on highlighting the plight of bloggers threatened and imprisoned by their government. We support the right of bloggers, regardless of professional status or engagement in activism, to speak and we do so regardless of their ethnicity, national origin, religion or political beliefs.

For a more detailed look at what we do, please read the Committee to Protect Bloggers Mission Statement. If you are a Facebook user, we encourage you to also join our CPB Cause page and if you use Twitter, follow our updates.

The Committee also runs the Blogswana project, a blogging training program in the southern African nation of Botswana. We have set up a Botswana pilot project ChipIn account for funding.

The Committee was formed in January of 2005. It went on hiatus in mid-2006 and was reactivated in August of 2007. Curt Hopkins is the editor. It is a 501(c)3 U.S. tax-exempt non-profit corporation.

The CPB site is hosted by Free Kareem, a leader in the “creative disruption” of complacent free speech organizations and an advocate for the release of the imprisoned Egyptian blogger.
