Tunisia Bloggers Protest Government Censorship

Bloggers in Tunisia are debating an online protest against government censorship. The campaign known in English as Action Post Blank called for bloggers to only post a protest graphic on their website.

The article also discusses online action by the Tunisian government to censor websites:
"Numerous bloggers complained in 2008 of intrusions and blockages of websites by the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI). Many Tunisians also accuse ATI of supporting bans on a number of popular websites. It was this issue that prompted journalist Ziad El Heni to file a lawsuit against the agency, accusing it of blocking the social networking website Facebook before it was re-opened last August based on an order from the President."
