Since 2007, Blog Action Day  has called upon bloggers around the world to hit the keys: One day, one topic, thousands of voices. The topic of this year is Human Rights – and the date is October 16. In joint effort, bloggers, podcasters and others will highlight the important global issue – and what better way of highlighting human rights than using one: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression” (Human Rights Declaration, Article 19).
On Global Voices we often discuss human rights, especially in relationship to censorship, surveillance and free speech online. We look forward to dedicating a day to thinking and talking about a topic that never seems to lose relevance.
So far, 1,377 blogs from 114 countries have registered to take part in Blog Action Day 2013. Register your blog today , and join the global conversation! The tags for this year are #BAD13, #HumanRights, #Oct16.
As usual , we will list the contributions of Global Voices authors around the world – stay tuned!
