In this gripping documentary, filmmaker Nicholas de Pencier examines the complex global impact that the Internet has had on matters of free speech, privacy, and activism. Based on the book by Ron Deibert, it is the story of how the Internet is being controlled and manipulated by governments across the world in order to censor and monitor their citizens. As they battle for control of cyberspace, ideas of citizenship, privacy, and democracy are challenged to the core.

Everyone should see it! It will really open your eyes to the human- rights abuses in the countries you have not even considered or knew about, incl your own! Snowden brought our attention to the mass surveilance of own citizens even in the Western Countries! This video will show what actually happens in action where the civil and the human rights are abused by the police and its govts! The opposition govt members, the journalists, the peaceful activists, monks, many of which are not spared from beatings, torture, imprisonment, even death, depending on which country! China, Tibet, Brazil, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Syria, etc etc! The citizens are spied on all the internet sites, cell phones, laptops, etc with devastating consequences to the users! Canada, Sweden, US, etc etc all spy on its citizens.. We in the West are only lucky that our own govts have not bombed our own journalists, human -rights advocates, etc! What will happen if we ever get the authoritarian govt? Internet is a blessing and a curse, it seems!
