For Opposition parties in SE Asia, internet freedom is vital to their survival and growth within a pluralist and competitive political environment. Too quickly digital communications have become digital shackles on political expression and organization. Opposition International joins other groups in calling for greater internet freedom. The goal is not just internet freedom for it’s own technical sake, but for the mobilization of political choices to bring genuine competition in governance and institutional reform. Break the digital shackles that bind the Opposition in South East Asia. Kudos to the Philippines for having the freest internet in the region.
