ProXPN condemns the alleged continued moves by countries in frustrating gains made on the online platform.
IJmuiden, North Holland -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2013 -- In a report on the 20th of August 2013 by the Global Voices Advocacy (http://advocacy.globalvoicesonline.org/2013/08/20/netizen-report-gambia-to-censor-government-critics/) the Gambian National Assembly is said to have passed a bill that will likely cripple online free expression as the bill is seen to particularly target government critics.
According to the report, the bill criminalizes the spread of false news against the government or public officials, incitement of dissatisfaction against the government and acts that caricature abuse or make derogatory statements against the person or character of officials.
Quoted in the report Gambian Minister of Presidential Affairs Momodou Sabally said “If you cannot say anything good about the country then you should keep quiet.”
ProXPN sees this as a big blow to freedoms of expression to the Gambian people and goes to further encourage the use of VPN technology like the ProXPN VPN which provides amongst other services the ability to retain identity anonymity while utilizing the internet.
Through such services, the user gets an exclusive, secluded section to interact on while on the internet, securing the user even further from such location based restrictions and also guarantees a stress-free online experience.
Founded in 2009, proXPN is a leading VPN provider. Unlike other services they offer free accounts. Unlike the SaaS standard practice of time-based free trials, a proXPN free VPN account lasts for life and is limited only by connection speed. proXPN Premium account users enjoy unlimited connection speeds as well as advanced features such as PPTP compatibility for mobile devices and VPN Guard™, proXPN’s method of cutting all data transfer should the VPN connection fail, ensuring all data is encrypted during transmission even if there’s a system error. proXPN’s firm stance on the importance of individual privacy and security online mirrors public sentiment expressed during debates over SOPA and PIPA.
