<p>Internet censorship has become a frequently used tool to silence dissent in times of political unrest. Blocking Facebook not only inhibits free speech and expression, it also impacts freedom of assembly by making it harder for protesters and other activists to organize. Time and time again, we see oppressive regimes block access to parts or all of the internet when they distrust or fear the people whom they govern. Democracy cannot exist in a place where free speech is censored, and this coup is clearly not democratic.</p>
