By Marta Cooper / 25 August, 2011
As Twitter, Facebook and Research in Motion prepare to meet the Home Secretary, Index on Censorship and other human and digital rights campaigners ask to be included in discussions on social media blackouts
Don’t miss the summer issue of Index on Censorship magazine. As Europe prepares for the 25th anniversary of the wall’s demolition in November, Index on Censorship looks at how the continent has changed. Author Irena Maryniak explores the idea of a new divide that has formed further east. Writers include Polish journalist Konstanty Gebert, German crime writer Regula Venske and Helen Womack from Moscow. We also hear from Generation Wall – the young people who have grown up in a free eastern Europe.
