> As you may know APC is organising an event at the UN Human Rights Council on Friday, 1-3 pm CET (12am-2pm GMT).
> 
> As most of us won't be in Geneva we have set up remote participation, so everyone of us can join. You will be able to see and hear the event live as well as posting comments and questions to the panel.
> 
> Please see below for more instructions on how to participate.
> 
> The event is a part of APC's CONNECT YOUR RIGHTS campaign and will address freedom of expression on the Internet, including criminalisation of online expression, blocking and manipulating of internet content, invasion of privacy and data protection, unlawful surveillance and limitations on internet access and women's human rights on the internet. 
> 
> For more information, including speakers, see the attached flyer and don't hesitate to contact us for further information.
