> Overview from EDRI-gram:
> Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF) is looking to take the Wikileaks path
>> and will start accepting the publication of censured documents in
>> October 2012 on a new dedicated platform.
>> Called “We Fight Censorship”, the RSF platform will distribute censored
>> documents received from journalists, bloggers or political dissidents in
>> order to offer a “digital shelter” for those who, by revealing such
>> documents, might be persecuted, condemned, imprisoned or even
>> “Thanks to a digital ultra-secured safe, the Internet
>> users will be able to provide the organisation, anonymously, with
>> documents affected by censorship or interdicted for publication” stated
>> RSF who also added that the documents will not be published as such but
>> put into context and the contents included will be verified to ensure
>> the accuracy and correctness of the shared information.
>> RSF already organised in 2010 an “anti-censure shelter” space for the
>> protection of political dissidents, journalists and bloggers threatened
>> by authorities, which allows them to surf and communicate rather safely
>> by using various ciphering and anonymization tools.
>> On 21 July 2012, the association organised a hackathon in order to test
>> the reliability of the platform and the security of the document
>> transmission system.
