Article 25 of Vietnam’s most recent constitution, adopted in 2013, contains the following provisions:

“Citizens have the right to freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of press, access to information, assembly, association and demonstration. The use of these rights is provided by law.”

However, these freedoms, which are recognized by law, have been greatly restricted by censorship. Although citizens have this right legally, they cannot enjoy most of these rights, just like in other countries. Vietnam ranked 175th out of 180 countries in the 2018 World Press Freedom Index of Reporters Without Borders. …


Under normal circumstances, human rights need to improve as the ages develop, but in the world where human beings are, this is the opposite. Knowledge is older than human history. Knowledge is something that can be discovered. All dictators fear knowledge, from China to the United States. The disease of controlling knowledge does not belong to our age. Hitler’s Germany banning classical music, the banning of Einstein’s books, the murder of scientists living in Salem are the first examples that come to mind. The Catholic Church condemned Gnostic thinkers to death for their political interests. Galileo was convicted. Bruno was…


We want to describe the biggest workers’ strike in history that the world is not very interested in, and reported in just a few news outlets with two or three simple sentences. Unfortunately, most news channels and newspapers do not want to cover important events such as strikes in India, unless there are atrocities, vandalism, political interest or a political agenda. What is happening in many countries, which are considered to be the so-called third world countries, are not cared for by the world’s public eyes. What happened in Yemen, what happened in Nigeria, what happened in Uganda, what happened…


The trouble began because people were unhappy about a rise at the cost -4 cent hike to metro fares- to use the subway. Later protests progressed to the violence by police, harming protesters with chemical substances added into water, killing dozens and arresting thousands of people. So far, more than 24 people have died and more than 2,000 have been injured. Over 7,000 people have been arrested too. Public prosecutors in Chile are investigating more than 1,000 cases of alleged abuses — ranging from torture to sexual violence — by security forces during weeks of anti-government uprise. There are 1,000…


Until 1997, Hong Kong was ruled by Britain as a colony but then returned to China. Under the “one country, two systems” arrangement, it has some autonomy, and its people more rights. One of the principles of Basic Law is the right of Hong Kong to develop its own democracy, which the Chinese authorities promised not to intervene. But in recent years, Beijing has repeatedly reinterpreted Basic Law — now saying it has full jurisdiction over Hong Kong. Basic Law states that Hong Kong will “protect the rights and freedoms of its residents” for 50 years after the takeover. However…


Palantir Technologies is a public American software company that specializes in big data analytics. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, it was founded by Peter Andreas Thiel, Nathan Gettings, Joe Lonsdale, Stephen Cohen, and Alex Karp in 2003. The company’s name is derived from The Lord of the Rings where the magical palantír were “seeing-stones,” described as indestructible balls of crystal used for communication and to see events in other parts of the world.

US tech firm Palantir, known for supplying controversial data-sifting software to government agencies, has fetched a market value of nearly $22bn (£17bn) in its debut on the New…


On one side of the war, Shiite Houthi rebels, a religious minority in Yemen, backed by Iran, who now control the capital, Sanaa, and the second largest port city, Hudaydah. On the other side, the government forces of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and a coalition led by Saudi Arabia, which includes the United Arab Emirates and the United States. A Saudi-led air campaign has pounded Houthi strongholds in the north, and cut off aid and food, driving many people south, homeless in their own land.

The Houthi movement (known formally as Ansar Allah), which champions Yemen’s Zaidi Shia Muslim minority…


The Terrorist Content Regulation (TERREG), is based on the murder of 51 people during a shooting and a broadcast at the time in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March last year. This video starts to spread rapidly on the Internet. The European Parliament needs a set of laws that include law enforcement. These laws aim to prevent such content, especially on the internet. AP proposes TERREG in 2018 and discussions begin. …
