Group Monitors Free Speech Violations
A group of Canadian journalists spearheaded a group to counter this challenge, that eventually became the International Freedom of Expression Exchange.
IFEX is now a "... global network of action and information-sharing, members gain influence, leverage and authority. IFEX is in a position to bring real change to a global situation where more than half of the world’s nations violate the principles of Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," according to the group's website.
