UN Report Discusses the Importance of Artistic Freedom -- National Coalition Against Censorship

I have been following National Coalition Against Censorship for many years.  Putting aside the fact that I enjoy creating art, just at the basic level of being human, censorship is a devastating tool to wield power and to ensure that people are kept in emotional and intellectual darkness.

At the NCAC site is a brief summary of a very recent UN report that posits (correctly, in my opinion) that artistic expression is a human right.  Read the NCAC article and access the original UN report here.

Music was banned in Mali?!  Censorship must be defeated, and humanity must support and protect the arts and artists.  Those who wield power and support censorship must be defeated so as to prevent humanity from reverting back to the Dark Ages.
