Governments around the world, in collaboration with social media companies, are implementing massive restrictions on Internet access.

In late April 2017, Google announced the implementation of new algorithms aimed at limiting or blocking access to the World Socialist Web Site and other left wing, anti-war and progressive websites. Similar measures to deny Internet users access to revolutionary socialist and oppositional information and commentary have been implemented by Facebook and Twitter.

The Socialist Equality Party fully supports the lead taken by the World Socialist Web Site in exposing this conspiracy to censor the Internet and issued a call for the formation of an International Coalition of Socialist, Anti-War and Progressive Websites to fight back against this attack on freedom of speech and basic democratic rights.
