Venezuela Ramps Up Internet Censorship

Many of the blocked sites are critical of the government

Venezuela has blocked over 370 internet portals and 43 internet domains. Of the sites, nearly 20% are news media and 19% are blog sites that are openly critical of President Maduro and his administration. The most high profile of the pages to be blocked was that of Columbian news channel NTN 24, which has been blocked by all internet providers across the country. The study came from the Institute for Press and Society of Venezuela, who were looking at web behaviour in the country from 2015 to 2016 and assessing freedom of speech on the Internet. An official from the society said that “criteria for blocking websites seem to correspond to Venezuelan political specificity”, but also noted that the study did not look further into internet censorship in the country.
