Blogging for a cause: Support #freespeech and Global Voices Advocacy @advox

A lot has been said about the strengths and weaknesses of the participatory web. In the end, the whole point of activity on the web ought to be about whether one has contributed even in the tiniest fashion to a better understanding of the things around us.

Many initiatives are promoting the positive actions of blogging. One of them, Zemanta organizes a "blogging for a cause" month at the end of which they will honor the causes that bloggers care the most about.

Here is my vote for Global Voices Advocacy. GV advocacy is a project for journalists, bloggers and activists worldwide to protect freedom of expression and free access to information online.
Why ? There are many reasons why GV Advocacy rocks but on a more personal level, GV advocacy featured two articles that detailed the current threat against free speech and bloggers in Madagascar. But it was equally as instrumental for bloggers and activists from every other parts of the world.

So yep, to all the bloggers out there, GV advocacy is worthy of your support.

This blog post is part of Zemanta’s “Blogging For a Cause” campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.
