Many countries give lip service to human rights by allowing what appears to be freedom to its citizens. They have a democratic government, independent newspapers, and access to the Internet. However, as soon as the government is threatened they close the newspapers and shut off access to the Internet.

So, what are human rights?
Health, Life, Liberty? Sure.

Food, Water, Shelter? With out question.

Freedom of the press? Absolutely.

Freedom of Internet access? Yes.
So is freedom of information a human right?
