Internet Society statement on Internet blocking measures in Catalonia, Spain

ISOC has  published a statement expressing the  concern about measures
taken in Spain to block access to certain websites and, perhaps more
concerning, to require a top-level domain (TLD) operator to engage in
content monitoring and blocking.
This is a tense time politically in Spain with an independence
referendum having been called for October 1 in the Catalonia region
which the central Spanish government views as illegal. We do not want to
get involved in the politics of the situation, but are concerned by the
manner in which the Internet is being restricted. As we have repeatedly
stated, we do not see Internet blocking / shut downs as effective
measures and believe they cause far more collateral damage to the
economy and society.
