Why Authoritarian Regimes Use Internet Blackouts
“Why do authoritarian regimes use internet blackouts?”
The internet allows for social movements to spread across wide distances. Authoritarian regimes view this as a threat, and will often use internet blackouts to attempt to subvert resistance. This weapon has been used against civilians all over the world, whether it be in Kashmir or Iran. This is Why Authoritarian Regimes Used Internet Blackouts.
With the ongoing demonstrations against the regime in Iran, I urge you to please do what you can to help Iranian women and ethnic minorities under oppression right now here.
