1. Clever Mark, when Nato bombs tv stations and Brodcast towers, it is a heroic act. When Al Qaeda does it it is terror. When Putin's news is slanted towards Russia the OSCE calls it propaganda, and when The Prime Minster of Turkey shuts down twitter and Youtube after a video is published of the Turkish Cabinet planning to invade Syria, the OSCE are silent on the matter of Soverignty and teritorial integrity.

    Silent?

    VIENNA, 27 March 2014 – By blocking access to social media platforms Turkey deliberately disregards the fundamental right to freedom of expression and freedom of the media, Dunja Mijatović, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media said today.

    “Within one week, access to Twitter and YouTube has been blocked in Turkey,” Mijatović said. “A regulator exercising censorship by blocking is unacceptable in democracies, and it breaches numerous OSCE and other international standards that Turkey has committed to.”

    On 27 March Turkey’s telecommunications authority (TIB) blocked YouTube in the country.

    “I call on the authorities to preserve the free flow of information and media freedom both online and offline, and immediately restore access to YouTube. I also urge TIB to reinstate Twitter services without delay following yesterday’s court decision annulling the ban on the website,” Mijatović said.

  5. The OSCE hypocrisy never ceases. It’s now second nature to these people, while on top all these rules are swept under the carpet but now they are no longer in that position, its high moral ground, transparency and stop using the press for propaganda. I

  6. Summarizing her position "on the issue as a whole," the OSCE official noted that the organization's participating states, via the Helsinki Act, "agreed to be bound by and fulfill their obligations as set forth in the international declarations and agreements in the area of free expression, including international agreements on human rights."
