A number of writers have discussed the potential of advanced media technologies to support a more inclusive, democratic society that prioritizes values such as community and the social good. Enzensberger points out that we cannot assume that the potential of the technology will simply unfold on its own in a capitalist society. This discussion paper is designed to invite participation to share experiences of recent muzzling of Canadian government scientists, librarians and archivists and advocacy strategeis for communication rights to support democracy in Canada.
