Only five days after the World Day Against Cyber Censorship, the Lebanese government decided to keep up with its neighbors in the Arab World. Its first attempt was with the Lebanese blogger Khodor Salameh, aka jou3an -hungry in Arabic- because of a post he wrote about the president. They demanded him to change his tone, close his blog or just stick to poetry or he might be prosecuted!
I’m speechless and furious!!!
