(Seoul, Korea) -- The opening session of the Asia Internet Rights Conference begins today and will last until Saturday afternoon.

Fifty participants from Asia, Europe, and the Americas are gathering on the campus of Chungang University to discuss a number of issues related to internet governance, activism, and international solidarity.

"The Asia Internet Rights Conference will help prepare us for an era of government suppression of the internet. Internet users are in serious danger of losing many of their rights, including freedom of expression. So it is urgent for progressive Asian media organizations to strengthen international solidarity links through this conference," said Oh Byong-il, executive director of the Korean Progressive Network (Jinbonet), the host of the conference.
