Our petition iniative made it to the Sunday Nation! Here is the link to the article by Lilian Ochieng’.

However, the article got some few things wrong which we would like to clarify.

The article got the name of Centre for Intellectual Property & Information Technology wrong. Other, clarification is that m/s Marcela Sinda is the Project lead of this petition initiative.
Lastly, Centre for Intellectual Property & Information Technology is headed by Dr. Isaac Rutenberg.

Sign our Petition to Stop the Ratification of the African Union Convention on the Confidence and Security in Cyberspace

African Union AU

The Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law,(CIPIT), a Centre under Strathmore Law School has started a campaign to oppose the ratification of the African Union Convention on Cyber space (AUCC).

The AUCC significantly restricts on-line freedom of expression and stifles the growth of the on-line business community. In essence, it unacceptably limits fundamental internet freedoms.

We would like you to participate in petitioning the African Union to stop the ratification process. Kindly sign our petition linked here. It is a simple 1 minute process, and the petition contains some of the reasons why we oppose ratification.

Also, follow us on twitter @aucyberspace and on Facebook . Feel free to post your comments.
