|By Allison Orr|
The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) has released their annual report for 2006, entitled Open Access for All, reflecting the APC’s focus for 2006 on keeping Internet access for all on the international agenda. The APC was actively involved in getting the Internet Governance Forum to give access a priority.
"APC’s approach to open access is people-oriented. We believe that the information, content and tools found online should be available to everyone", said executive director Anriette Esterhuysen in her introduction.
In 2006 they also revised their Internet Rights Charter.
