Letter to Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman and CEO of Facebook, Regarding Human Rights Considerations Before Entering China Market | Human Rights Watch

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

We are writing to express our concern about the human rights implications of Facebook's possible entry into the Chinese market, particularly in light of Adam Conner's quote in the Wall Street Journal stating that the company may be allowing "too much...free speech." We urge that, as you work to define the terms of your entry, you do not collude with Chinese authorities in censoring political speech or helping them retaliate against Facebook users who want to benefit from the openness and connectivity that Facebook promotes.
