This morning I heard on the radio that Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters Without Borders http://www.rsf.org/ ) is lauching today the first International Online Free Expression Day, a worldwide cyber demonstration against government censorship on the Internet.

Why is it important? A total of 63 cyber-dissidents are currently in jail worldwide for using their right to free expression on the Internet. China continues to be the world’s biggest prison for online journalists and bloggers.


You can help! To denounce government censorship of the Internet and to demand more online freedom, please come and protest: TODAY AND TODAY ONLY (from 12th March 11 am to 13th March 11 am Paris time) you can take part in the 24-hour online demonstration that will take place on Tien An Men square in Beijing and in one of the nine countries that have been identified as "enemies of the internet": China, Burma, Vietnam, North Korea, Egypt, Cuba, Erythrea, Tunisia and Turkmenistan .

Just click on http://www.rsf.org/ and follow the prompts: you will chose an alias (your virtual character), a slogan for your banner and the city where you wish to demonstrate. We need huge numbers! The blogging community can make a difference. Please relay this appeal and take action.

(please note you cannot action before 11 a.m. Paris time)

Kate, that's a lovely collection of sombreros stacked for folks to purchase and keep the sun from their heads! Very creative and fun touch.

RuneE said...

I need to have something on my head at all time when I'm out of doors. Maybe I should look a bit further, though...

Great post!

Isadora said...

Just what you need to make you feel glad - a large rimmed, colorful hat to wear of dance around or smootch behind or

Love it :)

Anne-Berit said...

That`s a great H-post,lovely hats:o)

Jim said...

either one, I like the one in the upper right.

Peter said...

The sombrero would not be the best choice here with the windy weather we have at the moment! When will we see the photo with you and the sombrero? ... or did you just buy a hat?

Daryl E said...

Your H's made me smile .. great

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Wonderful collage of hats!! Great H!
Have a nice day:)

Andrea said...

Hats is a good one. You found some interesting hats too.

Kitty said...

These are functional for where you're living!
Hereabouts, you rarely see anyone wearing a real 'hat'. A formless stocking-like thing or cap, yes.

Hat, no.

Petunia said...

Here in Bergen (Norway) it is not so much sun, but I can use it as an umbrella, can't I???
Great H post:D

Jilly said...

Wow, that hat (sombrero) top right is magnificent. Wonderful collage, Kate.

hpy said...

How handsome anyone wearing that black or that blue one could be!

Since being in Mexico, I found a website that lets me watch live tv stations from the USA and other great movies and shows for free. I LOVE free! It's at

http://www.movieshowcase.tv

There's so much good stuff there, that I can't begin to tell you.

Anyway, instead of subscribing to Megacable, I watch everything on the internet.

Gordon said...

Nice collection of hats; I could do with one of these at the moment - the outside sun is so fierce; we're in the middle of a heat-wave.

Katney said...

Sombreros! Definitely sombreros.

Nikon said...

Sombreros - & like many have already said - the top right photo has the best ones.

Sailor Girl said...

Hombre! Hombre!!! Arriba!!! Arriba!!!! Ai-ai-ai-ai!!!!!!

Suzi-k said...

....or HEADGEAR! Either way, they are stunning. I bought an ENORMOUS sombrero in Spain when I was 14, I even got on the front page of the local newspaper wearing it when we arrived in Capetown! Wonder what ever happened to it??? Are you taking one home with you?

Neva said...

I love the Mexican hats....good choice!! I wish I had the need for a good sombrero!!!
