May 06, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

The banned or censored words of five dissidents from China, Kenya, Algeria, Cuba and Cameroon were the first to be posted on a new Web site displaying the works of political activists. The Web site, www.dfn.org, is published by the Digital Freedom Network, an international partnership founded in the New York area to fight censorship and protect human rights. The group's executive director, Bobson Wong, said the collection of speeches, newspaper articles, essays, poetry and letters written from prison will come from organizations such as the Committee to Protect Journalists, Index on Censorship and Reporters Sans Frontieres.
