The revolution will be bloggerized?

The revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya marked a tremendus shift in, among other things, the way we perceive the role of social media.

Who would believe a few years ago that facebook, twitter and youtube would become powerful tools in the struggle for the protection of human rights, freedom of speech and social change? Very few people and certainly not their initial creators.

On Saturday, 30th of April, bloggers and journalists from Middle East will share their views and experiences with the digital community of Nicosia in a web meeting organised by the NGO Support Centre and the CCMC.

Where: CCMC, Nicosia Buffer Zone (next to Ledra Palace)

When: 30 April 2011
