During a ceremony over the weekend in Kartal, Istanbul, Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spoke to a crowd of supporters where he addressed the ongoing campaign against the government and the new Internet Bill passed last week by the Parliament on Wednesday.
The bill is still waiting for Turkish President Abdullah Gül's approval to become law but has managed to stir controversy and has been criticized by opponents who claim it will restrict freedom of expression. If approved, the law will give the telecommunication presidency (TİB) the right to instantly block access to individual web pages as soon as an official complaint is filed, without waiting for a court order. Erdoğan has denied accusations that the bill would sanction censorship, arguing instead that it is being put into effect for a "safer Internet".
