Founder Aseem Trivedi’s website — www.cartoonistagainstcorruption.com — was banned during Anna Hazare’s movement.

‘Save Your Voice (SYV)’ is a movement against Web censorship and its main demand is the repealing of the Information Technology Act, said SYV founders, Aseem Trividi, a cartoonist, and Alok Dixit, a journalist, on Monday. Trivedi’s website — www.cartoonistagainstcorruption.com — was banned during Anna Hazare’s movement.

Trivedi said: “Mumbai police banned the website without any prior notice and cases of ‘treason’ were also filed. The website was banned without a judicial order and I haven’t received an explanation about the crime committed.”

Sunil Abraham, executive director, Centre for Internet and Society, said the private sector does not protect the freedom of expression.
