Fiefdom of Speech

The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Article 19 of that states that everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference and everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression.

This right shall include freedom to seek, receive, and impart information on ideas of all kinds regardless of frontiers either orally, in writing, or in print, in the form of art or through any other media of his choice.

Concepts of freedom of speech can be found in early human documents, but let’s look at today’s world. Isn’t there a widening gap between what’s said and done? This documentary, “Fiefdom of Speech,” looks at how and why the self-acclaimed western guardians of human rights and civil liberties are trampling on their own people’s basic rights of seeing and hearing alternative views by taking Iranian channels off the airwaves.

The behavior of the UK government was simple straightforward panic, and it’s exactly the same in Spain and in France. They are shutting down the thing which is providing more accurate information. This is a kind of informational war which is waged against Iran; the matter is that several centers of power want to deprive people of alternative sources of information.

The main issue here is to prevent your information from getting to the American public. They can’t prevent you from broadcasting to Iran, but they can prevent you from getting your information to the American public because they know you’ll say things that Americans cannot say.

Munich-based media regulator BLM announced it was removing Press TV from the SES Astra satellite. Eutelsat S.A. stopped the broadcast of several Iranian satellite channels. Hong Kong-based AsiaSat took all Iranian channels off the air in East Asia. Spain’s top satellite company, Hispasat, ordered its satellite provider Overon to take Iranian channels Press TV and Hispan TV off the air.

Iran’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Gholam-Hossein Dehqani condemned the move as a blatant violation of international laws and the principle of freedom of speech. Addressing the 35th meeting of the UN Information Committee, he urged the UN body should provide the public with timely, unbiased, and transparent information. UN Information Committee passed a resolution called “Public Information Policies and Activities” condemning the Western medias’ hegemony over the world.
