Established in 1994 by Howard Jonas to expose and combat censorship and human rights abuses around the world, DFN attempts to "fulfill the promise of the Internet" by publishing banned and censored material. The core of the site is a collection of banned material from seventeen countries, arranged by region and frequently updated. Among the dissident authors featured at the DFN website are Bao Ge (China), Wei Jingsheng (China), Salima Ghezali (Algeria), Raul Rivero (Cuba), Pius Njawe;(Cameroon), and Koigi wa Wamwere (Kenya). Additional resources at the site include a News section highlighting recent events of interest to free press advocates.
