Empowering freedom of speech

DEAR EDITOR,

My name is Dacor Ratabwiy, and I am from Nauru.

I am writing to discuss a concerning issue that has persisted for decades.

In an age where information is power, we must uphold the fundamental right of every individual to access government information freely.

Transparency is the cornerstone of democracy; however, barriers too often prevent citizens from exercising their right to know.

We must advocate for greater transparency and accountability within our governments, ensuring that citizens have unrestrained access to information that affects their lives.

By empowering individuals with knowledge, we enable them to make informed decisions and actively participate in civic life.

Moreover, the right to access government information is not just a legal imperative, it is a fundamental aspect of freedom of speech.

When information is withheld or hidden, it stifles public discourse and undermines democracy.

We must educate and raise awareness about our rights, empowering individuals to demand transparency from their governments.

Let us work together to break down the barriers to information access and empower every citizen to exercise their right to freedom of speech.

In doing so, we strengthen our democracy and ensure a more just and equitable society for all.

Sincerely,

Dacor Ratabwiy

Republic Of Nauru
