1998 Human Rights Act. Article 10: Freedom of Expression:
Article 10 protects your right to hold your own opinions and to express them freely ……
This includes the right to express your views via the internet.
The law also protects your freedom to receive information from other people by, for example, being part of an audience or reading a magazine.
Eileen Goldfinger has been a member of the Tropicana Co-Op Facebook page.
Recently she posted several brief comments advising readers that they can obtain information regarding the Co-Op sale by visiting this blog: Tropicanaforum.com. (Edited by her husband, Paul Goldfinger MD)
Yesterday she found herself locked out from that Tropicana Facebook site without any warning or explanation.
This morning Eileen called Clarice and learned that she was blocked with the approval of the Board because she suggested that others might like to read the Forum.
This cutting off of Eileen’s freedom of expression is something that one might find in a repressive society, not the USA.
For those of you who learned about the Forum from the Tropicana Facebook site, how do you feel about the Board now deciding what information you should acquire? They don’t want you to know about the Forum, so it makes you wonder, what are they at the Co-Op Board trying to hide?
