Mexico: ARTICLE 19 statement on disappeared students

ARTICLE19 is calling for a prompt, independent and effective investigation, conducted at the highest level, into the disappearance of the 43 students in Iguala, Guerrero state. Whilst the exact cause of the disappearance is yet to be fully established, it is imperative that the Mexican authorities must uphold their obligations under international human rights law.

Right to Be Forgotten: ARTICLE 19 calls on Google and Data Protection Watchdogs to protect free speech

Today, ARTICLE 19 is giving evidence before Google’s Advisory Council on the so-called right to be forgotten. The Advisory Council was set up in the aftermath of the Google Spain v Costeja judgment, in which EU’s top court ruled that individuals had the right to request Google and other search engines operating in the European Union ('EU') to remove links to results generated by a search for their name. The Advisory Council has been holding a series of hearings across Europe in Madrid, Rome, Paris, Warsaw, Berlin and now London. The Council will then report on its findings.
