Ve Sin Filtro

About Ve Sin Filtro

Since 2014, the VE sin Filtro project has been documenting internet censorship in Venezuela, along with other online violations of human rights. By monitoring the state of the internet connection in Venezuela, it keeps track of internet outages in all regions of the country.

The project sheds light on how almost all major Venezuelan news sites are blocked within the country, as well as the poor and unreliable connections, exposing state-sponsored digital attacks, shutdowns and social media blocks. The latter are often timed to events and news that the government deems inconvenient as well as to hide other human rights violations.
