Right To Know Day 2011
Sep 28, 2011

“The Right to Know Day” is a way to focus on an important right that we should all have. The freedom of information movement and communities all over the world worked hard to get the world to focus on our right to obtain information from the government and others about things that matter to us - things about ourselves like our health records. Our right to know also extends to other important facets about our day to day life - like what is in the water we drink or the air we breathe. Governments and private companies collect much of this information but don’t share it with us or give us access to it. We celebrate the right to know day so that we can focus the attention of governments and other leaders on the need to ensure that citizens like ourselves have access to information. When we have the information we need, we can shape our lives better.
