曾接死亡恐嚇 朱克伯格撰文撐《查理》

2015/1/9 — 18:17

Facebook創辦人朱克伯格(Mark Zuckerberg)就法國《查理周刊》血案撰文,闡述多元聲音的重要性,承諾為Facebook用戶營造可自由發聲的環境。

朱克伯格在Facebook稱,數年前Facebook拒絕移除與先知穆罕默德有關的內容,使他本人一度被一名巴基斯坦人死亡恐嚇。朱克伯格形容,當年沒有妥協,是因為Facebook相信多元聲音的重要性:即使偶爾會冒犯到人,多元聲音仍能令世界更好、更有意思。

朱克伯格形容,《查理周刊》事件與他本人被極端份子針對的經歷,都是一群極端主義份子試圖抹煞他人聲音的例子,但他「絕不容許此事在Facebook上發生」,承諾為用戶提供一個免於暴力與恐懼、可以自由發聲的平台。

不過較早前,Facebook的表現就惹來中國維權人士的質疑:Facebook先後刪除了藏族作家唯色上載的藏人自焚照後,並暫停了流亡異見作家廖亦武的Facebook帳號,無法更新。廖亦武及唯色質疑Facebook為進入中國市場,審查涉及中方敏感議題的內容。

朱克伯格發言全文如下:

A few years ago, an extremist in Pakistan fought to have me sentenced to death because Facebook refused to ban content about Mohammed that offended him.

We stood up for this because different voices -- even if they're sometimes offensive -- can make the world a better and more interesting place.

Facebook has always been a place where people across the world share their views and ideas. We follow the laws in each country, but we never let one country or group of people dictate what people can share across the world.

Yet as I reflect on yesterday's attack and my own experience with extremism, this is what we all need to reject -- a group of extremists trying to silence the voices and opinions of everyone else around the world.

I won't let that happen on Facebook. I'm committed to building a service where you can speak freely without fear of violence.

My thoughts are with the victims, their families, the people of France and the people all over the world who choose to share their views and ideas, even when that takes courage. ‪#‎JeSuisCharlie‬
