Because of the Internet...

The United Nations Human Rights Council passed a landmark resolution on July 5th, declaring freedom of expression on the Internet to be a human right. Even China, which censors its Internet through a firewall, backed the resolution.


The U.N. resolution inspired the iReport team to ask its community to send in a video explaining how the Internet changed their lives.   From connecting to families hundreds of miles away to sparking revolutions worldwide, iReporters filed dozens of stories on how their lives transformed because of the Internet.


Those video submissions were edited into the mash-up video piece:

From families to revolutions: life 'because of the Internet'


Check out the video and see all of the creative and innovative iReport submissions from around the world.
