Pssst India... Internet shutdowns are costly, and often counter-productive.  http://bit.ly/2M3eIqs 

For context, here's the news out of Kashmir (via @globalnews)  https://globalnews.ca/news/5727613/india-disputed-kashimir-article-370/?utm_campaign=the_download.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=75391469&_hsenc=p2ANqtz--rSsZdMbJvDaskosJTkQWY9KX-8HcKZuCtC5i8CjvTEBo2qIq0pkiTvC7w6fXz8Jy5BwjO5312oCsO5seRRlR154e1dC0NHQc94NElxLsRmrdOn0E&_hsmi=75391469 

This also applies to Istanbul, which has given itself powers to oversee all online content in Turkey. (via @Reuters)  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-turkey-internet-censorship/turkey-moves-to-oversee-all-online-content-raises-concerns-over-censorship-idUSKCN1UR539?utm_campaign=the_download.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=75391469&_hsenc=p2ANqtz--rSsZdMbJvDaskosJTkQWY9KX-8HcKZuCtC5i8CjvTEBo2qIq0pkiTvC7w6fXz8Jy5BwjO5312oCsO5seRRlR154e1dC0NHQc94NElxLsRmrdOn0E&_hsmi=75391469 

And don't forget Russia. Moscow wants to pull an iron curtain over the internet.  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613138/russia-wants-to-cut-itself-off-from-the-global-internet-heres-what-that-really-means/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1565105687
