The government’s policy to block the internet has become a debatable issue among societies whether it infringes on freedom of expression and freedom to seek, receive, and impart information or not. Therefore, this paper provides a description and analysis of the internet blockage issue according to Indonesia’s Legal and Human Rights perspective. The research on this paper was done using normative legal research. The results of the analysis show that Indonesia’s internet blockage policy infringes legal and human rights perspectives because there is no specific law that mentions the authority of the government to block the whole internet in riots caused by the spread of invalid information.
