I guess if you're in the middle of an uprising and your net connection is cut off you'd see it differently.
However, cutting off or controlling communications in such situations has been a standard military tactic for ages. Taking control over or disabling TV, radio, telephone or telegraph is pretty standard and if you have no telephone or (cable) TV you have no internet.
From my last statement, you could also extrapolate that cable TV and telephone services should also be a basic 'human right' since they're required as an internet transmission medium but nobody is pleading that case now are they? ;)
