TTIP will bring censorship for the internet and end net neutrality
1. Censorship of our Internet
The TPP Internet censorship plan is being finalized in secret meetings right now. We're teaming up with several other organizations and millions of people to block it.
Here's the situation: President Obama himself is in secretive meetings with key political figures and lobbyists in Asia to lock the Trans-Pacific Partnership's Internet censorship plan into place.
We know from leaked documents that this secretive plan will censor your use of the Internet and strip away your rights. If finalized, this plan would force ISPs to act as "Internet Police", monitoring our Internet use, censoring content, and removing whole websites.
It will give media conglomerates centralized control over what you can watch and share online.
Once key leaders finalize TPP Internet censorship plans it will be used to globalize censorship across the world. This may be our only chance to stop it. We urgently need your help to fight back. Add your voice right now and we'll project a Stop the Secrecy message on key buildings in Washington D.C. to ensure Obama, the media, and everyone else knows this censorship plan must be stopped.
2. Net Neutrality
The Federal Communications Commission is now moving to end net neutrality.
Three months ago, Demand Progress and RootsAction joined with allied groups to deliver a petition with a million signatures to the FCC in support of net neutrality -- to keep the whole Internet available to everyone.
Last night, the news broke that the FCC intends to blow us off and betray the principle of equal access to the Internet.
When he received those 1 million signatures in January, the FCC chairman said (awkwardly): "One of the great things about what the Internet does and why it needs to stay open, it enables people to organize and express themselves. A million people? That's boffo!"
Yesterday, Wheeler, a former cable lobbyist, revealed proposed new rules -- drafted by himself -- that would end net neutrality. Big corporations would pay for faster delivery of their content, making it difficult for smaller operations to compete.
Ironically, last night's news of the FCC's impending action emerged on the same day that Brazil created the world's first Internet bill of rights -- protecting exactly the democratic principles that Chairman Wheeler and his FCC cohorts are on the verge of assaulting.
