For the first time, the leaders of the G8 developed countries are going to discuss internet policy. Instead of promoting net neutrality and user privacy and combating online censorship, the French government has locked civil society out of these conversations, while inviting CEOs — some of whom paid $100,000 for their seat at the table — who are pushing policies like strict intellectual property enforcement, which will line corporate pockets while curtailing our digital rights.
Unless we speak out now, decisions about internet policy are going to be made at the highest levels without our voices represented. Pleasesign this urgent petition calling on the G8 to adopt citizen-centered internet policies, which we’ll deliver at a press conference to the world media on Monday in Paris.
