New TPP Petition

Open Media have a new petition against TPP. They state that TPP is the biggest threat to the Internet and threatens to criminalise the use of common websites including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and even blogs.

"Normal online activities “could lead you to be cut off from the Internet, have your computer seized, be fined up to $150,000, or even land you in prison.”3This agreement threatens to rewrite national laws around the world. This is happening fast – twelve countries are already on board. A man named Michael Froman has just been appointed the U.S.’s new TPP chief negotiator.Michael Froman now has the unique ability to either put this secretive, global Internet criminalization plan to an end – or cement it into place for generations. Sign the petition to send him a messagenow, and share this with everyone!"

You can find the petition here - please sign it!
