We are SaveTheInternet.eu: activists fighting for Net Neutrality in Europe. AUA!
After huge victories in India and the US, now it's Europe's turn to fight for net neutrality! We are a group of digital rights experts leading the fight. We can explain how net neutrality works in Europe, why this fight matters, and how you can help.
Our current law is full of loopholes. This summer, it's up to the European telecoms regulators, BEREC, to interpret that law. Their decision could make or break net neutrality.
We need a huge response from netizens supporting net neutrality, or else we’ll be drowned out by lobbyists. Your support is invaluable, and only takes a minute or two:
message our regulators at www.savetheinternet.eu.
- Thomas Lohninger, AKVorrat
- Joe McNamee, European Digital Rights
- Estelle Massé, AccesNow
- Rejo Zenger, Bits of Freedom
- Agnès de Cornulier, La Quadrature du Net
We will start answering questions at 14:00 PM CEST / 8:00 AM EST, and we'll stick around for at least two hours.
UPDATE: Wow, the response has been great. We'll stick around a while longer. So keep the questions coming! ;)
UPDATE#2: Our US partners from Fight For the Future are joining soon. They can help explain this to American redditors as the west coast wakes up.
We also point to our Day of Action the Internet Slowdown day on 28. June. Check it out at http://www.savenetneutrality.eu !
UPDATE#3: We are signing off for today. But it was real fun with you guys, let's do this again. Please participate in the consultation on https://savetheinternet.eu, it only takes 1 minute. Our friends from Fight For the Future will be around for a while longer, but its getting late in Europe.
