Trade Ministers from the 12 Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries are recklessly pushing to finalize the biggest and most secretive agreement in the history of the world.1

The binding plan will make our Internet more censored, expensive, and policed on a global scale.2

What’s worse, recent leaks3 show that Internet users everywhere will be facing new criminal penalties, and see the public domain robbed–all without ANY public consultation.

This scheme is at a make-or-break point -- but it’s only an agreement if we agree to it.

We have a chance to stop the TPP’s censorship plan before they make it law by sending a message today: don’t overwrite our laws to censor the Internet.

Our laws should be developed democratically for the benefit of us all, not just those with the most money and the loudest voices. In fact, tens of thousands of Internet users have already crowdsourced a positive vision for our Digital Future.4

Tell your Trade Minister today: don’t overwrite our laws to censor the Internet!
