Over 138,000 of you worldwide have spoken out against the TPP’s global threat to Internet freedom.

That’s amazing and our voice is getting stronger – but as we gain momentum lobbyists are also ramping up the pressure for Internet censorship rules though closed-door meetings with our government representatives in Peru.

Now, we’re taking the next step: putting your message directly in decision-makers hands. If you can contribute to our campaign right now, we can run an attention-grabbing ad in the Washington Post demanding a fair deal for the Internet – right as key TPP decision-makers return from the latest round of TPP negotiations in Peru.

Please chip in what you can today, even just $5, to help us buy a hard-hitting print ad telling TPP negotiators that the Internet won’t back down until we get what we deserve – a fair deal.

We have a unique opportunity if we move fast – U.S. President Barack Obama just nominated a man named Michael Froman to oversee the TPP. He’ll be key to determining the future of this deal, and we need to act now to get our message to him.

This is our chance to show the world we are watching these closed-door processes, and we have a clear demand: a fair deal for creators and users.

If you donate now, we’ll be able to run a large ad in the Washington Post that will be seen by TPP decision-makers and global politicians, letting them know that they’re accountable to more than just Big Media lobbyists.

You can bet that Big Media lobbyists have already put in countless lunches with politicians and TPP negotiators to get what they want from the TPP: criminalizing all kinds of ways that you use the Internet everyday.

OpenMedia has just helped launched our new Fair Deal Coalition with 30 organizations worldwide standing together for the open Internet and our fundamental rights. Getting noticed by key decision-makers with this ad will show them that we’re serious, we’re developing a positive vision for fair copyright rules, and we won’t go away.

For the Internet and our future,

Chris, Steve, and Reilly – on behalf of your OpenMedia team
