Stop the Secrecy

This is an amazing development!

On April 30th, 2014, over 3.1 million citizens and over 50 organizations united in a historic campaign to Stop The Secrecy around the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Our campaign culminated in our biggest and brightest projection in Washington D.C. last night - check out the images here.

Then, the next day, one of the most powerful members of the United States Congress, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) spoke out during a crucial Senate Hearing to call for an end to the extreme secrecy around the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

In twelve short hours, U.S. President Barack Obama will have returned home from his trip to Asia, where he spent the past week trying to strong-arm smaller nations into signing up to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). As he touches down in Washington, fond memories of home might lull him into thinking all is well with TPP proceedings on this side of the ocean. We’ll be there to disrupt that bliss with our biggest and brightest hard-hitting projection demanding an end to the extreme secrecy around the TPP.

Ars Technica: The FCC’s “fast lane” rule is awful for the Internet—just ask the FCC

In 2010, the U.S. FCC thought ending net neutrality was a terrible idea. Now they're whistling a different tune.

Why is pay-for-play not such a bad thing after all? An FCC official spoke with reporters on background today, meaning his comments can be paraphrased but not quoted directly. He said that the 2010 order didn't ban pay-for-priority access and that the negative news coverage of Wheeler's announcement is due to reporters misunderstanding the order.
