We're calling for more transparency in these secretive talks that would have ramifications for Internet users and citizens worldwide. Join us in making your voice heard at ProtectInternetFreedom.net.

Help call on the pro-Internet community to stand against these closed-door treaties and sign the Declaration for Internet Freedom.
