The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) would allow companies doing business in the US to collect exact records of all of our online activities and hand them over to the US government, without ever notifying us that we are being watched. No warrant, no legal cause and no due process required. To make matters worse, the bill provides the government and corporations with blanket immunity to protect them from being sued for violation of privacy and other illegal actions.
Companies that we trust with our personal information, like Microsoft and Facebook, are key supporters of this billthat lets corporations share all user activity and content with US government agents without needing a warrant in the name of cyber-security — nullifying privacy guarantees for almost everyone around the world, no matter where we live and surf online.
Thousands of people from around the world responded to our survey, and the message is clear — 93% believe that access to the internet is a human right.
At this point, because of how integrated it is with our lives, yes, definitely. There is no effective freedom of speech without universal internet access.
* FUCK THE CENSORSHIP!
* Can’t stop the internet Big Bro!
