Canadians launch platform to defend Internet freedom worldwide

To meet this and a growing list of international threats to the open Internet, OpenMedia is launching a new social-media infused website that will be a hub for citizens around the world, providing the international Internet freedom movement with a platform to pressure leaders everywhere.

OpenMedia Executive Director Steve Anderson says: “We can’t put all our energy into stop-gap measures here in Canada and craft a positive vision for our digital economy while our digital rights are eroded abroad by lobbyists and un-elected trade representatives working in almost total secrecy. That's why we are taking a massive step to launch the OpenMedia Internationalbeta website.”

An OpenMedia supporter on Facebook said of the new website recently, “citizens across the world are fighting back and with your help [...] you're giving us that chance and the tools to stop this”.
