On 3 April, the European Parliamant voted a text
in favour of Net Neutrality, protecting a free and open Internet, but
Member States gathered at the Council of Ministers have come back on the
progress made. The legislation process continues in the form of
negotiations to lead in an agreement between the European Parliament,
European Commission and the Council of the European Union called trialogue.
In order to
protect and guarantee all the advances from last year's vote, it is fundamental and urgent to act. To preserve our right to use an
Internet based on principles of non-discrimination and liberty, we must
contact our representatives in the European Parliament and urge them to
safeguard Net Neutrality against the recommendation of governments and Telecommunication Industry lobbies.
Documents show that advances made by the European Parliament are being dismissed by the European Council. We must act now to save the Internet!
and quickest way to contact your MEPs is to use the Piphone, but there
are other ways, described on La Quadrature du Net's wiki. An example of
conversation is available here.
If you choose the Piphone, a random Member of
the “Industry” (ITRE) or of the “Consumer(IMCO) committee, from any country, will be
selected unless you select a country in the form below.
Whatever happens, don't forget the basic rules of courtesy and common sense. Whether
you agree or disagree with the individual answering the line, and
whatever the views of other members of her/his political group, don't
give a negative image of people who are advocating with the same purpose
as you. Thank you <3
