Hi I'm Lindsey and this is your Weekly News Update from OpenMedia.
Just over a month ago, we asked you for your help. The StopTheTrap.net petition was gaining some pretty incredible momentum, and we had just printed and hand-delivered the over ninety-thousand names to key TPP negotiators in San Diego, California.
But industry lobbyists were—and still are—pushing really hard to keep all of their anti-Internet restrictions in the agreement, and we knew we would have to build out the structure of the pro-Internet movement in order to win.
Now, thanks to many of you who chipped in with a donation, we have an online hub ready.
Our two-step plan to grow our numbers and amplify our voices was to (1) launch a social media-infused website that rallies citizens around the world, and (2) to develop online tools to pressure leaders to reveal the secret drafts of the TPP.
Today I am pleased to announce for the very first time that openmedianow.net is ready. You built it, it's yours, go check it out.
