The Online Hub: Weekly News Update from OpenMedia.ca
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.
With this online hub, our movement will have a space for news, information, and calls to action. And this hub will serve as the platform for online engagement tools to come, that will amplify citizen voices in targeted and strategic ways.
Thanks to those of you who chipped in or spread the word, we're well on our way to preventing the TPP from becoming an Internet trap.
For Internet freedom, this is Lindsey with OpenMedia International—now live at openmedianow.net—signing off.
