Defend our internet freedoms

Todas as versões desta matéria: [English] [Português do Brasil]

The Internet and our democracy are under attack. Years of lobbying efforts from telecommunications interests can end the freedom of expression and communication we have enjoyed on the Internet. The Civil Rights Framework for Internet in Brazil, legislation that can protect democracy in the network, is now in the hands of Congress.

Will the government allow lobbyists from Globo television network to write law, modify the text, and implement instant censorship in the Internet Marco Civil law?

October 23, Sao Paulo

The Civil Rights Framework for Internet in Brazil can be approved in a decisive vote on Monday. We, citizens and Internet users, fear that the passage of this legislation, the most positive proposal to protect Internet freedoms so far, could include a mechanism for instant censorship. Going against the legal foundation for a truly free Internet.

Time is short. People’s mobilization is crucial to defend our Internet!

The Civil Rigths Framework for Internet in Brazil is a project built by an unprecedented collaborative process between the state and society, and has become a model for the most progressive legislation in the world, a true reference among experts. Designed to protect the freedom of the Internet and its users through the guarantees of net neutrality.

But corporate lobbying has stalled the law in Congress for years.

After the revelations made by Edward Snowden of massive spying on cyberspace and politics, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff brought the Civil Rights Framework for the Internet back to the table, under Congressional urgency rules. With such urgency, the process has lost the transparency. There is now no way for us to follow the possible changes that might still be made.

Keeping paragraph 2 of Article 15 in the text to be voted, shows that corporate interests are still being privileged. This paragraph allows for the removal of internet contents, without any court order. In practice, it will become preemptive censorship for any content that is troublesome to the political and economic powers, since it leaves the possibility for agreements made behind closed doors wide open, between governments, service providers and media corporations.

Opening the door to censorchip is a breaking with NET NEUTRALITY, strongly backed by President Dilma, and we fear that such amendments may go further, hurting our freedom of to access information and express ourselves on the Internet, transforming the Internet Civil Rights Framework into legislation that goes against the population.

We call on everyone who supports and loves our lnternet freedoms, to contact their representatives in Congress before the vote, and to ask for rejecting paragraph 2 of Article 15, or any other change in the original text that can go against the interests of Internet citizens.

The Civil Rights Framework for the Internet in Brazil was built by civil society, and we will not allow them to inject censorship into it at the last minute. Not in our name.

Suggestion of email message:

Caros deputados, boa tarde.

Diante da votação do Marco Civil da Internet (PL nº 2.126/2011) que ocorrerá nos próximos dias, como cidadão atento à política, venho respeitosamente por meio deste email pedir que vote favoravelmente ao Projeto de Lei nos termos do seu texto original e discutido com a sociedade, ressaltando nele a importância da neutralidade da Rede, sem nenhuma restrição a esta, e suprimido o § 2º do Artigo 15, que, no nosso entendimento, ameaça a liberdade de expressão em nosso País.

O chamado “Marco Civil da Internet” pode representar mundialmente um protagonismo do Brasil (e do nosso Legislativo Federal) no trato cívico e democrático do tema.

Desde já agradeço.
