Sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by email

A group of US-based organizations: Access, EFF, Free Press, Human Rights First, Mozilla, Reddit and Witness invite organizations and individual members to sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom. The Declaration, similar in spirit and word to the APC Internet Rights Charter, primarily targets US policy makers.

Following is the full text of the Declaration.

PREAMBLE
We believe that a free and open Internet can bring about a better world. To keep the Internet free and open, we call on communities, industries and countries to recognize these principles. We believe that they will help to bring about more creativity, more innovation and more open societies.
We are joining an international movement to defend our freedoms because we believe that they are worth fighting for.

Let’s discuss these principles – agree or disagree with them, debate them, translate them, make them your own and broaden the discussion with your community – as only the Internet can make possible.

Join us in keeping the internet free and open.

DECLARATION
We stand for a free and open Internet.

We support transparent and participatory processes for making Internet policy and the establishment of five basic principles:
Expression: Don’t censor the internet.
Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.
Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.
Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.
Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.

To SIGN the Declaration, individuals can go to the action pages at Access, CREDO, EFF and Free Press to add their name. Organizations should submit their organization or company name on the form available on the Declaration of Internet Freedom website (the initiative will then follow up with a confirmation of authority to sign the Declaration), which also offers a list of organizations that have already signed the Declaration.
