How the ITU could put the internet behind closed doors

I love the Internet. I mean, really, who doesn't? Everyday I'm reminded what a strange, wonderful, exciting place the world is - and that's all because of the internet. It gives us the ability to connect with each other and share our passions and our lives with people across the globe. It lets us create in new ways. It allows us to learn things that we didn't even know we wanted to know about (like, for instance, did you know that there is such a thing as a Mini Donkey?). You can watch live videos of rescue kittens. This just scratches the surface of what wonders lie on the vastness of the internet.

A lot of it wouldn't be possible without open internet access and the freedom to create content without fear. Yet it seems every time I turn around these days, there is some government entity somewhere that wants to threaten that. And not just in far away places like China and Iran. This is everywhere. The future of the global internet is at risk.



For more information, visit WhatIsTheITU.org and share the video. Stand up, speak out and let your government know that you believe in open internet.
