Net Neutrality is once more at stake in Europe. This means that encrypted data transfers could be thwarted in the future or that it could be no more free to download free software while offers of monopolists like Netflix would become cheaper or even free; all at your own cost! Do not let the free and innovative internet be turned into some sort of cable television; sign at savetheinternet.eu!

From the side of the USA a new progress for DRM (Digital Rights Management) is looming which could become obligatory through the HTML5 standard. Certain functionality in your browser would be disabled or only still available at cost. DRM can not be implemented meaningful with free software like Linux oder Firefox. The responsible US-ministery has refused to accept a list of signatures by the FSF (Free Software Foundation). Protest against this misbehaviour and join them on Twitter or simply read more about it.

to the European Parliament: Forbid Glyphosphate!

Thanks to the engaged and vehement protests by citizens the readmission of Glyphosphate in the European Union for another 15 years could be stopped up to now: However Monsanto will not give up its box office hit easily. Now the European Parliament is up to vote for or against it. This is the first time that we have the chance to permanently forbid Glyphosphate which is carcinogenic: SumOfUs: Parlamentarians of the EU: Decide against Glyphosphate!

Thanks to Antoine Deltour who has brought as an employee of the audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers the scandalous accounting tricks of transnationals to the public we know that certain corporations have been paying less than 1% of tax. Now he is facing trial. If a new bill was passed by the European Parliament he could face a long prison sentence and a ruinously high fine. Please engage in the call for action by wemove.eu!
