Internet users oppose Fast Tracking the TPP, but #Facebook doesn’t seem to care.
U.S. #Congress is hurtling toward a vote on a “#FastTrack” bill that would speed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) into law. The TPP is a secret agreement that contains extreme #copyright provisions that endanger #Internet freedom.
Thousands of tech companies, from tiny startups to well loved sites like #reddit and #Tumblr, oppose this anti-democratic and anti-Internet Fast Track legislation, but Facebook is supporting it.

Why? Maybe it’s because secretive #tradeagreements like the TPP grant giant corporations like Facebook new power to influence policy around the world, and #privilege the largest companies at the expense of innovation and freedom of expression.

Facebook can afford an #army of #lawyers and #lobbyists to ensure that their interests are protected under the TPP’s #draconian new Internet policies, but average Internet users, startups, and political activists can’t.

Facebook is supporting censorship, #stifling #competition, and helping governments break the Internet, just to make a few extra bucks. This time thy’ve gone too far. Sign and share this petition right now to tell Facebook to drop their support for Fast Tracking the TPP. source: #transpacificpartnership #transatlantictradeandinvestmentpartnership #usafreedomact #patriotact #nokxl #policebrutality #terrorism by charles______________________
