Fight for the Future joined 29 other organizations in an open letter to Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg calling for Facebook to stop its disingenuous campaign encouraging users to support “Free Basics” in India. See the full text of the letter below. Contact: email@example.com for additional comment.
Dear Mark Zuckerberg,
You have said that “connecting the world is one of the greatest challenges of our generation.” We all agree. We also believe that a connectivity agenda must respect the right of all to equally access, receive and impart information. For this reason, we are concerned about Facebook’s recent attacks on the millions of internet users in India and around the world who have fought, and who continue to fight, for Net Neutrality.
Hey, this is a little personal, but I wanted to share it with you. If you ever wondered why we at Fight for the Future are up all night working nonstop to defend the free and open Internet, it’s because each and every one of us has a story about how the Internet has changed our lives.
