    • Zuckerberg's Internet.org will control what billions do online

      People in countries like India,1,2,3 Zimbabwe,4 Brazil,5 and Paraguay6 are speaking out about Facebook's so-called Internet.org platform and its ability to control what billions of Internet users can do online.7,8


      Zuckerberg's partnership with telecom giants, Internet.org, provides access to a fake Internet where selected services are prioritized over others.9 This scheme threatens innovation,10 free expression,11 and privacy online12


      It blocks many of the websites, apps, and services the world loves from being made available on equal terms.13


      The fake Internet will also restrict access to local service providers struggling to get a foothold online.14


      We all deserve access to the real open Internet. Stand with people around the world demanding Zuckerberg stops restricting access to the open Internet.
