Practical solidarity for a world that puts people first

Sharan Burrow, Vint Cerf, Paul Twomey on ITU Net regulation concerns

On Monday, ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow held a press conference in London, with Co-inventor of the Internet Vint Cerf, and form ICANN CEO Paul Twomey. They had come together (in person and online) to launch the ITUC’s global petition calling for a pause in the plans to regulate the internet at a UN gathering in Dubai next month.

Here are some of the highlights from the conference – why the three panelists are so concerned about what this means for civil liberties and for the sustainable development of the Internet.

If you’re concerned too, please join us in signing the petition we’re running with the ITUC, and tell the UN agency the ITU to stop their Net grab.
