Our online privacy came under siege in 2012, but together we're building an amazing Internet freedom community to push back and protect our digital rights. There's a lot to do in 2013, but we have incredible momentum—we at OpenMedia are so excited to stand with you this year.

Thanks to support from Knowledge Ecology International (KEI) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), I had a chance to attend the latest round of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, from December 3rd to the 12th, in Auckland, New Zealand. I agreed to attend and make a presentation to the negotiators.

Earlier this week we posted about what the Internet will look like under the TPP, and how this secretive agreement will allow Big Media to criminalize your Internet use.

We asked our community to share stories about why they support our work as part of our yearly December Allies Drive. Christina Bub of Ontario, Canada had this to say: 

"OpenMedia does all the leg-work – they tear down the hurdle that prevents people from taking action, so their campaigns reflect the true number of like-minded people who care about the open Internet."

Concerned about what the Internet will look like under the TPP? You should be.
