This just in from Tokyo:1

Leaders from Japan and the U.S. have released a joint statement showing they fully intend to implement an Internet censorship plan that could kick whole families off the Internet.2

They’re watching our Stop The Secrecy campaign closely and we’ve only held them off because over 2.8 million people have joined in.        Share this historic campaign with everyone you know:

Imagine if all 2.8 million of us each took a few seconds to share this campaign with everyone they know. We’re counting on you to do your part.

This is what we do at OpenMedia — we amplify your voice for an open Internet and a democratic future.

We can win this if we stick together.

–Steve on behalf of your OpenMedia team
