Take Action: Google promotes campaign for a free and open network

Amid increasing censorship and regulation looming over the network in many countries, has launched the Take Action , a way to involve all users and to get more people to the importance of the network remains free to any attempt to regulate.

The page opened by the company is an invitation to all members to join in the construction and defense of a network without censorship. A page that alerts the next meeting International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in Dubai from December 3, meeting where the giant maintains that some governments will try to reach agreements with those who raise and regulate the network censors.

Words corroborate Vint Cerf’s comments last week in California. During the Summit Egnyte Firestorm, Cerf cited some current examples and methods that are taking place in the world. A scenario where countries may be protected by international treaties through which they could reach the network suppress situations “extraordinary” .

Take Action suggests that the idea behind these projects is to remove the speaker which is for many people the social networks like Facebook or Twitter in order to achieve or blocking network access.

Google’s argument is clear. The giant says more than two billion people worldwide, a third of the population on the planet, using the to “share, communicate and work.” According to Google:

A free and open world depends on a free and open network. Governments alone, working behind closed doors, not to direct the future. The billions of people worldwide who use the Internet must have a voice.

Next to the page and the that opened, Google offers users the possibility to join this initiative by signing and giving our views on the idea.
