Chris,

Next week, the EU Commission will hold a vote that could decide the fate of the Internet.

The EU is wrapping up the debate on Articles 11 and 13—the Link Tax and Copyright Machines—and plans to hold a vote as early as next Tuesday.

To fight back, we've joined a digital day of action to push as many people as possible to protests taking place across Europe on March 23.

We have just days left to Save the Link and stop megacorporations from owning the Internet. Will you chip in now?

Articles 11 and 13 implement ridiculous fees for linking to content and require websites like Reddit and Wikipedia to develop costly and restrictive upload filters—all in the name of protecting a publishing industry that has refused to keep up with the times.1

If the Link Tax and Censorship Machines had been in place when the Internet first started, there wouldn't be any Reddit or Wikipedia.

This new Copyright Directive will stifle creativity and freedom of expression online and trample websites that can't afford to build million-dollar upload filters. It will ruin the Internet as we know it, not just for Europe, but across the globe.

That's why free and open Internet advocacy groups, including OpenMedia, have joined forces to Save the Link and stop Articles 11 and 13. WikipediaDE went dark on March 21 to raise awareness, and the group Save The Internet has organized protests all over the continent on March 23 to send a strong message to the EU: Hands off our Internet.2

OpenMedia is using our grassroots platform to spread the word about the protests and drive as many people as possible to send a clear message to their members of Parliament on March 23. We need to use every resource possible for this last-minute push.

Will you donate to help Save the Link?

Yours for the Internet,
Laura, and the whole team at OpenMedia
