Noon February 4 Rally—Outside Senator Diane Feinstein’s office, 1 Post St. (Montgomery BART)
This message is from the EFF’s Maira Sutton:
This Thursday at noon, we’ll be joining nationwide protests against the Trans-Pacific Partnership in front of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office. We’ve got more details below; we hope you’ll come out.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement was just signed by trade officials from twelve countries, even though it contains a wide range of harmful digital regulations. It’s a Trojan horse for Hollywood’s wish list of anti-user policies: it includes rules that make it a crime to tinker with our devices and it creates legal uncertainty around what we can do with copyrighted works online. Even worse, it could be used to legitimize the passage of ever more restrictive policies.
There’s still time to stop it. The TPP doesn’t go into force unless countries ratify it. For the U.S., that means both houses of Congress will have to approve the deal. That’s why we need to act now and urge our representatives in D.C. to vote no on the TPP.
We have to do everything we can to stop this rotten deal—which is why EFF is joining groups across the country to protest the TPP in the streets.
Here are the details:
Where: Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office, 1 Post St., San Francisco, CA 94104. Google map and directions
When: Thursday February 4, 12:00pm PT
I’ll be speaking at the event about how the TPP will undermine our digital rights in the decades to come.
We hope you can join us, and stay tuned for more opportunities to take action against the TPP in the weeks to come
Hope to see you there,
Electronic Frontier Foundation
