Internet shutdowns cause major social and economic damage. We need to help governments understand shutdowns are not the solution!

Here’s what you can do to help:

  • Share our policy paper on Internet content blocking. We need to put this in the hands of policy makers and our partners around the world so they know that merely blocking access to content deemed illegal is not the solution. A special thanks to our members for providing invaluable input on this paper in its consultation phase!
  • Watch our Twitter feed and retweet calls to action. We also messages on Facebook so please share if you can.
  • Reach out to top influencers on social. Are you following people who would be able to contact governments? Reach out to them on social and share our paper.
  • Use the hashtag #KeepItOn. We’ll be watching and will happily signal boost you on ISOC’s channels.

If we all work together we can send a strong message that Internet shutdowns and content filtering are not the answer!
