Submission + - Google advocates for a free and open internet (

Froze writes: "A message from Vint Cerf at Google claims;

A closed-door meeting of the world’s governments is starting today. The future of the internet is on the agenda. Some governments want to use this meeting of the International Telecommunication Union to increase censorship and regulate the Internet.

I am concerned, and I am not alone. More than 1,000 organizations from 163 countries have raised concerns about this upcoming closed-door meeting in Dubai. They are joined by hundreds of thousands of Internet users who are standing up for a free and open Internet. These people are in just about every country around the world — take a look.

If you agree and support a free and open Internet, join them and raise your voice:

Together, we can protect the free and open Internet. Please make your voice heard and spread the word.
