S&N They're always butting in and trying to censor the internet. We can pick and choose just fine without censorship!!!

Done - thank you, Cal!

It took me quite some time to find the place on the page where you go to the petition. I'm sure nobody else is as stupid as me, but, just in case... You scroll down the page, keeping your eye on the left-hand column. You'll see this sub-heading: Over 100,000 citizens against Internet censorship. There are two paragraphs after that before you get to a grey line. At the end of the second paragraph is the place you click!

Or you can go straight here:

Noted. Signed. Even during the gov't shutdown, Sec. of State Kerry has been on a trip to Asia to continue negotiations for the TPP. It is supremely discouraging and difficult to feel hopeful about the grim direction our gov't, our nation, and our world is heading.

Thank you for helping to expose this dangerous effort on the part of governments around the world. There is a frightening effort to suppress information in the media and on the internet which is dangerous to the well being of the planet and every living being! This would put an end to our efforts here on Care2 and every other petition sites. Folks this is horrifying. We have to fight this by spreading the news and sharing the petition. (s, n, p, t)

PLEASE sign the petition at the bottom of the article. I say this because it's easy to miss.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations encompass so much more, are they to scrap the entirety?
