Keep Egypt online

"The Egyptian government shutdown of the Internet and mobile phone networks was an attempt to plunge the country into an information blackout." So says Access, an international non-profit dedicated to digital freedom. Access is asking that you sign its petition calling on Egypt's Internet service providers (ISPs) to keep the Internet open and to the mobile operators to maintain the mobile networks.

"We ask that you stand firm against the Egyptian government and allow the people, and your customers, to communicate freely and openly at this vital time," reads the petition.

Add your name to the petition, which has already been signed by people from 103 different countries, here.
