Proposal on Net Neutrality for Online PPI GA 29th March

AR
Andrew Reitemeyer Public Seen by 179

May the General Assembly of the Pirate Parties International decide the
following declaration on net neutrality:

The principle of network neutrality must by inforced by law in each and
every country to ensure strong incentives for investment, fair
competition and equal treatment of everybody in the digital space.

We consider the freedom of information as an universal human right, and
the net neutrality a necessary mean to it.

Everyone must be able to have access to an Internet connection that does
not discriminate against any service or competitor. Traffic management
measures shall only be allowed in exceptional circumstances, operated
in a clear and transparent manner and only for technical reasons.

Non-discriminatory access to the Internet must apply uniformly across
the whole world. We reject measures by the telecommunications companies
that threaten freedom of access.


In case of succesfull adoption by the GA, we call upon the Members of
PPI to ratify this declaration timely by a suitable vehicle.

I am not happy with PPI taking stands on policy even if we agree.
