Showcasing awesome stuff people are making on the web.

The ITU could put the Internet behind closed doors.

Watch the video to find out how.

In collaboration with Access Now and Fight for the Future, we’ve put together an interactive video about the ITU that you can customize for your own needs and share with others. Just click here and you’ll be editing your own video in minutes.

If making a Popcorn video isn’t your thing you could write a blog post, share your message on social media, or just start talking to your friends in your local community about what’s going on.

Make-your-own ITU Activism Video
Internet governance is a big, international issue. There is an amazing and diverse collection of opinions around what our governments should decide when they gather at the ITU meeting in Dubai in December. This Popcorn Maker project helps us—the web—speak in one voice while celebrating the plurality of languages and viewpoints that make the web such an amazing place to be.

To do that, we’re launching an experiment: in collaboration with  Access Now and Fight for the Future, we’ve cut a short video that explains the ITU and why it’s important that our voices be heard. But this is no ordinary video—we’ve loaded the ITU activism video into Mozilla Popcorn Maker, where you’ll be able to easily personalize, remix, and share the content of the video.
Try these ideas out:
1. Translate the video into your local language
2. Change the tone or content of the message
3. Customize the call to action

The ITU and You


The Internet has always been guided forwards by collaborative, open
approaches. We believe that these approaches are one of the reasons
why the web has become and remained the wonderful, powerful and
empowering place we know today. In the coming weeks, this successful
model of governing and shaping the future of the web will be at risk.

Today, we’re launching a kit of tools and resources to inform and
mobilize the Internet community
about what’s happening at the
International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and support people in
taking grassroots action. Mozilla stands behind transparency in
Internet governance, but a free and open Internet depends on you.

On December 3rd, nations from around the world will be meeting in
Dubai for the World Conference on International Telecommunications
(WCIT), a meeting of the ITU. These governments will be meeting behind
closed doors to determine if an old treaty will be amended to allow
countries the power to more fully regulate and control the structure
of the web.

Whether the Internet is regulated by governmental treaties via the ITU
and to what extent, is a vitally critical question. In fact it is so
critical it can’t be done behind closed doors. The Internet as we know
it today is just too fundamental to our lives to leave it to
governments to decide its fate

Mozilla’s mission is to promote openess, innovation and opportunity on
the web. We do this first and foremost by building great products.
But, as any Mozillian knows — the story is much more than the latest
release or coolest hack. The Internet depends critically on a human
network of communities and relationships, and Mozilla builds movements
that strengthen the web.

The resources we are making available today will give you everything
you need to learn about the upcoming meeting and why it matters, craft
an effective message to get your government to listen, and engage in
the global conversation about how decisions about the future of the
web should be made.
