Vous vous souvenez il y'a quelques mois quand on s'est tous moqués des américains parce que Trump voulait péter la neutralité du net ? Bah le parlement européen est en train de voter une merde sensiblement pareille sur certains points. #Hypocrisie #SaveYourInternet
Pour faire simple, le contenu va être nettement plus protégé et donc par extension accessible et manipulable par les gros d'internet : ça va priver beaucoup de gens de la liberté de visionner et partager.
Beaucoup de journaux y sont très favorables parce qu'ils pourraient taxer le partage de leurs articles (le simple fait de partager un lien, une photo, une vidéo deviendrait donc illégal sans s'acquitter de certains frais / respecter certaines consignes)

I'm told that Telecom Commission has accepted @TRAI 's recommendations on #NetNeutrality. Thank you TRAI& @rssharma3 for giving India the strongest Net Neutrality regulations in the world,covering both throttling of Internet access & prevention of discriminatory pricing
As per the @trai recommendations, ISP and Telco license conditions will be amended to enforce net neutrality principles. This means that if the telecom operators violate net neutrality, then they will be violating their license conditions, risking license cancellation
Apart from a #NetNeutrality law, this was the most effective way of ensuring non-discrimination by ISPs in India. My story on India's Net Neutrality rules here:…

We can #SaveTheInternet if the House will take a vote like the Senate. ISPs should not have the last word in what any American can see on the internet. Congress has a chance to put consumers and #SmallBiz first. #NetNeutrality
Seventy percent of small business owners feel that they are at a disadvantage compared to larger businesses due to their size and market power. The internet gives them capacity to try to equalize that disadvantage. Congress should support a free and open internet.
This is a debate of whether we are on the side of big utility-type companies or individuals and small businesses to guarantee them equal access to this critical service. Almost half of consumers have no choice of ISP. This is not about competition but preventing discrimination.

Inaction by House Republicans on the bipartisan Senate resolution to #SaveTheInternet has allowed the FCC to repeal #NetNeutrality today.
They have decided to side with giant internet service companies and special interests instead the millions of Americans who want to keep the internet open and free.
I’m urging @SpeakerRyan to side with millions of Americans, and not the big internet service providers, by bringing the #SaveTheInternet resolution to the House floor for a vote.

#NetNeutrality is the lifeblood of the internet—it allows for allows for equal opportunity and democracy without the threat of blocking, discriminating, price gouging, or favoritism.
Reversing #NetNeutrality would be a nightmare for consumers. But it would also be a death knell for competition, innovation, and creativity in America.
Today the Senate stood with millions of Americans by taking action to #SaveTheInternet and protect #NetNeutrality. #NetNeutrality isn’t a partisan issue in the hallways of Congress or communities across America.

What are some things that Democrats like me believe?

Democrats believe we are stronger when we have an economy that works for everyone—an economy that grows incomes for working people, creates good-paying jobs, and puts a middle-class life within reach for more Americans.
We believe that today’s extreme level of income & wealth inequality—where the majority of the economic gains go to the top 1% & the richest 20 people in our country own more wealth than the bottom 150 million—makes our economy weaker, our communities poorer h our politics poison
And we know that our nation’s long struggle with race is far from over. Race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind. We must face that reality and we must fix it.

Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.

Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.
