Dear fellows

As some of you know, on the evening of 5 February 2014, the Turkish parliament voted into law a series of measures that will tighten government control over the Internet, give it unrestricted access to users’ online activities, and increase its ability to block online content arbitrarily. Given the political situation of the country, it's expected that, if turned into Law, such bill could cause major damages to the Turkish democracy.

In order to avoid such harm, an Avaaz petition has been written in order to urge President Abdullah Gül to veto the bill. Please, sign and share the petition to the biggest extent possible: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/President_Abdullah_Gul_of_Republic_of_Turkey_Veto_the_new_passed_Internet_Law/?aEWnUgb&mobile=1

Kindest regards,
Izabela Corrêa
