EU politicians are drafting the final version of the legislation that could rein in Big Tech platforms -- and end their days of putting profit over all else.

But the Big Tech lobby is on a dangerous mission: they are pushing to include a provision in this legislation which would shield their companies from having to share crucial information that could save millions of people from Covid disinformation, hate speech, scams and more.

But we can stop this. 

These politicians care about their public image and our pressure can make sure they do the right thing. They are deciding on this provision as we speak -- Will you send a Tweet to key MEPs asking them to vote for the people not Big Tech billionaires?

The harms of social media and Big tech are only known thanks to the herculean efforts of civil society and journalists, so now, they want to block us from accessing information that exposes their true colours -- claiming these are "trade secrets". This is absurd!

We can’t let these companies shape our laws. If we show Europe’s politicians that we -- the people -- are watching their every move, we can push them into acting for the interests of the public, not Big Tech profits. 

Will you help by sending a Tweet to MEPs to vote for the people not the billionaires?
