Remember the ITU is a Liar

"On behalf of the two billion people now online, a look back at 2012, with thanks where it's due: . . . To the United Nations: When the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a U.N. agency, held its conference in Dubai (WCIT 2012), its leaders promised not to claim power over the Internet and pledged to operate by consensus, not by voting. Late one night, there was a vote of 89 authoritarian regimes against 55 free countries to give governments the U.N.'s blessing to censor the Internet, monitor traffic and lock up online troublemakers. The U.S. walked out. It is unregulated engineers at private companies who run the tens of thousands of networks that make up the Internet. Keeping an open Internet is more valuable than continuing any U.N. agency."

Abolish the ITU! Internet Freedom!
