Why we need Access

Name “Freedom of speech online is the key to having our voices heard. Without it we are silenced.”
Natalie Vilarroel, Argentina

Name “How can we expect to link together globally if some of us are unable to access the internet. Bring down the firewalls.”
Ainslie Lenehan, Australia

Name “Access helps me to keep my identity and be part of a global community.”
Joseph Elias, Lebanon

Name “In enforcing the acts such as ACTA, PIPA or SOPA, the government is ruining our culture, our freedom, our lives. ”
Brody, United States

Name “Regimes are hijacking people's ability to express themselves. Access is giving it back to them.”
Nick Perrett, USA
