Stop UN Takeover Of The Internet!

Dear Friend,

There is a real danger that the United Nations could take over the Internet.

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it was not going to renew its contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) which now controls the assignment of domain names.  

Nobody knows how the ICANN functions will be performed in the future.

Waiting in the wings is the U.N. which tried to take over the Internet in 2012 at a meeting in Dubai where Russia and China tried to delegate control to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) an organization founded in 1895 that regulates long distance telephone lines and satellite orbits.  The U.S. and Europe objected to the treaty which was negotiated in Dubai since it gave governments the power to assign domain names, get the actual names of the people involved in each site, censor web content, and charge fees for access to international sites.

A treaty was signed by 83 largely authoritarian states but the U.S. and Europe wouldn't sign.

The ITU is run by Hamadoun Touré, a native of Mali who was educated in Lenningrad and Moscow in the 1980s and by Houlin Zhao, from China.  The danger that communist-like control could be exerted over the Internet is very, very great.

Please sign this petition to keep the Internet free and to block UN efforts at controlling it.  We must act now to stop the UN takeover.

We will forward your signature to your Senators and Congressman.  Please be sure to include your name, hard mailing address, and your email so we can do so.

We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.

Thanks,

Dick Morris

The internet needs to be open. We don't need control or over sight of any kind by any other nation or the UN
The U.N. to take over the internet?
Are you out of your minds?
I don't want Russia, China or any Islamic country blocking access to anything on the Internet. Evidently, the Obama administration doesn't seem to think that's possible.
Impeach the president.When are you going to get a petition for that
We Invented the internet, and yet you want to give authority to Nations that clearly hate us, and israel?

Shame on you. United Nations has zero right to tell Americans what to do.

If you care about us the people, then vote no to accepting this deal
