People in countries like India,Zimbabwe, Brazil, Pakistan6 and Paraguay are
speaking out about Facebook's so-called Internet.org platform and its
ability to control what billions of Internet users can do online.

Zuckerberg's partnership with telecom giants, Internet.org, provides access
to a fake Internet where selected services are prioritized over others. This
scheme threatens innovation, free expression, and privacy online.

It blocks many of the websites, apps, and services the world loves from
being made available on equal terms.
The fake Internet will also restrict access to local service providers
struggling to get a foothold online.
