Brazil's progressive take on digital rights is well known all over the world. In 2014, during the Net Mundial Conference for the future of the internet, the Brazilian Civil Framework for the Internet (Marco Civil) was introduced to the public as a piece of legislation that offered guarantees for the rights to privacy and freedom of expression of internet users in the country.
Yesterday, a Bicameral Commission in the Brazilian Congress proposed a set of 8 new bills that would seriously undermine the rights of Brazilian internet users and harm the rights guaranteed in current legislation. Join Brazilian activists to talk about next steps to help fight back this serious threat.
