Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.

@aral did an amazing speech today in the european parliament on "the future of internet regulation". It was a full attack on how the EU is currently supporting big tech platforms.

Wow, just had the Pirates/Greens pick through my EU parliament presentation slides with a fine tooth comb in a phone call and try to get me to change what I’m saying so as not to criticise Facebook, etc. WTF?

Never had anyone try to censor what I say before. Of course I will speak my mind verbatim tomorrow and if anything this means I won’t be accepting any future speaking engagements at the EU parliament for these parties.

WTAF?
