Freedom-to-Connect will bring together the three constituencies that can defend against the imminent attack on the open Internet:

(1)  the large companies that owe their very existence to the internet;

(2)  the smaller upstarts with new opportunities and new ways of doing business that are Internet-centric, and whose very survival depends on the existence of an unfettered, open Internet; and

(3) citizens, NGOs, politically-active groups that rely on the Internet as a critical infrastructure of Democracy.
