Communication Network Globally?

The relationship between internet rights, Open Access and Public Access are
inter-related and are directly connected to labor and worker rights in the
US and internationally . This panel will look at the issue of what
constitutes internet rights, various proposals for open access and the
history of public access both in the US and internationally. It will look
at how labor and workers internationally are grappling with these issues
and the use of the internet by corporations and workers who are organizing
for their rights.
We will   also focus on developments like the plan "Zero Rating" and free
access proposals like the www.internet.org plan controlled by Facebook that
is being pushed outside the United States and regulatory rights. We will
look at how this affects workers and labor communication globally.
