WATCH: Gerard Batten On Defending The Internet
Gerard Batten MEP and UKIP have joined the fight to stop the internet killing Article 13 and to defend the internet as we know it. Eurocrats were wanting to force the proposals through without a vote but a UKIP-led campaign backed most notably by the Green group of MEPs forced them to concede ground and there will now be a vote tomorrow. Mr Batten told Breitbart:
“The great danger is that it will destroy the capacity for free speech on the internet and social media, which has exploded in recent years and is an invaluable alternative to the so-called mainstream media.
“What is needed is not an EU Directive but an international agreement that protects the legitimate rights of creators, authors, and innovators, but which does not stifle free speech and information dissemination.”
