In light of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations in Lima, May 15-26, 2013, internet activists from across Peru came together on May 4th and 5th to participate in what they dubbed "el Campamento por la Libertad". This series of lectures and workshops brought together a multitude of individuals, including activists, designers, Linux users, visual artists, lawyers and journalists, all working towards the common goal of protecting internet freedom. The Campamento was organized by ONG Hiperderecho, Escuelab, the Asociación Peruana de Software Libre and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The weekend included discussions of the various areas that would be affected by the TPP, including intellectual property provisions and freedom of expression on the internet.
In May 2013, Peruvian groups launched the webpage No Negociable!
to inform Peruvians about a variety of potential implications of the
TPP. The site was created by civil society organizations, including Red
Peruana por una Globalización con Equidad (RedGE), Acción Internacional
por la Salud (AIS), Red Peruana de Pacientes y Personas Usuarias (RPPU),
la Red Uniendo Manos contra la Pobreza, ONG Hiperderecho, along with
others. The website includes a petition for Peruvians to sign, urging
President Ollanta Humala to reject the TPP's current intellectual
property provisions. Support the nonegociable.pe campaign on Facebook and Twitter @nonegociablepe #ESONO
