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.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation


Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
