Do you care about free speech on the Internet? What about your privacy online? What if your government created a law that could protect these rights, rather than threatening them?
Brazilian digital rights advocates have been working for years to pass the Marco Civil da Internet, a one-of-a-kind law that would protect key rights and freedoms on the Internet.
US government surveillance programs have brought new momentum to the issue, galvanizing support from civil society and even Brazil's president, Dilma Rousseff.
This week on GV Face , our Advocacy Editor Ellery Biddle (@ellerybiddle ) talks with leading experts on the issue, including GV author Raphael Tsavkko @Tsavkko , Carolina Rossini  (@carolinarossini)  and Joana Varon  (@joana_varon)  an original author of the bill.
