Lebanon: save our Internet!

To The Minister of Telecommunications Sehnaoui, Ogero head Abdel-Moneim Youssef and Prime Minister Mikati:

We demand an end to the political wrangling and inefficiency that have prevented Lebanon from enjoying top-notch internet service. Poor planning, corruption and a lack of transparency have led to endless delays in creating the infrastructure necessary to support Lebanon’s economy, education and communication. We deserve better, and we call on you to fulfill your role as public servants to ensure a comprehensive effort to resolve these issues immediately.

Lebanon: save our Internet!
Corruption, politicking and ineptitude are blocking crucial infrastructure and condemning us to experience Internet misery and frustration -- only a massive outcry can turn the tide and help unleash the net access we deserve.

The Ministry of Telecommunications and its implementing company, Ogero, are at each others’ throats, killing any attempt to improve Internet services in Lebanon.  But after the latest series of blackouts, the business community is up in arms about the days of lost productivity and profits, and the Minister is feeling the heat. If enough of us raise our voices now we can help force through a political agreement that breathes life back into our dearly departed Internet.

Let's create a massive petition before the black scandal cools down, and Avaaz will work with leading journalists to make sure we drive home our message, generating pressure for politicians to unite behind saving our Internet and our economy. Sign the urgent petition now and tell all your friends.
