May First/People Link
May First/People-Link is a membership organization that redefines the concept of “Internet Hosting Service” in a collective, progressive and collaborative way. It is the largest membership Internet organization in the Americas and one of the few that is organized in both the United States and Mexico. It’s a fully bi-lingual organization and fully democratic — the major decisions about the organization are made by its members and carried out by a Leadership Committee that is member-elected. Besides members’ sharing of Internet resources like web-hosting and email, MF/PL participates in many coalitions in the U.S. and world-wide (including the U.S. Social Forum where it has long played a leading role). In this video, MF/PL founder and current LC member Alfredo Lopez explains what the organization is all about and why people should join it.
That the left of the Americas develop and mobilize around a program that effectively uses the Internet, protects its independence and freedom, and allows the technology to bring us together more effectively and powerfully.
