    55May First/People Link's mission is to defend and expand the Internet as a movement for free and open communication in order to strengthen the global movement for justice. We envision a world in which technology is freely shared, accessible to everyone, and used for everyone's benefit. We see a critically important role for progressive and social justice activists to play in uniting this vision of the Internet with the broader left's vision of a more just world.

    99May First/People Link is a politically progressive member-run and controlled organization that redefines the concept of "Internet Service Provider" in a collective and collaborative way. May First/People Link's members are organizers and activists. Like any democratic membership organization, we gather together each year to evaluate the past year's experiences, plan the coming year's work and elect a Leadership Committee to apply what we've decided. Like a coop, we pay dues, buy equipment and then we all use that equipment as we need to for websites, email, email lists, and just about everything else we do on the Internet.
