Join us for a virtual protest the night before the Facebook shareholders’ meeting
Pro-democracy activists have a message for Facebook shareholders: “Wake the ZUCK Up!” We’ll project this message and others onto the side of the Facebook building in San Francisco the night before the shareholders’ virtual meeting. We’ll be urging the shareholders to protect the public from lies, hate, and disinformation in political advertisements during the 2020 election season.
Watch a livestream of the action at https://www.facebook.com/GlobalExchange/
Shareholders will be considering a proposal to study and report on Facebook’s political ads policy (see the Facebook shareholders proxy statement, proposal seven, page 71), which exempts ads by politicians and political campaigns from Facebook’s community standards policy and its fact-checking process.
At the projection protest on Tuesday night, Don’t Let Facebook ZUCK Up our Democracy coalition activists will call on Facebook to refuse political ads that lie, refuse to sell political ad microtargeting, and deny service to anyone seeking to disrupt the 2020 election. And they will remind Facebook shareholders that Truth Matters.
