GAMERS FOR FREEDOM

Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right, but companies like Blizzard and Riot are silencing gamers who speak up about their own political oppression. Sign our petition to tell Blizzard and other game companies, "Support free expression for gamers everywhere we play."

SIGN THE PETITION

TELL GAME COMPANIES TO SUPPORT FREEDOM EVERYWHERE

Game publishers and developers have a responsibility to moderate the content that appears on their platforms to ensure that gamers are safe from harassment, threats of violence, and other dangerous behavior. But silencing gamers who speak up about issues that affect their freedom makes us all less safe from oppression and institutional abuse. Enter your information below to sign our petition urging game companies to support basic freedoms for gamers in America, Hong Kong, China, and around the globe.

WE PROTESTED AT BLIZZCON

On November 1st and November 2nd, hundreds of gamers descended on BlizzCon to protest Blizzard’s unfair censorship. Together with Freedom Hong Kong, Hong Kong Forum Los Angeles, and countless volunteers, we handed out over 4,000 t-shirts to BlizzCon attendees. We heard speeches from members of the American University Hearthstone team that Blizzard banned for their peaceful act of political protest. We hosted a cosplay contest. We took pictures. We chanted. And we made headlines around the globe, as media outlets like the New York Times, Kotaku, and ESPN reported on our movement.

Blizzard may not believe in its own corporate values. But we do. We believe that every voice matters, so we speak up for those who are being silenced. We think globally, so we support our fellow gamers around the world who are living in fear of political persecution. We are leading responsibly by organizing acts of peaceful political protests. And we'll keep fighting until Blizzard makes this right, because we believe that our world is worth fighting for.
