Facebook: Release Ads Linked With Russian Meddling in American Election

Target: Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO

Goal: Publicly release the 2016 election ads recently discovered by Facebook linked to Russian propaganda.

Facebook has discovered $100,000 worth of inflammatory ads that were run by false accounts during the 2016 presidential election. These accounts were reportedly linked to pro-Kremlin Russian nationals, secretly spreading propaganda in order to sway American voters. Laws are in place banning foreign nationals from trying to influence U.S. elections, and depending on how they were phrased, many of these ads may have been illegal. Facebook, however, is refusing to publicly reveal the content of these ads (after denying for months that paid Russian ads such as these had been run through the site in the first place).

The content of these ads — which were associated with a Russian “troll farm” called the Internet Research Agency — is key in determining the extent to which the law has been broken. It could also prove vital for the investigation into Russia’s efforts to undermine the election, and could be invaluable when it comes to protecting our democracy from future attacks. Sign below to demand that Facebook assist in the investigation into this threat to our democracy, and publicly release the ads secretly sponsored by Russian agents.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

The possibility that Russian agents may have broken federal law with paid ads on Facebook intended to influence the U.S. presidential election absolutely cannot be ignored. This attack on our democracy is very serious, and it is imperative that the investigation be supported and assisted.

In order to determine the illegality of this propaganda sponsored by pro-Kremlin Russian nationals, and to prevent this threat from continuing, the content of the ads must be released to the public. I urge you to stop withholding information about these ads and share them with the public, who deserve to know.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
