This Presidents Day, there will be a gathering outside Mark Zuckerberg’s house near Dolores Park. You may join “Wake the ZUCK up” and let him know that you won’t be quiet in the face of his company undermining our democracy. Don’t let disinformation on Facebook ZUCK UP our next election.

Why? Zuckerberg’s San Francisco Bay Area technology company Facebook refuses to take responsibility for lies, hate, and disinformation spread on its platform. This irresponsibility is alarming especially in light of the 2020 elections.

Facebook sells ads to U.S. politicians but imposes zero restrictions on lies and false claims and is happy to profit from micro-targeted advertising that’s being used to misinform, manipulate and incite hatred among vulnerable voters.

Facebook should recognize it has created a monster and stop politicians from being able to “buy and lie” in their campaign advertising in 2020. But don’t expect Facebook to let go of so much lucrative attention and influence without a fight. We are ready to fight and to wake the Zuck up!

Facebook should: Refuse political ads that lie, refuse to sell political ad microtargeting, and deny service to anyone seeking to disrupt the 2020 election.
