Nice try, GerardM,

but I don't think that the Erasmus Prize was given to Wikipedia because
some people in the Foundation made same questionable deals with some access providers in the Global South. Zero-Rating is a clear violation of the net neutrality principle and many NGOs in the Global South do not appreciate that WMF is undermining these principles for pushing the brand Wikipedia.

Spreading the free knowledge by undermining the principles on which the web
became great is wrong.

And the video is much better without this WP0-propaganda in it.


Actually, Wikipedia Zero was explicitly cited in the laudation when the prize was awarded. We may like it or not but it was an integral part of the prize.
