Stop Internet Censorship

Update! According to an email I received last night 13 million people told Congress to protect free speech rights on the internet and the SOPA  and PIPA bills were dropped. Apparently even other major nations stopped and took notice. Pretty impressive.

Now if only we could protect the right to choice for vaccinations, raw-milk, and the rights of small organic farms the same way. I can't tell you how many petitions I have signed asking GMO foods to be labeled as President Obama promised before he was elected.

However, it is still awesome to see that the people do still have a say in the politics their government practices...

Normally this would go on our soapbox page... but it is time sensitive and happening today!

Ways to see just what this is all about:
Infographic (a general diagram of what the bill will do... notice censorship of emails?!? How about Uncle Sam just listen in on every phone conversation while they are at it.)
Stop American Censorship Website (sign a petition)
Wikipedia - Stop Online Piracy Act
Craig's List SOPA & Action Page
List of Strike Sites

Watch this video:

On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate. Kill the bills: PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House. Our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity depend on it.

  1. Being an Australian broadband service provider subscriber, I have been responsible in using its services. Censoring the internet is quite unfair to those who are responsible in using online technology.
