Occupy Wall Street: Online petition against PIPA and SOPA threatening internet freedom. This petition will be read out name by name by Senator Wyden to filibuster these acts.
Right now, Congress is debating a law that would give them the power to censor the world’s Internet — creating a blacklist that could target YouTube, WikiLeaks and even groups like Avaaz!

Under the new law, the US could force Internet providers to block any website on suspicion of violating copyright or trademark legislation, or even failing to sufficiently police their users’ activities. And, because so much of the Internet’s hosts and hardware are located in the US, their blacklist would clamp down on the free web for all of us.

The vote could happen at any time now, but we can help stop this — champions in Congress want to preserve free speech and tell us that a global outcry would strengthen their hand, and one of them — Senator Wyden — says he will “filibuster” or block any vote on the bill by reading out our petition names until the clock runs out! Let’s urgently raise our voices from every corner of the world to build an unprecedented global petition. Sign the petition and send to everyone.

  1. The SOPA and PIPA acts impede our right as Humans to free speech and free press. SOPA and PIPA will do nothing towards these causes. Censoring the internet only proves that we’re not a Democracy anymore. This isn’t progress, censoring the internet will do nothing but prove to other countries that we do not stand by our own Constitution.

    Internet censure is demon-cracy not democracy.
