Next protest coming soon:
With an incredible showing of power and belief, over 300,000 people in 72 hours called on the European Parliament to reject the rights-threatening international copyright treaty, ACTA. We’ve shone a bright light on the countries that signed this secretly negotiated agreement – but the fight to save the internet is far from over.
ACTA still needs to be approved by the European Parliament, and if it goes down there, the agreement will effectively be dead in the water. Now we invite you to join us by taking to the streets at a protest near you on Feb 11.You signed the petition against ACTA, now check out the amazing map below showing the global day of action, and grab a friend to join a protest and make your voice heard:
If you can’t make a protest, you can still participate. Go to our Tumblr page and show your solidarity with the Feb. 11 protestors by submitting a picture, words of support, or protest signs! Your pictures and words will be posted on our page, and the best signs will be printed out by us and given to protestors on Feb. 11.http://accessnow.tumblr.com/
As you know, the internet is facing many threats and in 2012 Access will ask for your help on those issues. This is the year to protect the internet, and it starts with all of us! We’re right in the center of the fight for digital freedom in 2012 and we’re happy to have you with us.
The internet has been used for activism. Now it’s time to use activism to save the internet.
Thanks for all your support,Brett SolomonAccess Executive Director

CANADA IS PASSING A SOPA COPY IN 14 DAYS. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT CANADIAN, REBLOG THIS SO OTHERS CAN SEE IT. BECAUSE WE HAVE A MAJORITY GOVERNMENT HERE, THIS MEANS THAT ANYTHING HARPER AND THE CONSERVATIVES DECIDE THEY WANT TO PASS, CAN BE PASSED.
the letter is already written, so all you have to do is click send.
Reblogging for all you Canadians out there.
HARPER GODDAMN IT
I’m Canadian so it would mean a lot to me if you guys would sign this!
please reblog even if you’re not canadian!
Number of signatures:10,664
This is a petition on the Directgov website - this goes straight through to parliament and at the current time of posting it only has 21 signatures
I know a lot of people are reblogging the one sponsored by anonymous which is great but if you live in the UK, this is going to be your best best at getting yourself heard about ACTA - even if you don’t live in the UK or even the EU, PLEASE REBLOG THIS, as ACTA is something that not only affects Europe but the rest of the world as well and this could be one of the only opportunities for it to be downturned
COME ON GUYS!!!!!
No more pretending to be US citizens just to sign petitions! This one’s international so we can petition our government too and we NEED to let them know we’re not ok with this.
We’re already in danger of extradition just for posting links to pirated files (see Richard O’Dwyer’s case), and this would make things a whole lot worse.
411 signatures. I know you guys can do much, much better than that.
Sign both petitions, but this one is more important.
Anonymous is more or less seen as a criminal hacker group even if their intents and purposes here are good, they are hardly going to be taken seriously.
sign it! just do it!
this is the internet after acta
“dude I heard there was some sherlock on maple street”
“no way I just got some spn on 21st street”
This is smart. But what about viruses?
Shh, if we don’t mention the viruses they’ll go away.
Consider this your call to action.
I know that we all love this site as an expression of our individuality, but the fact of the matter is, we are under attack. And what we do is distracting us from that fact.
The American government now has all the records from Megaupload’s servers. Do you know what that means for you? That means that if you have ever used Megaupload, the government has your fucking number. And they will come for you.
This whole situation is so nightmarish and ridiculous and we need to speak out. At the moment, we still have the power and the right to free speech and we have to use that, we have to take advantage of that and raise our voices until they overpower it all. Because this is scary, it’s terrifying, this is oppression, this is unlawful behaviour by governments who would see the Big Brother of 1984 become a reality, and that is not a joke and no exaggeration. The powerful are gaining power, the powerful are abusing their power and abusing their people. And I believe it is true ‘people should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people’, because we are the majority, and if we speak up, if we retaliate, if we fight and reason and stand together, then no one can deny that, and no one can turn a blind eye, a deaf ear. So speak up to keep the interned free, to keep media free, to keep us, you, everyone, speech, thought, actions - too keep our freedom. This is scary, but it’s also a battle, we don’t have to sit at home and worry, because we are the masses, because we can fight. Because we can win. So take action.
BUT….. the European Parliament still has to vote about it.
If you haven’t signed the petition against ACTA yet, please do it now, it will be presented to the European Parliament. And they are kind of the last hope we got to stop this. If the parliament votes NO to ACTA, it can still be stopped. SO DO IT.
Please take moment and just sign the petition. Thank you! And reblog and let your followers to sign it too.
it’s also worth reading this, as it offers a lot of insight into ACTA and how it will affect europe, as well as what you can do to help, etc.
You can read more about it here.
If you live in the United States, PLEASE sign this petition to get ACTA reviewed by the Senate.
Otherwise, keep spreading the word about ACTA!
Yes please signal boost this, this is more important than the other petition going around! Obama has already signed ACTA so we need to get it to the Senate and then make sure they don’t approve it.
