Censorship in America: Uh Oh! You Woke Up the Internet! Help Stop SOPA!!!

Last week there was a small meeting at Mozilla to discuss SOPA, the Internet Censorship Bill.

It was eerie.  The DC groups were practically screaming, “this bill is the worst we’ve ever seen and we can’t stop it” — while everyone else had barely heard of it.  The consensus?  We needed to wake people up.

Well, yesterday the Internet woke up.  *You* woke the internet up.

To everyone who wrote their rep, made calls, posted to Twitter and Facebooks — and especially to everyone who ran the modal and blacked out their logos, you are courageous and you made history yesterday.  You just took the first step to combine the web’s largest sites, its strongest communities, its staunchest defenders and billions of users into and unbeatable force for stopping censorship.

The scary part?  We still might lose.   Though growing fast, our coalition still isn’t strong enough.

The bill is backed by an unholy alliance of Hollywood, its unions, drug companies, and the Chamber of Commerce.  They are pouring money into it, and they’ve been working on this for years.   Yesterday, big players like Tumblr, Mozilla, Reddit, BoingBoing, and even 4chan came out strong on our side.  Now it’s your turn.  We’ve got to dig in and go viral.

Can you add a “Stop Censorship” message to your blog, Tumblr, Facebook, or Youtube pages?  Click here for the code.

If you ran “Stop Censorship” or the “Contact Congress” splash on your page yesterday, we humbly ask you to keep it running until this bill is dead, and to find more people who can.  We understand if you can’t, but the bill is just as bad as it was yesterday — so we’ve got to ask.

    The U.S is not a free country anymore, SOPA is not the only thing that makes the U.S seem more and more of a police state. I’ve written a post about the other things they did and currently doing that makes the U.S feel less and less secure for the average citizen.

    In 2007 the head of AOL said “bye this time next year nothing will be free on the internet” HE WAS WRONG BUT THAT IS WHAT THIS BILL IS TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH!
