End Piracy, Not Liberty

I was SO excited to participate in RTW today, since it’s been like two months since the last time I did, but I heartily agree with the stand against SOPA and PIPA that YA Highway is taking. They shared several links with information on these two bills and a few links to sites that are forming petitions.

While SOPA has been getting a lot of attention, PIPA is pretty scary too. Just watch this short video from Fight for the Future to learn how:

Now hop over to Fight for the Future and sign their petition.

Or check out Google’s petition (and sign it!).

Or jump over to YA Highway for a few more links.

These bills are scary with the amount of censorship control they give to the government. Luckily for us, we live in a democracy. Our voices can be heard–they can do something.

Now let’s exercise that right to defend our freedom of speech.

    I much prefer these kinds of approaches to just going dark for the day. Symbolic protests are important and can spur people into action, too, but I feel like keeping people informed about HOW they can take action, even if it’s in a very small way, has a greater chance of being effective.
