    The European Union today (26th January) is going to sign the ACTA bill, which will censor the internet and make your freedom disappear, and if you download non-legal content they may arrest you.

    Please take your time and fill these petitions:
    https://www.accessnow.org/page/s/just-say-no-to-acta
    Avaaz - Save the Internet - the pressure is working!
    Stopp ACTA | Petition
    Stop ACTA - e-petitions

    And whatever petitions against ACTA you find.

    Do not forget what they've done to a guy from UK, just because he posted a link to download a film on his website he was charged of piracy and extradited to US.

    Please, this is extremely and seriously important to everyone and all of you, I don't want the internet to be blocked nor do you. This is no joke. Not kidding.

    @Neoteam!! lol!! But i wonder if this could also be a ripple affect, or if it even has something to do with the fact that in South Africa, about a month back our retarded government also made mention about a Secrecy Bill being passed, and this bill was actually passed not so long ago, meaning that us here in S.A also now has no right to basically say what we want and how we want also! MMMHHHH???

    I think after seeing how Facebook, Youtube and other internet services have been used in the middle east uprisings, other governments have seen how the internet can be used to overthrow them. Hence all these mad bills to try get the ability to take anything down with no questions asked.

    Julia Gillard better not do anything stupid like this. She's already on a VERY fine line with MOST people in Australia.
