[EMERGENCY][URGENT][MEETUP] STOP SOPA! Take to the steps of the US Capital & Rayburn House Office Building - Dec 21st 2011 -7:00AM
**We thought we had won the first battle against SOPA**
- Tech Dirt Article with the bad news Update -
But the draconian Entertainment Industry Lobbyist written "Anti-piracy" law that includes due process lacking three strikes bans from the internet, warrantless website shutdowns with court oversite, and internet technology damaging stipulations to remove encrypted secure sessions Is back in congress on Wed Dec 21st 2011.
Scumbag shill congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) and the congressional entertainment industry shills who helped sponsor it were able to manipulate the congressional hearing status for continued study and investigation of SOPA; originally set for mid January 2012, to next week on December 21st. Not even the budget reform bill has gotten this type of unprecedented fast tracking. They are trying to pass this no matter what 90% of the population says or does and no matter what the network engineers of Google, yahoo, Cisco, and hundreds of others warn them.
This will repressively damage the security and function of the internet if SOPA is passed. The fear of the loss of the freedom of speech and rise of state sponsored corrupt corporate mandated censorship is the first steps to fascism and big brother.
And for those who don't seem to care .... it could ban Reddit.
Take a Stand people. Join me on the December 21st 2011 on the steps of the US Capital and then on to the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill if you can and help me protest this.
"NO ON SOPA - H.R.3261"
