Attn: Joomla User Group Members

On January 24, 2012, the internet as we know it will shut down if we don't take immediate action. Links are provided in this email to informational sites plus videos explaining this dilemma.

Blackout January 23, Monday: The following companies protesting S.O.P.A. will shut down their entire websites in protest of the impending bill currently before the Senate. The bill has already been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. It's just one step away from reality.


Companies denouncing S.O.P.A. 

  • Facebook, Google, Twitter, Wikipedia, Yahoo, AOL & more
  • Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader
  • Democratic Reps. Zoe Lofgren and Anna Eshoo 
  • Republican Rep. Ron Paul

Companies/Hollywood Stars in favor of S.O.P.A.

  • All presidential candidates except Ron Paul
  • Lady Ga Ga (Currently shutting fans down on YouTube who sing her songs)


HOW TO TAKE ACTION Please go voice your opinion to our Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison so she will vote against S.O.P.A. Just visit to submit an online form. 


Thanks to Southwest Digital Media for this emergency legislative alert, which was provided to us at our last Joomla meeting. A link to the non-profit org sponsoring a petition is at the top of the website.
