Stop SOPA and PIPA
We have shut down our site today in support of those fighting government censorship of the internet.
Today is a national day of action against the PIPA (Protect IP Act) and SOPA (Stop online piracy) bills worming their way through the United States Senate and House.
These follow on the heels of the Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (which made it “legal” for the President to authorize the indefinite detention without trial of “enemy combatants” on American Soil) and would constitute a massive infringement of free speech.
If you do not understand how bad these bills are please watch this short four minute video you can find here: http://vimeo.com/31100268 31100268
I am also recommending you read up on this further. You can find an excellent preview of the Day of Action on DailyKos.com, included is a bunch of links about the bills. Also, please go to http://americancensorship.org/ .
