OMG! BLACKOUT!

OMG! Ubuntu! is taking part in this weeks ‘Blackout‘ campaign in protest at Australia’s proposed Internet Censorship bill.

The Internet is one of the most valuable, innovative and sacred tools available today. It has changed our lives, our economies and our method of communication forever. It rocks!

For one Government to control what and how citizens access it, under the guise of ‘protecting them from danger’, is misguided and leaves the doorway for potential political manipulation of the masses wide-open.

I urge all Australian readers to visit http://www.internetblackout.com.au/ to find out what they can do to stop their country joining an elite club whose current memberships consists of China, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Hmm – great people to be sharing ideological policies on free-speech with!

Keep the internet awesome ” keep it free!
