Today, January 18th, 2012, will be the largest internet protest in history. Thousands of sites across the internet, including some of the biggest in the world, will be blacking out and directing people to contact Congress to kill the web censorship bill, SOPA and PIPA. We want to get you involved.
Join us on this historic day by blacking out your site. Copy the code below and paste it into the header of your theme (Wordpress users: use the SOPA Strike plugin) to black your site out in protest of SOPA/PIPA. It will activate automatically on Jan. 18th, displaying this page and directing visitors to contact Congress, and will deactivate at the end of the day.
In just 7 days, the Senate will vote on forever altering the free and open internet by instituting a new regime of extra-judicial, corporate-led website takedowns. This is a fundamental fight about who has power in society — the people with the means to communicate freely or the governments and corporations that feel threatened.
The clock is ticking, and we’re still 35 senators short of the number we need to kill the bill. Don’t just sit idly by and allow these bills to pass. If they pass, Tumblr, Facebook, Formspring, Youtube, and thousands of other sites could all be shut down or drastically censored. Speak out against this injustice. Stand up for your rights. Do something. We CAN make a difference.
