Still waiting for the final details, but if you feel strongly about the Rudd Government’s plans to apply arbitrary censorship to the internet while failing to block access to illegal material, you’ll want to pencil this one in.
There’s going to be a rally this Saturday against the so-called “clean feed”.
More details on Facebook with the location apparently a bit wobbly but we’ll fill you in when we hear.
UPDATED: The following note has been added:
- Hey everyone,
Sorry, due to a conflict, we have had to change the location to City Walk in Civic (near the fountain outside of the Canberra Centre). Please let anyone you have forwarded information to know.
This issue will affect us all, and the scary thing is that most Australians have never even heard of it. Pass on this event, send an email, mention it to everyone you know. If they are unaware and concerned, send them to http://www.nocleanfeed.com/ so they can learn more.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
If anyone has any free time over the next few days please contact me. We are behind the eight ball in that ACT only just got organisers, while the other states have been planning their events for weeks, if not months.
We mainly need help getting the word out there. The Christmas shopping rush gives us a great opportunity to hand out flyers outside of the malls and raise awareness of this issue and the rally.
We also have many other jobs that could desperately use an extra hand (marshalls, sign makers and posters, performers, media and guest speaker liasons etc.).
Little or lot, we will happily take whatever you can offer!
