GetUp SaveTheNet Petition


One for Aussie Readers: the nice folks at GetUp are running an antiCleanFeed Petition protesting the implementation of the coming Vegemite Wall, and they've given me some boilerplate to spruik for them.
Hi,

Did you know the Government is proposing an internet censorship scheme that goes further than any other democracy in the world?

I've just signed a petition to prevent the scheme that will make the internet up to 87% slower, more expensive, accidentally block up to one in 12 legitimate sites, will miss the vast majority of inappropriate content and is very easily sidestepped. The government of the day may add any 'unwanted' site to a secret blacklist under the scheme.

Our Government should be doing all in its power to take Australia into the 21st century economy, and to protect our children. This proposed internet censorship does neither. Can you join me and take action on the net today to save the net?

Thanks!
Wasn't that nice of them? Time's running out. Go sign the petition now. Or we'll all end up Happy Little Vegemites.
