Stop American Censorship
On Wednesday Jan. 18th thousands of sites will go dark to protest SOPA & PIPA, two US bills racing through Congress that threaten prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression.
On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill - PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House - to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit's lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day.
Here are a few easy things you can do:
- Educate yourself about how SOPA and PIPA work.
- Print and mail letters to your states senators and representatives, urging them not to support this. Physical mail is harder to ignore than email. It piles up. You can find representatives addresses here and senators addresses here. Remember that PIPA is a Senate bill and SOPA is a House of Representatives bill.
- Call your senators and representatives on the phone and urge them not to support the bills. See above links for phone numbers or click here to get a quick list of representatives based on where you live.
Otherwise someday, you may see this instead of a login sign, just because someone wanted this site taken down.
