No Clean Feed: Stop Internet Censorship in Australia
No Clean Feed, a project of Electronic Frontiers Australia, is doing research and organizing public opposition to the "clean feed", the Australian federal government's plan to impose internet censorship. Info on the issues, reporting on what's known about the still-undisclosed details, with links for more; if you find any BS, please let me know- there's no time for BS in these trying times, imho- and no need to put up with it in the transparent and immediately interconnected world wide web.
Gotta love the crowd-powered new media; i found out about this from TruthAction.org. Posting this for the Web, the World and all my mates in Australia.
What is the 'Clean Feed'?
The Australian Federal Government is pushing forward with a plan to force Internet Service Providers [ISPs] to censor the Internet for all Australians. This plan will waste tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and slow down Internet access.
Despite being almost universally condemned by the public, ISPs, State Governments, Media and censorship experts, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy is determined to force this filter into your home.
